To all of you coming over from Pinterest:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't believe the how popular this little post has become. If you decide to try this project, please send me a link so I can check it out! I would love to see your ideas! Also, there's a misconception going around Pinterest that you can use glue for this project. Several people have told me that glue does not work. Just thought I'd let you know ahead of time! Thanks again!

Now back to your regularly scheduled program....
When my best friend got a new apartment in Philly, I decided to make her something special. I wanted to experiment some more with puffy paint, but I didn't want white on white.
Sorry this is a little dark, it was 10 pm when I took these photos. Anyway...
I started this project by painting the canvas purple. I love getting the sample size from Lowe's because it gives me the opportunity to pick the exact color I want.
You may be wondering why the carpet cleaner is in this photo. No, Charlie did not have an accident. While the paint was still drying I dropped the canvas, paint-side down, onto the carpet. Luckily, with a lot of elbow grease and a little carpet cleaner, you can't even see it....I think.
I chose this font because I wanted something a little more traditional to go with Katie's decor.
The good news is that...she likes it! I'm so glad she likes it, but I'm mostly just glad to get it out of my apartment! That song has been stuck in my head since I started this project 3 weeks ago!
