I pretended to be a painter for this DIY project... cuz I needed to! I was really hoping for a super large art piece to put above our couch, but didn't know what or what colors or where I would find it... so I decided I'd paint my own. But large canvases are pretty expensive, so when I found this very odd but HUGE painting at Goodwill (half off!), I picked it up and remade it.
It was great to be able to pick the colors--although that was pretty hard, too. There's nothing else in the room to dictate the colors, so I could have picked anything! Aack, pressure! I did have the curtain fabric picked out, though (pics to come!)... but was also trying to make it less girly and more husband-friendly. I showed him some pictures of abstract art and pretty paintings, and he didn't like the really abstract ones; he liked the ones that had clear patterns or were clearly supposed to be something. So I did sort of a zigzag ikat-ey thing.
Here it is above our couch.
