I've seen on several blogs this painting from Pottery Barn.
I love this piece as well and decided I too would try my hand at making my own.
I first painted my entire 16x20 canvas a creamy white. While the painting was drying I cut several numbers of all sizes with my borrowed Cricut that I have not yet returned. Since my mom only has a few cartridges to select from I had limited options for fonts to use. Okay, I had one option for font.
After the paint had dried I placed the numbers on the canvas and stuck them down securely and took the painting outside to give the entire painting a coat of black spray paint. When the paint was dry to the touch I began to peel away the numbers to reveal the white numbers under.
I then left the painting dry over night and the next day gave the entire canvas a light sanding to give it a distressed look.
The final results... is a pretty good knock off.
Now I just need to find it a place on a wall.
The only thing I would change is the size of canvas I used. This is a statement piece that really should be rather large. My 16x20 canvas seems a bit small.
