Family Room Makeover – part 4, Anchors Away

Living in Florida has been great for my love of everything related to the beach. I decided to have a nautical feel in my family room.


To create the background, I combined multiple shades of blue with a foam brush.  I was certain to keep all the same direction.  Don’t forget to paint the sides too.

Next, I added the anchor and rope.  I used the same technique I have used multiple times (explained in depth here).  I have come to love this technique because it is easy and allows me to paint a variety of things I never would be able to paint otherwise.

This canvas worked great above the television, with the extra tall ceilings.
