One of the most overwhelming tasks in decorating a room is deciding on what to put on the walls.
If you aren’t quite sure of your style direction and you are on a budget, the better option may be to go with something not too expensive. When you tire of it, it’s easy to make a change.
I recently ran across this tutorial on making your own feather watercolor. I already had most of the supplies because I took a watercolor class a couple of years ago.
My stash of thrift store frames comes in handy when I get artsy.
I encourage anyone to try watercolor art. You really can’t go wrong; it’s a fun project to play around with. Inspiration can be found in your photos (especially those of beaches or landscapes or gardens) or on Pinterest. If you don’t want to make a big investment, buy one of those little kits for kids.
Below are a few links to some other DIY art projects that I want to try.
This is a long (and funny) post from LiveLoveDIY to
get to the how-to on this art. I like the modern vibe though. Michael’s has huge sheets of paper for 99 cents. Use some left over paint from the garage, and a sponge brush and you’re good.
I have been working on two gallery walls (different rooms) so I will be showing you some of my inexpensive art soon.
I’ve been working on these galleries for months and it’s not easy to get the look I want. There have been bursts of energy, followed by mulling and head-scratching.
I’m off to Ikea later this week for one frame that I haven’t been able to find in my thrift store. Hopefully then I will be able to wrap up that wall.
It would be nice to have it done before Easter.
