DIY Paint Chip Art

Hello you! How was your weekend? Mine was excellent. It was great to finally enjoy a sunny day out with my husband. It was refreshing...

I guess the beautiful weekend inspired me to make a colorful DIY wall art. I didn't spend more than 30 minutes doing my "art." All I had to do was to cut up small swatches from Martha Stewart paint pallete booklets, rearrange and glue them over white paper. Then I framed it!

The price of my project was basically what I paid for the frame alone ($12 at Home Goods).



Now I have another piece for the gallery wall in my home office which is still "under construction." ;-)


This project was fun, easy, affordable, and nice.  :-) What do you think?

P.S.: Have you noticed I changed the header of my blog? Hope you like it! :-)

As always thank you so much for stopping by.
