Orange & Navy Wall Art Upcycle Makeover


Orange Blue Home Decor Entryway Makeover Upcycle madeinaday.comHi guys! Today is the second Thrift Store Decor Upcycle! I’ve teamed up with 19 of my favorite bloggers for a monthly challenge to make something fantastic out of something thrifted!

I found these two watercolor canvases and thought they would be perfect to makeover. The canvases were in great shape and the hardware was almost new.

Lately I’ve been addicted to blue and and orange everything, just take a look at my blog colors this Spring. So when I saw these pics I knew I could add some colorful paint to perk these guys up. Let’s do a makeover!!

Orange Navy Wall Art Makeover


  • Thrift store canvases
  • Acrylic paint: White, navy blue, coral, steel (grey) blue
  • Paint brushes


Prime canvas before paintingPaint all the white areas first with two coasts of white paint to brighten the background.

DIY Orange and Navy Blue Wall ArtI followed the pattern that was already on the canvases and added coral & blue randomly in the pattern. Touch up with baby wipes when needed. Let it dry and you are ready to hang!

I hung them over my hall tree to brighten up my entryway for summer and they came out so fun. I love the color pop when you walk in the door! Who knew those two dingy pic’s could look so amazing!

  1. So clever to use the print that was already there. Love the new modern look of the canvases.

  2. Great project! I admit the hat and bag really visually drew me in, though…. 🙂 Must try an epicycle myself.

    Also just wanted to point out your image misspells the word “upcycle” and says “upcyce” instead.

    1. I am such a ditz Thanks for letting me know. It’s been there all weekend, yuck. Thanks for the sweet comments.

  3. What a smart way to get inexpensive canvases for your art. I love how your paintings turned out!

  4. You made it look so easy! I love that you simply repainted the design rather than start from scratch. My mantra is work smarter, not harder. Orange is a fun color for summer!

  5. These canvases really brighten up your room for spring. It’s great that the pattern on them was one that you liked so that you could simply paint over it.

  6. I love your art and I love that you used thrift store canvases because that saves money! Your wall looks great!
