I regrettably can’t find the blog where I had found this tip. I wish I could give her the well deserved credit!
Looking to purchase a large canvas and not wanting to spend a lot of money, miss blogger (that’s what we’ll have to call her) went to her local Lowe’s and found a cost effective solution. A hollow wood door.
I couldn’t believe what a great idea this was, and I had to try it out right away!!
So, I purchased a door at Lowe’s for roughly $25. I didn’t need the entire length of the door for what I had planned. So, I cut it in two. Using one half as a canvas for my daughter to paint and the other half to upholster for her headboard.
I am so pleased with the results! And seriously, an upholstered headboard and an original painting both from $25 hollow wood door!! You can do it too. Check out the whole procedure in fun decorating projects page.
