We have lived in the house over a year and I have held true to the "no-touching-the-man-cave" policy I set in place.......until now. It's like an itch you have to scratch or shaking Christmas presents. I just couldn't wait any longer. And does the hubby know that I touched the Man Cave? Heck no! He's off at deer camp
Let me remind you of what the room looked like
Needed supplies for graphic/simple/manly artwork: canvas, spraypaint, and masking tape.
To make the pattern, add strips of masking tape in no particular pattern to the canvas. Be sure to extend the strips onto the edges so the pattern continues. Here is what mine looks like while adding the tape.
After you get the tape on the canvas, it's time for spray paint.
Give the canvas two coats of spray paint and let it dry. Then the fun part, peeling off the tape.
Looks great! Yipee! Hang on the wall and enjoy. This was almost too easy; hardly took any time to make. Double yipee!
Project cost breakdown:
Canvas $6.30 (30% off)
Tape $1.99 on sale
Paint $2.40 on sale
I love it...especially for $10. And when the hubby got home, he loved it too - the entire room. (I'll post about the other projects I did in the room - no sew curtains from sheets, no sew pillows, and asymmetrical wall art grouping.) He thought the artwork was inspired by Van Halen's Frankenstein guitar...which it wasn't, but it does look similar. So now the artwork is extra great for a Man Cave.
Have y'all made any artwork lately? Ever made any artwork inspired from a guitar? What are your thoughts on a Man Cave? Should it be a no-woman / don't touch zone? Or is a little woman-design-touch okay?
