Make Your Own Wall Art!

I’ve been dying to inject some personality in to our new home, which is generally in good modern order, and a blank canvas, apart from the holes where the previous owners removed their own wall art.

I started with the Pollyfilla, a new skill for me and so easy, why didn’t we do that the week we moved in?!

I wanted art in the kitchen first, so after searching for a few hours, ordered some prints from Etsy, ones that meant something to me.

Then I ordered 10 x 8 frames from Dunelm Mill which have a lovely mount in them giving them an expensive look, at only £3.99 each! When they arrived it turned out the actual frames were 10 x 8 so my lovely prints wouldn’t fit unless I took the mount out. So I decided to put the frames to another use.

The dark wood gave me inspiration to paint the small down stairs loo a warming dark muted colour. Husband thought I was mad but then he’s not the one who’s read hundreds of home decor magazines from cover to cover. And he’s a boy!
So, on a Sunday I rushed to Homebase and in a few hours had a lovely sultry downstairs loo and some frames, but no pictures.

I remembered some beautiful Paris inspired scrap booking papers in my craft stash and decided they’d be perfect. Paris is very special to me after spending a magical girly weekend there in November 2012.

Et, voila!

The papers are from the Paris Nights 12×12 pad from GCD Studios.
