DIY Grid Painting

If you frequent Big Box Detox you will know that I am always looking for affordable art options.  When I found this super thin painter’s tape in our basement (left by the previous owner) I thought it would be perfect for a DIY art project and the grid painting was born!

To complete this project here is what you need…

To start, tape off your blank canvas in a grid.

Next step: tape the other directions

Once your canvas is taped up it is time to paint!  Paint your squares and remove the tape.

Before you know it you have easy and affordable art for your walls!

So happy with how it turned out! Still deciding on where to put it in my house!
