Pinterest Challenge: Put a Ring on It

10 Jul

I’m back, baby.

Well, sort of. Posting will still be light this week, but I couldn’t stay away today.

Why? Today is the Pinterest Challenge!


Yes. Celebration is in order.

As you’ll recall from this post, the Pinterest Challenge was dreamed up by Sherry from Young House Love and Katie from Bower Power to get us all to actually make some of this fun stuff we pin.

Brilliant, huh?

This challenge comes at the perfect time for me.

Pinterest, meet my naked walls. Naked walls, meet Pinterest.

I have recently been pinning art on Pinterest that looked DIY-able (word?).

Notice a theme?

Yeah, I’ve been feeling the circles.

So, I grabbed a canvas I had purchased awhile back, picked up some Martha Stewart acrylic paint in gold and a plastic stadium cup, and got to work.

I used the stadium cup as a stamp, and stamped gold rings all over the canvas. I didn’t try to match it up too much or make it perfect – I wanted it to be a little wonky, as my English friend Abby would say.

To finish it off, I painted each side of the canvas with the gold paint.

I love it! It took about an hour and a half and it reminds of some way high-end pieces I’ve seen online and in decor blogs.

The wall needs a lot more, but consider it semi-clothed now. Bikini-clad, perhaps?

Are you joining in the Pinterest Challenge fun? Share your links below – I can’t wait to see what you’ve made!

Be sure to check out the blogs of our challenge hosts, Sherry, Katie, Kate from Censational Girl and Michelle from Ten June.

Happy Pinterest Challenge Day to all!
