I’ve been trying to put together a cohesive and colorful look to the shared bedroom of my youngest son and daughter. After looking at rugs, and deciding I didn’t want to invest the money right now, I brought one up from the basement play area instead.
So I needed some more primary colored artwork without spending much. Here is what I came up with.
First, I painted a frame which I already had lying around in the basement, white. Then, since I had purchased a couple of colorful pillowcases, I decided to frame one, and hang it up.
|Sorry, it’s hard to get a good picture with the glare from the glass.|
I like how it pulls out some of the colors from the rug without being to busy.
I was poking around in the office supplies section at Big Lots, and found a colorful folder with the chevron pattern on it, and decided to turn it into artwork as well.
and painted it white, and then simply framed the folder.
It contains the same red, green and gold as the rug.
The room is really coming together and starting to look warm, colorful and inviting. All I have left to do is organize the toys and shelves, and switch out some of the bins, and hopefully I’ll be ready soon to show the room all done!
