Pottery Barn Knock Off January 18, 2011 DIY, Home Decor, Tutorials 30 Comments 11751 Many bloggers out there have duplicated this numbers canvas from Pottery Barn. Image courtesy of Pottery Barn Fortunately that means I got plenty of info on how to make my own 🙂 It’s discontinued now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have it in my living room. I mostly used this super detailed and helpful tutorial from Simply Sarah. First I designed the canvas in Paint Shop Pro with our anniversary and birthdays. I decided to just free hand the numbers instead of trying to blow up my design to the 30×40 canvas size. If you’re not artistically inclined, you can follow Sarah’s method of printing it on multiple 8 1/2×11 pages and piecing it together. It turns out that the free-handing allowed me to be a little more creative and I completely changed the arrangement from what I designed. *sigh* Using unbleached titanium with accents of titanium white, I filled in the numbers. Using raw umber, I filled in the background. I painted the edges as well, wrapping the numbers where they “fell off” the edge. Once it was dry, I hung it over our couch. It’s not perfect (freehand, remember?!), but I do really love it. It works perfectly with my new more neutral living room. I was so happy to get rid of that blue and green flower print that hung there for almost 4 years! Would you ever try one of these? If you have, do share!
