$$ Crafts

By now, its surely no secret I like a bargain. And decorating on a bargain makes me face-hurt-smile-happy. 

If you havent heard of Pinterest, get out from under the rock you are residing! Follow my boards---even though my pins are farther and fewer these days because I'm actually making them come to life! 

I pinned this idea a while back and knew FOR SURE I wanted it in the entry way. We have that crazy long wall that is currently just housing temporary object because I have a OCFOEWS (Obsessive Compulsive Fear of Empty Walls Syndrome) self diagnosed of course--and thought this would be the perfect addition to that wall. 

Truly one of my very first pins, I loved the look of this and was waiting for my butt to kick itself into gear to do it. I enjoy wood projects (have you seen my man room or entry way hall?!) but I needed a break from wood. So I went to my next bff---canvas. 

I picked up the 2 packs of canvas from Hob Lob on Friday, and snatched up a (drumroll....) $5.99 rubber mat from my other home (Ross). and decided to wing it. 

Oil Rubbed Bronze Krylon Paint and some Ivory Krylon Paint and a doormat similar to below 
helped turn some drab canvases,
 to some fab canvases. 

and then I changed my mind on where I wanted them....are you surprised much?

And just because I'm that CHEAP....You better believe I was going to find a purpose for the now Ivory mat.....

What a great addition that made to my powder room! 

Still cant decide what I want to do in there, but it's taking on a bird theme---left over wedding centerpieces (spray painted, of course!) HOLLA! This girl dont let nothin' go to waste! 

So there ya have it. Multi-functional DIY wall art. 

Now where else can I find a cool idea like this?

P.S. Have you noticed my blogging counterpart completely MIA lately? Yea me too. I tried to tell him, his fan base is dwindling.
