I have been on a mission for the past couple of days. My mission has been to get some "cheap" art up on my walls. What cheaper art is there then DIY art? I have made it my goal to finish up some projects around the house too. Everything house wise just went completely off the radar this summer/early fall. This weekend I added my special touch to the bathroom, particularly the space over the toilet. This is what I came up with.
I had the metal tray but was not super happy with the original brown color so my husband spray painted it silver for me. I bought the canvas, candles and little glass bottle from the dollar store ($4) and the plant came from Walmart. I painted the canvas myself and dug up some old driftwood and shells I had kicking around. I love incorporating elements of nature into my decor. Not to shabby for $8.
This is the before. The poor empty space was just begging for attention since we re-painted the bathroom a while ago.
This is the artwork I purchased a year ago on the adjacent wall. I found it on Etsy, AldairArt, which I love. The company is out of BC and was extremely helpful and professional. I bought the prints and than framed them myself.
I have also been working on some other art projects that I will share with you later on in the week.

Have a happy Monday!


  1. I'm loving your DIY deco!! How do you make the paintings so striking, professional and artistic? I love people that decorate using their own craft. New follower (on Twitter too ;)) xx

    1. Thanks, I try... and I also like to save money (wink). My painting is my no means perfect, what I did though was primed the canvas, than I sketch it out with pencil and took my time and carefully traced over it with paint. I did a couple of other paintings (different style) that I will share later in the week, so stay tuned. Thanks for following me (that sounds weird) I am still new to the twitter world so bare with me. Thanks so much for your comment. XX
