DIY Sunday: Easy Wall Art

Hello Everyone!

I spent all weekend being very focused on craft projects and my daughter. My husband was busy studying, and I was on baby duty. We had a blast playing around with her new potty and toy vanity. While she was sleeping, I did this art project for my office wall. I found the tutorial on Young House Love.  (Via Pinterest) That blog that has exploded over the last year...with good reason. It's fantastic!

I decided to use a dark purple and two different shades of blue. The entire project was super affordable. I got the canvas for only 12$ at Hobby Lobby with a 40% coupon. The paint is only 3 little tubes for 60 cents with a large white bottle to dilute. So the entire project was around $15.00! My office wall is a dark purple, and I am making chair covers that have some blue. I'm really excited for the way it turned out. I kinda want to keep it home with me. :)

The painting at home.

I'm not sure what you mean by blog verifier. I don't get that message when I post.
