Retro Painted Flowers | The Postman’s Knock
Have you ever wanted to make your own painting but didn’t know where to start? Well this painting is the perfect place to start - it steps you through every single part of this piece, and it’s so easy that I reckon if you can hold a paintbrush you can recreate this! I love the retro flower look and you can use whatever colours you want. Paint it on paper, on a canvas or on your wall!

Wall Art Triangles | Mr Handsome Face
If you can stick tape and use a paintbrush, you can make this! It reminds me of a paint by numbers kit - choose your two favourite colours and then using them in three shades paint the corresponding triangles. Super easy to make - you could even make a triptych using the three colours across your pics in varying shades of light to dark (i.e. pink for your first pic using shades of light pink for the first row, middle pink for the middle row and dark pink for the last row)

Mural Painted Bathroom | Scathingly Brilliant

I’ve been going through my DIY folder and I came across this saved post of Kate’s amazing bathroom! Can you believe she did this on a whim on a Saturday night at 2AM?! I think what I like the most is the pink tones of the print. If you want to do something similar, Google ‘murals’. If you’re confident in hand drawing, sketch it out straight onto the wall. If you’re not, there are a couple of options.  The easiest and quickest option (if you have access to a projector) is to project the image straight onto the wall and trace with a pencil. If not, try printing your image large scale and do the old pencil rubbing on the back, trace over the front. If you have another suggestion of how to get a large image onto the wall, please add your idea! I’m very inspired now!

Pixelated Watercolour | All Things Paper
I’ve always loved the dreamy quality of watercolours. Some of my favourite artists use watercolours and I’ve always wanted to have a go but I’ve never been super artistic when it comes to painting. I love this project though as all I need to do is paint little squares!

Big Scrappy Painting | Alisa Burke
I have a habit of ripping out pictures from magazines and then thinking - what the hell am I going to do with these?! This is a great solution - if you have images that are the same kinds of colours and subjects, they would look great like this. The ‘wash’ of paint brings the pictures together. Of course if you have a ton of fabric scraps like Alisa did, you can do that too (um, I have a big pile of scraps as well. I swear I’m not a hoarder)

Super Easy, Super Quick, Low Cost Graphic Art | Curbly
I’m going to say it: buying things for baby girls is more fun than baby boys. Disagree with me if you will, but there are tons of amazing its and pieces of art for girls, but boys… it usually ends up being trucks or dinosaurs. Boring. If you’re wanting to decorate the room of the little boy in your life, I personally think you can’t go past these super cool art works! They’re modern and fun and customizable. Actually I might just make some of these for myself!

5 Uses For Milk Paint | Fresh Home Ideas
Milk paint is gorgeous, it gives a mellow, aged feel to it and is perfect for just about any interior style (though it works particularly well if you’re into the beachy or shabby chic look!) There are 5 tutorials here - how to paint a table, planters, wood floorboards, glass panels and my favourite, pavers! I would never have thought to paint pavers with whitewash. I would love to do my floorboards in whitewash, but I wouldn’t love to do all the prep work that comes with it!

Front Entry Makeover | In Between Laundry
Sorry to my renting followers, this is a painting post! Unless of course you have a really good landlord who will let you paint your house. Hallways are so hard to decorate. You could just leave them plain but that’s boring. I was thinking of painting the hallway but I wanted a bit more than just paint. This is perfect - focal points that can be easily changed up. Plus, I love that stencil! Of course it is made with a Silhouette. Seriously, please universe, please send me a Silhouette. Please.
