DIY Chevron Ikat Canvas

DIY Ikat Canvas:  Child at Heart

This past few months I have been fixing up our little southwest-inspired rental and it’s been a blast. I have been using lots of blush pink, coral, orange, and deep dark red. I had an ikat painting from the old house but it died during the move to El Paso. So, of course, I had to do another one for the new house. I used the chevron ikat pattern that I shared in my ikat video tutorial and here is the finished canvas.

I used acrylic paint and LOVED the copper paint because it looks different from every part of the room.  I glued some lace around a terra cotta pot and made a printable to finish off the mantle.  If you would like access to this printable and others, subscribe to my blog and you will get them all for free 🙂

    Could you please mention the colours used in this painting? I love the combination and want to try it out, but don’t know the colours’ name.
