Recreate a Design on Canvas
Hi there, this is Bianca from Lotus Theory Designs!
So, I did a thing. Never having painted on canvas before (at least not without wine, my girlfriends, and a paint instructor), I decided to take the plunge and try something new.
I have always wanted to try my hand at canvas painting but something held me back. It wasn’t until my recent dresser, where I freehand painted a flower-scape, I realized I was being silly and told myself – Girl, pick up that brush!
And so, before my newfound burst of courage would have a chance to retreat back into hiding, I immediately ran to the nearest craft store and purchased a canvas.
- Drop Cloth
- Stormy Seas
- Muscadine Wine
- Collard Greens
- Farmhouse Green
- Coffee Bean
- Mud Puddle
- Gold Digger (Moonshine Metallic)
- Dixie Belle Mud in White to create the raised stencil
Watch how I achieved this look below!
The canvas slightly varies from the dresser, which was intentional. On the dresser I did a straight base of Buttercream, rather than a blend of Drop Cloth and Burlap like on the canvas.
I also learned painting on canvas rather than the smooth substrate of furniture is quite different. In the future, I will remember that nugget of info and apply accordingly. Yes, I said in the future. Canvases everywhere, I’m coming for you!

That looks awesome and you make it look easy and fun. Watch out canvases. Biamca is on fire!
Hi Cheryl, thanks so much for your sweet comment! We’re so glad you loved this project. Yes Bianca is amazing!! Happy painting! 🙂
Love this! Would love to try doing this. Sort of wish it wasn’t in fast motion lol. Beautiful job on both the dresser and the canvas.
