We have really been buckling down trying to get the office presentable. It is just time. We have now been in the house over a year and the office is the most neglected room. Last weekend, we did find the fabric we are going to use for curtains. My next center of focus is now art! We have the couch in there along a big blank wall that is just crying out for some art. So I went online and started pricing some prints and art that I liked and would fill up the wall nicely. Let me just tell you that the cost (not even including the frames!) was in the 500 dollar range. No, thank you!
Instead, I went to Michael's and spent 9 dollars on some nice drawing paper. I already had the paints and brushed around the house. I was ready to paint! I found inspiration all over the Internet and made sure to use colors that worked well with the fabric. Here are some of the things I painted.
I still have 4 paintings that I need to do. Not only was it fun, but it saved us hundred of dollars! I even got all the frames from Michael's when they were 50% off and I had a coupon for an additional 25% off. I love it.
