DIY Solid Color Photo Backdrops
I’ve been working behind the scenes with one of my favorite designers on all new branding for Sarah Hearts! I cannot wait to share it all with you! In the meantime, I’m working on sprucing up a couple things here and there to get ready for the rebrand.
One of the things on my to-do list was to create some new photo backdrops in my new color palette. So when my friend Rachel posted about creating her own photo backdrops last week, I finally went to the store and picked up supplies to make my own! With just a few supplies, I created 6 bright and oh-so-Sarah Hearts backdrops that you will soon see in lots of photos.
I went to Lowes and matched Valspar paint samples to my new color palette. I had each color mixed in a sample size. They are a great value for a ton of craft projects! They are so much cheaper (and way easier) than custom mixing the color yourself with craft paint.
Want a pro-tip? Cover your paint tray with Press ‘N Seal. This one is a game changer you guys. No clean up after painting? Yes, please!
Use a foam roller to cover the entire surface of the plywood with paint. The foam roller covers quickly and leaves a perfectly smooth finish. You will likely need to apply 2-3 coats to get a solid look. I found it covered best when you rolled the paint on perpendicular to the wood grain. Just allow the paint to dry for 10-15 minutes between coats. Once you’re done, you can flip the board over and paint the other side a different color. Easy peezy and perfect for all kinds of photos!
Colors used are Valspar Rose Dust, Camille Pink, Afternoon Tea, Fountain Mist, Poppy Field, Rushing Stream
