Book Review: DIY Art at Home

I'm not planning to review books regularly but this one is too fabulous not to blog about.  You know I am a huge fan of DIY art - just check out my DIY Projects page for proof.  DIY Art at Home: 28 Projects for Chic Décor on the Cheap (which can be purchased on Amazon or borrowed from your library) is a fantastic guide for DIY wall décor.  I used the project photos for inspiration but for beginners, or even kids, there are fantastic step-by-step instructions and even a whole bunch of full size templates.  

Pardon my low-tech "scanning" of the images

Fabulous styling, right?

And look at the step by step instructions!


  1. I love the Subtle Shades one. I may have to buy that book myself. Like you, I normally find inspiration in books and magazines, but as I get older, I'm getting lazier. Templates don't sound half bad. :)

  2. Love these ideas! I am always in search for new art around the house. Happy Wednesday! Carrie

  3. I love this! What a great idea. I just finished painting a mug for my dad's birthday so I'm in the painting mood. This is great inspiration!


  4. Oooh, I love the subtle shades idea! So fun for any room. I would love to paint an ombre dresser, too!


You've made my day - I love hearing from you! I approve comments only to keep out the spam, so don't worry if your comment doesn't pop up right away.
