“I’m just sitting on a shelf” is one of my all-time favourite song lyrics from the band She and Him. Their first album, which the song comes from, has so much meaning in our household that I wanted to display the lyrics somehow.
After a search on Pinterest I found an inventive way of displaying the lyrics via a beautiful mess. This is a really simple project and the possibilities are endless.
For this project you will need:
- A paint by numbers set
- Moveable vinyl lettering
- Spray paint
Begin by painting your paint by numbers.
Once it is dry can you position your letters onto the painting. I used moveable vinyl letters so they could be peeled off without any marks. I used a ruler to make sure the letters were straight and evenly spaced.
Once you are happy with your layout it’s time to spray paint. In a well ventilated area spray the whole picture so the letters and paint by numbers are well covered. I used up and down movements over the picture so as not to get a build up of spray paint in one area.
Once the paint is completely dry, carefully peel off the letters and you’re done.
