DIY Canvas light art

DSC_4857If you followed my daughters room makeover process!! on my wishlist was a light art project! View more of my moodboard here!!! And the complete room makeover is here and here!

DIY Canvas light art Collage 1

  1. Mix up the paint color of your choice. I used the color I used for the colorblock wall!! It was bit tough to work with! But It turned out fine.
  2. Considering I was using wall paint on canvas for an easy application i used this foam brush thing! It gave much cleaner application and was very east to use!

3. Next I used a pencil to sketch the letters. The font I used was a double lettered font. I drew a line in the middle and on that I dotted around 1 inch apart. That is where I wanted to insert ferry lights.

4. To punch holes I used this screwdriver! Make sure you count the dots carefully to avoid any awkward gaps! I used two ferry light strings of 100 bulbs. So I divided equally 200 dots for the holes!

5. Start punching!

This side of the wall was painted grey somehow. According to the earlier plan of the room it was supposed to be a twin room for an infant baby boy and my toddler girl. But change of plans we bought a queen sized bed and ended up with a room with a wall in pink and a wall in grey! I still loved the grey and to make it a little more fun I added the cloud wall pattern and the raindrops!

So lets see!

This side of the room fetures a

This was a looooong and a very exciting project for me! It was full of DIYs and allllot of changes. The idea was to create a girly space with the minimum expense. The bed was the same needed but was asking for a major!!! headboard update. I first intended to make a fluffy headboard by sticking some fun fabric to it. (coz it was leather everything stuck beautifully) after trying a couple of opotion and couple of hours of sticking it didnt work. The headboard looked messy and less than inviting.. So for a cleaner space i draped these gorgeous dhurries over it to tie up the whole color scheme. I love how it adds character and the flufy thing becomes the centerpiece.. another easy DIY

First step of the transformation was ofcourse paint! I had to create a feature wall and for the whole process check out my post DIY Feature Wall : Color block wall . I am sure you will enjoy the glitches and the love this wall recieved.

So if you checked out my moodboard I had on my list

pom poms

tassels

mint

dhurrie rung

and colorblock wall

I added lots of fun tassles and

For the side tables I added a geometric garden stool on one end and on the other I used this rtretrieved entertainment unit and gave it a coat of paint.. nAd I had plenty of storage and a home for all the pretty cupcake pillows and books and with the net hanging it turned into my daughters favorite reading nook!!!

These floating shelves for books are not actually from ikea.. well technically they are. When we moved to this house we bought a toddler bed for our daughter. On a whim y hussband bought this queen bed as well and suddenly there was no room for a toddler bed and it sat in pieces and logs under our bed for a long time gathering dust.When I saw those amazing floating shelves, it hit me the sides of the toddler bed could be used to the same purpose. My husband bought some L shape things (levers i guess dont know what they are called :D) and he attached the sides of the beds to the wall so it could work as the floating book shelf and can house the books that our little one own.

So these floating shelves practically cost me a dollar I guess!!!!

Not bad!!!!! (pat on the back)

My favourtie feature has to be the mint whimsical star pillow with the pom poms!!!! I am in love with it !!! its just tooooo cuuuute!!!!!

The bedding is an old gift I don’t have the brand of it. The net hanging is from ikea and it has been upgraded with the tassles!!!

The paper lanterns are from Daiso and so is that heart garland!

The fur hanging over the bed is a DIY as well which is soon to be published!!!
