Inexpensive DIY wall art:  Thrift store art + vinyl letters + coat of paint, then remove vinyl letters.  Cool idea.  (No link here-- pin only goes to photo.)

googled it and did it
1. PIck up a LP album cover from your local thrift shop or garage sale or grandparents or… your record collection

2. Get vinyl letters ( got mine from the dollar store)

3. Apply letters to the record to say the phrase of your choice

4. Paint over entire album cover with your choice of paint (acrylic)

5. Let paint dry and remove vinyl letters (I’m super impatient and couldn’t wait to let it completely dry before I pulled off my letters and it still turned out perfect..FYI)

One more picture of one I did. I wanted the letters to pop a little so I did a light wash over them in a light colored blue paint.20130518-083846.jpg

Ok and one of me working on my creation with my niece.

  1. I haven’t seen the album art version of this! It’s so great! Canvas can be so expensive; I like this much more!
