How to Fill a Wall with DIY Art


I needed a focal point.  Kinda a "lesser or two evils" focal point.  Please excuse the wall color and the "hot mess" of a living room.  I do things backwards. I hang art only to have to take it down to paint the walls. I am living in a combobulated state.

Here's my inspiration:

What you need:
Canvases (I used 24"x24")
Paint (I just used poster paint)
Math skills



This is my craft room. It's a mess. Why did I think it was a good idea to make this room the first room you see when you walk into my house? Sheesh!  I promise to blog about this craft room soon!!

My "I am still in the middle of remodeling/decorating" living room. I told you I needed a new focal point! Just keep'n it real :)

Anyone know of a good trim carpenter / handyman in Houston?

Uh oh, you lost me at "math skills"... :) Just kidding. It looks great! So bold.

That is just stunning! I like the black and white much better than the yellow that was your inspiration. Thanks for sharing this how-to!

Incredible!!! and the reason you put that room FIRST is because it is the most important room in the house!! :):) My craft room is my kitchen! I have one in our lower level... but I never go downstairs to use it... so it's GOOD that yours is CLOSE!
