Case in point, as I had mentioned in this post the living room was due for some small upgrades for Spring. After a couple of weeks of painting and re-painting because, um, I changed my mind, which happens quite frequently (this whole process will be explained in a future post:), I finally got the living room in Chateau C'est La Vie to where it made me smile with satsifaction! All but one wall that was begging for some new art work. Being a budget-decorator, I wanted to add some custom artwork spending the least bit of money possible. So that is when I remembered that I had found some old white painting canvases, still in their package in a corner of our garage. Here they are ready to be tampered with:
I decided that I would make these into a custom-art work project using left-over paint from the living room for a cost-free art solution. It was very simple. Here is the processs with pictures:
Using painter's tape and a level, I sectioned off the areas I wanted to paint using alternating widths on the canvases.
And here is the end result, I love the way it coordinates with the colors in this space and the fact that it is unique, custom artwork for free!
By the way, here is a sneak peak of my gorgeous new Chandelier, Lucy.
And since I'm in the mood for sneak peaks. Here are a few more, like my gorgeous new mirrored side table, Gwen, because she's Glamorous like that;)
Truly in -love, with both... And both Lucy and Gwen were purchased on sale, at an amazing discount price, love the look of luxury on a budget;)
Full reveal and many more updates of the changes I've made in our little Chateau coming very soon. I'll leave you with one more that I'm sure fellow shoe-lovers will like. After being in hiding inside clear shoe boxes in a dark closet, I decided my pretties would feel so much better on display, as art themselves. Love the pop of beautiful color they provide to that side of our master:
Many more projects in the work, including some exciting wedding event designs, master bedroom, kitchen and dining room transformations and much, much more. Stay tuned Mon Amis...
