Black and White - Easy Wall Art

I'm always looking for something to hang on my walls. The search to find something I like is daunting. I ran across a shop that had some pieces of wall art that were simply phrases written in white paint on boards that had been painted black. I loved the way it looked and reproduced it at home. My only expense was the canvas - $25! I already had the paint.

I chose a big canvas. I had a big blank wall. I love it because it's a little "quirky" with a touch of folk art. I used the same phrase as the one that I saw in the store.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger to a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. - Melody Beattie

I think it'd also be a real cute idea to print your family name, date established at the top, with your family members names and birthdays listed underneath.
- That being said, maybe that'll be my next project...


  1. That is kind of cool! I may have to try that!
