About This Project

I followed the plans for the Kids Tent / Reading Nook but used a 9'x12' painter's drop cloth canvas instead of curtain panels. (I made 3 tents so I cut this into thirds...)

To make it even more fun, I painted stripes on the canvas by mixing regular latex paint (Valspar in Orange Crush, Twist of Lime, Dive In, and Cheery on Top) 2-to-1 with a textile medium.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$10-$20 + paint
Estimated Time Investment: 
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Type of Wood: 
Cheap furring strips
Finish Used: 
Valspar interior latex paint in Orange Crush, Twist of Lime, Dive In, and Cheery on Top
