Project 2

So lately I've been really trying to use what I already have around the house, instead of going out and spending money for projects. Eventually, I'll run out of what I already have and will have to go replenish the stock of crafty goodies, but as for now, I have yet another successful project completed.
As you remember from my last post, I recently painted my guest room. I am so happy with the outcome but am a little put out by the barrenness of the pretty walls.

Obviously, they need something:

So I took to looking around the craft room {another room that is in need of a makeover} and found two blank canvases that I never used. The reason for never using them is that I am not an artist! I cannot say "I'm gonna paint a picture" and go and paint this original work of art that is inspiring and unique. So, the canvases were blank...

I decided that even though I am not an artist, there are plenty of beautiful pictures that I like and would like to have... so I googled brown art and came up with the perfect picture to paint on my canvas. I even had a few things of paint that have been left over (for years!). So here is the finished product:

After doing one I decided it needed a friend. This one is actually all me, but based off of the previous theme:

Now my wall will have some lovely, homemade FREE art on it!

I can't wait to get some more canvas and see what else I can put around the place :)
