I have a lot of empty walls in my home. One of my New Year's Resolutions was to improve that situation. Yes, I know that it is May. I work at a slow pace.
My son came home from school with this construction paper house, and I loved it. Plus, it happens to match my new color scheme in the living room (I had recovered the couch pillows with teal blue and chartreuse covers). So I picked up this simple frame at a yard sale for .50, spray painted it black, and backed the art with leftover scrapbook paper. I wasn't sure about the green–I had originally thought I should use white for contrast–but I think it's more interesting this way.
What do you think? Worth the .50? I just love how it turned out. Every time I walk into the living room, it brightens my day and makes me smile.
I have big plans for future wall art. I've been keeping a bookmark file of projects I see on blogs and websites that I would like to tackle. You know, in all my spare time this summer. Ha ha ha ha ha
