DIY Fun!
Man its been a while! My summer has consisted of lazy days at home and in the park, working day and overnight shifts, walks with Chili Palmer, Brooklyn flea markets, watching movies, obsessing over the Twilight saga, homework, and home improvements.

  • How to decorate a canvas. Wall Art - Step 1
    Step 1

    Over the past months, I have made a couple trips to IKEA for a little home shopping. I bought three DIY 19 x 19″ wood frames for $4.99, a new duvet cover, some pillows, and a few other random items.

    So the idea was to make inexpensive wall art to hang over my couch, by taking the three frames and covering them with different pattern fabrics. I made three separate trips to Ikea with no luck at finding three different patterns that I liked. FINALLY last Saturday I had pattern success, Ikea stocked up the fabric section and I was able to find the patterns I liked. I bought two patterns at $7.99 a yard and the third was $5.99 a yard. When I got home Saturday night, I spent over an hour putting together the 3 frames. I spent all Sunday afternoon cutting, ironing, stretching, hammering, bleeding, and hanging my new wall art.

    I absolutely love the results and I love that I paid only $37 for everything.
