Repurpose Old Canvas Art
If you have any unwanted art that doesn’t fit the style of your home decor, an amazing craft to do is to repurpose the canvas. The process itself is only 2 steps: painting the frame, and covering the canvas with a background image. For the first step, tape off where the frame ends and canvas begins so you don’t get paint on the canvas, and paint the frame whatever color fits your home decor best. Then start covering the canvas with a background image. Use modge podge for permanent coverage or spray the back of the new image with adhesive tape.
