Every Day I'm Shufflin'...

I've been on the lookout for artwork for our office and haven't had much luck. We spend massive amounts of time in there so I want it to be something that either makes us happy or...well, that's it. It HAS to make us happy. Our goal is to have the walls decked out with travel pictures that we have taken. They definitely make us happy. I was also hoping to bring in some more color and as I was looking through my Pinterest boards I was reminded of one of my very first pins. This pin from Virginia and Charlie definitely makes me happy. The author made this incredibly fun canvas for a friend with the simple phrase 'Every day I'm Shufflin' from the LMFAO song. And, I decided that this would be perfect for our office!

She gives fantastic step-by-step instructions so I'll let her cover that.  I will, however, share a picture of how mine turned out.

What do you think?

This project was a fun one to do and extremely inexpensive.  If you decide to recreate it yourself you'll need:

  • A Canvas - Hobby Lobby currently has 2 pack of 11x14 canvases (one left over for another project) - for $5.99
  • Behr paint sample in Carrot Stick (240B-7) from Home Depot - $2.50 - Choose a color that goes with your color scheme!
  • White puffy paint - $1.50 at Hobby Lobby
  • Mod Podge - ~$7.00 (I already had a bottle and still have a ton left so I've used this on multiple projects and still have leftovers for many more!)
  • Wax paper

And...I'll leave you with this (cued up to the good stuff):
