DIY: Free Wall Art

First off, let's start with my oops, for posting about that fabulous snack. I'd forgotten I'd already posted about it here. Sorry guys!

But on to more interesting stuff...thanks to Pinterest (and specifically, one of my fav blogs, called How About Orange,) I was inspired to make this little beauty. Artwork from paint chips. The best part, other than it costing zero buckaroos, was me standing among the paint swatches holding them up to different light sources for about 45 minutes. (Someone must have thought I was a designer or something!) These are Glidden paint swatches.

I used an old frame from Target that I had, the frame itself, I spray painted Heirloom White last summer, cut up my paint chips (that took a little while) and put it all together...

The colors were taken from our bedroom and I threw in the red for some pop. All I used was a pair of scissors, a pen and ruler and a glue stick! A nice little craft project with a nice price too. Free works for me every single time!
