So, I love creating art in my home for several reasons.
1.) Its WAY cheaper than buying art at a store.
2.) Its more personal this way
3.) Its WAY cheaper than buying art at a store! lol
For this art project, I am more than happy to say, not only was it CHEAP but some of it was FREE!! I'm not even kidding!
so I started with a basic frame that I got at Garden Ridge for $3.00 on sale. Then I took out the ugly art that was in it and threw it away. Then I took the backing and started gluing on PAINT SAMPLES!!!
No Joke! These are from Ralph Lauren's textured paint line. Some of them are like suede, some are shiny and metallic. I just love them.
I went to Home Depot and just took about 10 of each color that I liked, then brought them home and glued them on with a glue stick.
Let it dry about 2 hours and just slip the backing back into the frame with the glass it came with and hang it up!
Now, sometimes you wont get art that has a back that comes off very easy. That's OK, just tear out the art and then DUCK TAPE the back on! NO JOKE! That's what I did with this one...here I'll prove it! lol You would never have even noticed. :)
Here is a close up of the Paint Samples:
Oh, and while I was trying to get my house all pretty....my blinds decided to break! Ohh...I love life! hehe
***And if your wondering the other piece of art up there is just plain scrap booking paper glued to the backing then duck taped up! lol
