Easy DIY art ideas

Our many blank walls have been driving me nuts. I had some white IKEA frames from our last house so I thought I’d get creative and fill up some of these empty spaces! I’m artistic in the way of being creative, but not in the way of skilled painting or drawing. So I’ve come up with couple of cheap DIY art ideas that anyone can do.

First up, is our living room. I didn’t photograph the process because I didn’t think I would actually like it, haha! I whipped it up in 45 minutes. I remember because I had a deadline of picking the boys up from school and was surprised I finished in time.

I simply cut a a roller in half to get the width I wanted, dipped it in some black acrylic paint and rolled it on the canvas. Easy peasy!

DIY modern art with bronze sconces and no electrical wiring

These are the sconces I bought. No electrical wiring and they turn on with a remote! I learned how to do it from Nesting with Grace. Her post is called magic light trick. Genius!

The next blank wall on my mind was the spot above our bed.

I simply printed off these letter-sized illustrations from the New York Public Library’s digital collection. There are free for personal use. And I just taped them right to the back of the frame!

Doesn’t get easier than that!
