While we haven’t had many April showers, I am getting a jump on the may flowers bit. Last month, I mentioned that the main wall in our living room needed some colorful artwork. And while the room itself is still coming together thanks to some awesome in-progress built-ins, some artwork definitely helps to start pulling it together into a finished space.
After snagging three canvases at Hobby Lobby (hello 40% off week!) and recycling some of the leftover paint from our basement stash, I was feeling pretty good about my on-the-cheap splash of color for our living room. We obviously are digging our green in here, but it was quickly becoming a little one-sided. While yours truly is not an illustrator by ANY stretch, I can muster some swoopy lines that turn into rows and rows of petals. I also can make a mean dot or two. Plus I was able to use up a ton of leftover paint from this project and from painting these yellow stools in our kitchen. Adding one color to another made this great warm red for the background color.
The flowers are up – spring is officially in full swing!
