The benefit of painting your own art is that when you get bored with it, painting over it isn't a big deal. And thankfully I have a husband who, after seeing me wrangle the painting off the wall and into the kitchen, and come scrounging for paints and a brush, says only, "Doing some painting?" As opposed to, "Do you think you should be doing that?" He's a keeper.
So is my new painting.
It only took me about 30 minutes and five paint colors (lilac, charcoal, navy, black, and white) to make that. Last time you saw it, it looked like this...
(The color of the sofa in real life is much closer to the "before" by the way).
And way back when I originally painted it...
Wow, that feels like a million years ago.
Moral of the story - grab a paintbrush. You'll get a whole new living room. Or at least a new painting.
