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 :)
