DIY Wall Art

19 Sep

I’ve slowly been doing my bathroom over. I’m pretty much done except for a few touches – one of which is some art to hang on a bare wall.  Since I can’t afford to buy anything right now, I thought I’d try my hand at making my own.  I’ve seen many people do this successfully but wasn’t quite sure I could pull it off….I’m still not.

I purchased some tiny canvases at our local dollar store. 3 for $2. Can’t beat that!  Then I scoured the net for some ideas and found this.  I painted the base of the canvases during the day and then relaxed in front of the television that night with a tiny brush and a glass of wine. What better way to spend a Saturday night?

What do you think?  I’m still not sure about them.  I’m scared they come off as kid-ish.  I’ll know more once I hang them on the wall.  I promise I’ll post pics of my bathroom when it’s done.
