Mister Sister! Episode 3: Chic Bedroom Design

Share

Don’t you love how Tess’ bedroom turned out? I’m so happy with the transformation and it was really easy to get this peaceful, elegant look in Tess’ rental apartment. In Episode 2 of Mister Sister we created some custom bathroom artwork and this week we do another fun text art DIY using a giant canvas with a snarky poem by Tess and a custom frame by the talented Joey! Watch the episode above and see more Before and After photos below and let us know what you think, we love hearing from you!

Do It! (Counting Sheep Text ART) “One Sheep, Two Sheep, Three Sheep…shit, I want cookies!”:

  1. I prepped the large canvas by thickly applying acrylic paint in a pale ivory/coral and a light taupe. This adds texture to the canvas and makes it look more finished. I also wanted to add more color to the room than just all white.
  2. Tape down your stencil letters using painter’s tape – you may have to reuse some letters that repeat in your phrase.
  3. We taped off all around the letters to connect the stencils making the next step easier to paint everything at once.
  4. Lightly cover your foam roller in paint and roll over the stencils.  Let dry.
  5. Peel off your stencils and you’re done.

Do It! (FRAME):

  1. Stain your wood with a rag.  Simply rub the stain saturated rag all over the wood until the wood is coated. Let dry.
  2. Cut one end of each of the four pieces of wood at a 45 degree angle.  To do this clamp your wood to your miter box and saw along the 45 degree angle notch.
  3. Measure the outside perimeter of your canvas.
  4. Measure from the innermost (short side) of your 45 degree angle cut to match the length of your canvas. This will be the point from which to angle up and out your next 45 degree cut. (Refer to the diagram below.)
  5. Once all four pieces are cut, it’s time to let them hug your canvas!  Start gluing your corresponding 45 degree angles together and staple along the seam. We stapled on both sides for a really secure hold since it was such a big canvas. TIP: rub a little stain over the staple to camouflage against the wood.
  6. Hang your new custom art and enjoy!

How did you hang the artwork over the bed? I'm always worried heavy pieces will fall.

Go to the picture hanging section at your local hardware store. The packages will say how many pounds each product supports! Best of luck! xox
