Homemade Art: Posterboard and Paint

I've had two large frames begging for some attention and after looking high and low for something to fill them with I took matters into my own hands.
Dollar store poster board and a mix of craft paint in hand I started slapping paint here and there and came up with my own abstract art to fill the two lonely frames.
Attempt #1:

Attempt #2

Both turned out respectable enough to hang on either side of the living room window until I can find something to replace them with.
For now they add a color punch to the walls that I have been craving.

Hope you all have great day,


  1. Oh I am swooning over your vintage fans in your shots.

  2. Very nice, Robin, I love the personal touch in my own house, so I think it's perfectly wonderful!!
    Hugs, Cindy

  3. Awesome job! I think they look totally amazing in your space. Much love, Lisa

  4. Great job Robin!! so simple, but gives the wall just the punch of color you wanted and I like how the book under the fan matches your color choice.

  5. Wow, I just can't get over how creative most people in the wonderful blogging community are, you very much included! They are just perfect there. Congrats!

  6. Turned out great! Your fans are so cute! I like that the black frames tie in with the hint of black in the fans.

  7. That's awesome, girl. They look great and do add a nice pop of color.

  8. I think they turned out pretty cute! Love your little red wagon. Mimi


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
