Art: Generic to Custom

10 Aug

In an effort to try and ‘finish’ my living room, I wanted to introduce a mini-gallery wall surrounding the TV.  After taking inventory of the art in my house piled up and waiting to be hung, some made the cut.  To my surprise, most of the framed pieces we have are around the same size.  I wanted to play with sizes a bit, so I headed to HomeGoods (as usual) to scout accessories.  I absolutely love HG for most accessories, but their framed art can sometimes look cheap and generic.

When I found this lotus print, the colors called to me.  The plastic on plastic frame, though was just about as classy as Jersey Shore.

The print and frame was only $20, so I decided to play with it a bit.

By cutting the print into 3 pieces, I was able to create a playful triptych in exactly the scale that I was looking for.

I have a few finishing touches in order to really pull together the art on this wall, but I’m excited to show it to you next week.

Have an amazing weekend!

    great redo! It has much more visual interest this way rather than the long narrow frame! can’t wait to see finished product 🙂
