Apartment Art

Today, I thought we would take a tour of some of the artwork I have put on my walls.  Since I got married last August, I have really enjoyed decorating my first home together with my husband.  Here are some of my decorative touches.  I hope they can help inspire you!

I found these three paintings from a thrift store, but they are originally from Pottery Barn Kids.  I thought they had a quirky charm.

This is the custom illustration I purchased from Nan Lawson.  Below, I hung a sweet little cross stitch that I found at Marshall's.  I'm a sucker for vintage cross-stitch and at $2, this seemed like an easy way to fake it.

Here is a cluster of paintings that I hung above the couch in the living room.  It showcases some of my own art as well as some of my favorite paintings.  I bought cheap frames at a thrift store and painted them all the same color. 

What artwork have you put in your own home?

  1. I was noticing the three paintings over the door on Monday night and thought they were so cool! Can't believe you found them at a thrift store!! I never thought about just buying cheap frames and painting them. I never would have guessed that you had done that for the ones over the couch. We really do need to hang out and be crafty so I can learn some of your tricks. :o)


Thanks for your comments! I love hearing from my readers :)
