I blogged about the artwork around my home about 2 years ago! Can't believe it has been that long.
Lately, I've been thinking of taking up painting for myself, a hobby. I'd like to learn to paint. I think it would be fun!
Anyway- You can read the entire post here: PAINTED GIFTS
This is from that post:
It is a rendering of her Grampa's barn---they (he and Granny) had two, this one was at the bottom of the mountain. It's titled
"the Lower Barn"
Today, I had a few moments of time. I decided I wanted to do something to really make this painting pop! on the dining room wall...
So, I got out my DIY Chalk paint and painted the frame black; then rubbed it with a little minwax. Now it really stands out against the yellow wall. I love it! The painting had been a gift from my daughter years ago; and the paint and supplies, I already had on hand. So this little change up cost me nothing! Woot-woot!
I wish I were able to get a better picture of the two cows above it. I have no idea how old that painting is, or who painted it...It came from the same trunk that had the Yo-Yo quilt blocks in it a few weeks ago, they are now in my bedroom! I love opening that trunk and finding all sorts of things inside! :)
I'm adding this to Brenda's "Tweak it Tuesday" very first party!
Hope to see you there!
