Easy Peasy Wall Art

Last week we were preparing for some visitors -- namely, our good friends from OK and this week my in-laws are flying in -- so I decided to do a little shopping with Christmas cash (thanks, Nana and Graddad!). Having visitors also motivated me to finish up a few projects. In particular, I created some really easy wall art for the guest bedroom. 

All it involved was some Dollar Tree frames, white spray paint, pretty scrapbook paper, and scissors to cut the paper to size.



Ta da! I'm drooling over it...mostly because it was so easy and so fast. Why didn't I do this months ago?

I also transformed these gaudy candlestick holders with some lovely silver metallic Krylon spray paint. Oh how I adore you spray paint! These candlestick holders were on clearance for $4 and $5 from Target.

Here's the before:

Now for the after:


Have you created wall art or transformed something lately? I would love to see it! Please leave a link.  :)

  1. I love the silver mat finish on the candlesticks. I can't look at shiny brass without thinking '80's.
