Adding Art to Our Living Room

My husband and I like to get one or two projects done on the weekend since our weekdays are spent working and wrangling the baby. I thought I would start posting some of these little DIY projects that we are tackling around the home.

This past weekend the goal was to hang some art in the living room. I wanted to make a trio of art above the couch. At first, I was going to just paint a giant canvas and have some DIY art, but blank canvases can get expensive! While we were out on a shopping trip, we found some beautiful, giant canvases at Burlington Coat Factory(!). The large canvas was only $40, and the two small canvases were $15 each.

 

 

Comparing these to my trip to Hobby Lobby, they were the same price as buying one giant blank canvas, not including all the art supplies.

Now for the hanging…

Instead of centering the paintings with each other, we decided to have them all be at the same level along the bottom. We hoped this would create a little visual interest.

Here is the before:

 

 

And after!

 

 

This is a bigger view to give you an idea of the space:

 

 

Here it is a little warmified:

 

 

And here is my husband modeling our work…haha!
