Chandelier Canvas

I loved the Chandelier canvas seen in the Ballard Designs Catalog but was not willing to pay the price, so I decided to make my own.

I found a large canvas mat at the thrift store that was the right size. It already had a design on it but I knew I could easily cover it up with spray paint.

I painted it cream and then stuck on my vinyl sticker stencil found at Roberts. I used a dry brush paint method, using black paint and also walnut wood stain, and covered the entire canvas (including the sides). Then I peeled off the vinyl sticker, and there it was, my very own Chandelier Canvas.

The best part is I only spent about $15 on the whole project, compare that to the $300 bucks they wanted at Ballard. You gotta love that!
