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.
It’s not a masterpiece, but it does help fill in my gallery wall. And I think the duck is cute. You likely remember that I have a seriously love of bird art. (Here and here.)
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.
I love both posts.
