KEEP CALM AND CRAFT ON Peg Board Painting



HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

Hope you all are enjoying the first day of 2013! Can't believe how fast 2012 went for me... what a ride!

Today I want to share with you something I had been wanting to make for a very long time. Probably ever since I first heard the phrase "Keep Calm and Craft on". So a few weeks ago when all the Christmas chaos was happening,  I decided to make a peg board painting for my craft room! 

I had been working on a baby announcement painting at the time and since all my supplies were out I thought I would kill two birds with the same paint brush, lol! I was so busy though I completely forgot to photograph the baby announcement painting to show you  :'( 

Here it is! Isn't it awesome!!! I love how it turned out and how it keeps my stuff pretty and organized all in plain site for easy access! I think it's one of my best ideas yet! 


 To make my peg board painting I first painted the canvas. Click here for a tutorial of how I make my word art paintings. If you want to see how I made to stamp line just above the painting, click here.


Once the painting was dry, I hammered in 2 inch nails all around the frame of the canvas. Yes, of course damaging the painting... I had mixed feelings at this point cause I really liked how the painting turned out... but got over it pretty quick once I saw how functional it became!


Here it is all nailed up before my supplies were all hung.


Hope you liked this tutorial/idea... maybe it will inspire you to create one for your craft room! I hope this painting will keep me calm in 2013 while I continue to craft on!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting :)

  7. Wow!! What a beautifully created and arranged board!! It's perfect. I think if I ever tried to make one like it, things would be off centered and crooked. I'm not good at crafting but your ideas inspire me so much I fool myself into believing I could do it! :)

    I hope you're having a great week and a Happy New Year!

    Thank you so much for linking up to last week's Aloha Friday Blog Hop!! I'm following you.

    If you have time, we'd love to have you come and link up to the Aloha Friday Blog Hop if you haven't already! (Thank you so very much if you've already linked up, I truly appreciate it!!)

    Come and link up and celebrate the coming weekend with us!

    Aloha,

    1. Ha ha, you are too funny Jean! Happy you like the board and love inspiring you... you just have to give yourself some credit, have fun and don't worry it's only paint... once it's dry, if it didn't turn out like you hoped you can always paint over it again! For sure will link up again and Happy New Year to you too :)
