Funny story. As I was nearing the end of the bedroom project, I hadn’t found any art that fit my vision. In desperation, I took the leftover paint from the doors and went to town on some paper. The first few (ok, more than a few) attempts weren’t great, but I kept going until I had something I was happy with. I placed them in some HomeGoods frames, fully intending for them to be temporary, but I’ve grown to love them. It cost $0, and I feel a sense of pride when I look at them. I’m hoping this story encourages some of you to try some DIY art yourself! Scroll down for the step-by-step process.
1. Find inspiration.
First, I searched online until I found the style I wanted to emulate.
2. Grab your supplies.
Luckily, I was able to use supplies I had laying around the house. I used the leftover black paint from the doors in my bedroom, one of my large paintbrushes, and a few smaller paintbrushes from my kids' art supplies.
3. Practice, practice, practice!
It probably took me 20 tries until I had a few I was happy with. I laid them all out on the table and picked the two that were most visually appealing to me.
3. Find the perfect frame.
Finding a frame that perfectly compliments your art makes a big difference with the visual impact. These were a great deal at HomeGoods.
