Sometimes you find some cheap art at a thrift store or a garage sale. It’s alright, but it’s not awesome. Here is what a little bit of paint and a few glasses of wine can do. I got this weird old duck painting at a garage sale for $4. My boyfriend thought I overpaid. . .
You can take a cute, but ho-hum duck and make it into a bright statement piece.
I painted the frame black with some paint that I had on hand. And I went in with the bright blue and some other vibrant colors to liven it up. I just used acrylic paints.
Also, I’ve decided to just accept the fact that my photography skills aren’t great and post the pictures of my projects, as is. If I keep waiting until I get good at photography or have the time to stage perfect photos, I will never post on the blog. (After sitting in front of a computer for 10 or 11 hours a day at work, I can hardly bring myself to open my laptop on the weekends, let alone during the week; so I find I do all these DIY projects but cannot bring myself to share them since it requires sitting at the computer.)
Anyway, I hope you still like my abbreviated posts and real life quick phone photography.
Go find some cheap art and make it awesome.
