DIY: Wall Art

Decorating is in full swing at the new Uptown apartment! This past weekend included a very fun trip to Michael’s for some craft supplies. I was worried for my wallet, but luckily they had a great sale going on and we were able to get a bunch of things for the apartment for about $50. Plus I had a $25 gift card left over from my birthday (thanks Mom!) so all in all, not that expensive!

While in the store, we discovered these super cute unpainted wooden frames for about $7 each. BTW, The unpainted wood area of Michael’s is just a plethora of DIY projects waiting to happen – so many more projects will be born there!

Ok so here are the frames we purchased plus two smaller ones…

What we did next is the easiest thing in the world. We painted!

Each frame got it’s own color, and just one coat of paint. It only took about an hour for them to dry completely.

…then Voila! Instant wall art!  We’re really digging the empty frame look too, it’s kind of quirky, but I guess that’s just the kind of girls we are!
