New Art In The Living Room

So since everything doesn't stay in one spot for long around here....

I rearranged the living room and the bedroom about a month ago. Furniture was swapped around, leaving a blank hole behind the piano.


The piece of art looks so nice hanging there.

 I did forget to remove those empty frames. Oops! They were left over from my frame gallery wall on the opposite side of the living room {that has been removed}. 

Where did I get it? 

My imagination and my hubby!!

I asked if we could use boards that we got from our neighbor {yup still have a few left!!}

I have some of this left:

And of course this:

I knew I wanted a design on it, something leafy...I attempted free handing it...and well, it was so bad that I didn't even take a picture of it. {the kind of bad that your hubby just looks at it while wondering how did leaves end up looking like pillows on sticks}

My fireplace screen was begging to be painted-


{yup..that's a blue candle in there!}

Can you guess what I did?

I placed the fireplace screen over the center of the boards and lightly painted! 
Super easy...and it looks a whole lot better than half deflated pillows on sticks, haha!!

Can't get much better than the cost either!! 


gotta love those kinda things!

As soon as I get a couple more things done {big news..huh!?} I'll show you how the living room is shaping up!! 

Off to take care of this little beauty..She's been complaining of a 'head-ick' {translation: headache}

Linking up to {links will work as they become available!}

Happy Tuesday!
