unique date idea: Give graffiti a shot but in a legal way

This spring break, instead of going out to the clubs or staying home and playing video games, why not try something new? How about a life experience that is both fun and fulfilling?

A few friends and I went down to a local hardware store where we got a piece of plywood for an affordable price. The possibilities are endless with what you can do with a piece of plywood – from painting murals on your bedroom wall all the way up to making furniture. We decided to spray paint our board black because it’s cheap, easy, and makes whatever you create stand out better.

You could probably even argue that spray paint art is now becoming mainstream as there are now entire competitions dedicated only to the craft. Don’t be afraid if you are just starting out either, because the more you do it, the better you will get. They can be very time consuming to create too, so if you really want your work to stand out then take the time.

Our board ended up looking pretty good once we were done; however I made the mistake of not taking into account how light it would get in direct sunlight. Moral of story: spray paint it black! It may not look like much now but when I take a closer picture with better lighting you will see what I mean.

Another option is stencils; they are relatively easy to make and give you more control over design than spray paint does. The downside is that they require steady hands and patience because any little slip up and you will have to do it all over again.

The good news is that both stencils and spray paint art are relatively cheap and easy ways to make some unique wall decorations of your own at home or even on the road! It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced artist; everyone has a first time doing something new, so get off your couch and give it a shot!
