Say it with DIY Art

Just when I decided that I wanted to do my own striped art canvas (yes I’m still talking and not doing) like this one,

 or this one in a bedroom in Elle Decor,

I started reading all of this talk about creating your own abstract canvas or creating a dynamite grouping in a single evening like these canvases that Mrs. Blandings wrote about,

or making swell art out of red tickets,

 via Blue Bell Bazaar

or framing fabric or wallpaper like this,

or making your own abstract or your own modern masterpiece like this,

You can see how I got a little distracted.

After finding this suzani on Ebay for my friend Kristin who wants to frame one and hang it over her sofa, I told her why not just paint your own canvas, its cheaper, way more fun and all of the kids are doing it.

***Update*** One of our readers Christina emailed us and inquired about the yellow floral wallpaper in the Summer Thornton room. It is Kimura and it can be purchased at Walnut Wallpaper among other places.
