The Canvas: A Lifetime Project

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member inglenookdecor from the Su Casa group:

I thought I would share the newest cities my husband and I have added to our stenciled canvas wall art. It's all the cities we've been to together that mean so much to us. (We didn't include the ones we've been to solo, no matter how exciting they were).living room

A little cheesy and corny I know, but most artwork this big is in the $2000s. I can just imagine us getting older adding more and more (the letters will get smaller and smaller or we'll make two or three more . . . we plan to travel much people!) and the memories of those places so vivid, it would feel like we were there yesterday. Sorry, I'm going all The Notebook here. We even stenciled the cities in together of course, me commenting on how crooked he made some of the letters. Or maybe that was me who did it?

Have you done any DIY decorating lately? Be sure to share your photos in the Su Casa group!

I absolutely love this! I don't think it's really corny or cheesy at all. I'd love to do something similar to this, me and my boyfriend have traveled quite a bit (but not since we got our new apartment, which desperately needs to be decorated). This may seem like a silly question, but did you get the canvas at your local crafts store or did you get a nicer one from someplace else? It looks great!

@inglenookdecor, def not cheesy at all! I might do something similar since you have inspired me. Totally think this is an awesome idea for kids too!

definitely! my daughter is sooo spoiled, she doesn't even know it. She's been to more places than me & I only started traveling in my 30's!

I like that idea. Maybe I'll to do the same with the kids and add years to it as they are likely not to remember all the travels they did when they were young...
