Easy Peasy

My mother taught me to be practical.  However, I am not nearly as crafty as her.  I mean, she can even smock.  I don't know how to sew a straight line.

Well, with my mother's practical spirit paired with my mostly un-craftiness, I set out to decorate our fairly new townhouse for as cheap as possible.  Mostly, that just meant that we were sparse and that some of the cuter touches are just going to have to wait.

I did make two little wall things that are so so easy (after our trip to Ikea, of course, because all cool decorating ideas come from Ikea).

Presenting....
Easy Peasy Wall Art!

I am so proud.  I know you all are so much more crafty, but I'm just so excited to have made something!

All it took were some on-sale fabric & two canvasses with a lip on the back, like this:

I didn't even have to be that much of a perfectionist about the back because nobody sees it:

I'd take more lovely (and EASY, please) ideas if you have them!

  9. That's just beautiful! I am loving that and it doesn't look too hard...which means I could probably do it! At first I thought it was a painting! We're hoping to move in the next year or so and I'm hoping to do our master in white with black accents and red...something like this would be perfect! Great job, girl!
