Lately though I've been drawn to the use of abstract artwork in traditional home decor (all images from my pinterest living room board)
And I am in love with the beauty by Kerry Steele on etsy. But at price tag of $1,550 I had to figure out a way to recreate the look for my price point….free.
Thanks to my hoarding tendencies I had the perfect 30x30 canvas sitting in the basement. After painting over the existing black & white flower image, I was left with a clean slate & I just went to town dripping, painting & splattering various shades of gray, taupe & blue onto the canvas.
And here is what I ended up with:

I think it turned out pretty decent. I'm still toying with the idea of adding gold leaf like one of the inspiration pictures above. And I am set on getting rid of the brown accent wall & probably painting the fireplace brick…it all reads too orange to me. Any thoughts? Are you a painted brick fan? Well I've gotta run…sick baby is crying…fingers crossed his fever goes away soon. Isn't it suppose to be summer!?!
