Sometimes you need an awesome date night but can’t afford to do anything that you really want to do. This rings true for the boo and I as well plus we have a wedding on the horizon. Needless to say, the funds are tight at this time. However, limited funds do not mean we can skip out dating. In fact, now is the time where it gets fun because it gives us a chance to come up with ways to spend time with each other.
This date night was simple. We waited for Canvases to go on sale and used a coupon to buy paint. All together, with wine, paint, and canvases we spent 20 dollars. Next, we used those pesky circulars that come in our mail week to week to protect our table and then we started painting away. We used our phones to set the mood with some music and I used my iPad to get an idea of what I wanted to paint. He decided to do some things completely different, all in all, we have had a great time.
Two Canvases (any size you want)
One Bottle of wine (or any juice for none drinkers)
One Variety Pack of paint
One pack of paint brushes (Variety pack)
Start by protecting your table or surface with Newspaper. Next, open the fresh pack of canvases, and paint over the canvas white. This helps spread paint further. Next pick what you want to paint if you’re not an artist start simple, and look for things with a lot of negative space. Pour yourself a glass of wine (or juice) at any time. While you’re engaging in the activity strike up a conversation. Laugh, smile, and have a good night. In comparison, one wine and paint class is $35 per person. So essentially this awesome date saved us $50. Check out our cool pictures from the date, and share your experience with DIY date night.
Until next time…
