Gallery Wall With Abstract Art

On Monday I told you guys that I would show you where I put the Waterlogue prints and I'm keeping that promise. I placed them in some Ikea Ribba frames and hung them on the wall.

In addition, I was busy painting over the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw two of the paintings already.
I had mentioned last week that I wanted more color in our dining room. I hung the painting back into our living room and decided to have a painting session with my daughter while being snowed in.
I would totally prefer to have one giant piece of canvas for that space like I do for Christmas with my tree canvas art (click HERE) but in my true "work with what you have" fashion, I decided to paint over my bloody Halloween canvases (click HERE to see what I'm talking about). I also had two more old canvases stashed away in my attic. I gathered all my acrylics and gold foil and this is what we came up with.

If you like the art then click HERE to see the full tutorial. This post was only meant for pretty pictures.

The one to the top right is my daughter's painting. She did awesome! And the rest are mine. Well except the sold out mouth print by "Made by Girl" that the hubby got me for Christmas.

Aren't the agate slices gorgeous that I bought from Caitlin at Desert Domicile? The colors are so pretty! I have to keep looking at them.
I already moved them to the living room because I'm afraid that they'd break with us moving them non-stop for dinner time.

And the best about the gallery wall is that I didn't have to spend any money because I had it all lying around the house. Hoarding in my attic does pay off sometimes, I tell ya.

Kate Spade Inspired Box Makeover

{Check out my Christmas house tour by clicking HERE}

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy box makeover with you that was inspired by my Kate Spade cellphone cover. And actually not much painting was involved. I promise no annoying taping off stripes.




You see, a while back I bought a couple of these velvet lined boxes at Goodwill for $2 each which originally were from Target. You can't see it in this photo but the box was actually pretty beat up.



I have also been looking for a way to use up all my leftover strips of wall grade vinyl that accumulate from my Etsy shop.  If you are wondering how this applies to you, well you can buy wall vinyl at most craft stores for cutters like the silhouette cameo. They come in sheets.

I wiped the box, primed it with some Kilz primer and then painted it with my favorite white semi gloss Rustoleum spray paint.



After it dried, all I had to do is cut the vinyl leftovers into strips and stick them onto the box. 



As simple as peel and stick. No taping off stripes and messy painting. I love doing this and when I'm sick of this look I can just peel the vinyl off and do something else. This would look awesome as a gift box, wouldn't it?

I had such a great time taking pictures of the box out in the snow. Can you tell?



You can actually spot the snow flakes and the wet spots on the box.












I love this simple makeover. You too?

So see you tomorrow?
I hope so ;)
