Fall Great Room Part Two and Easy DIY Art

9.23.2016

Yesterday I shared my great room dressed for fall as part of a French country fall tour with twelve fabulously talented bloggers and today I'm sharing the other side of the room with my new easy DIY art.



This framed art was so super easy to create and the only thing I paid for was the print from here. I knew that the French Oak botanical was perfect for my home.

I grabbed one of my framed prints, that I put together years ago, from my stash and got to work. You can find these frames at Hobby Lobby and they are especially cheap when they are 50% off. I also bought a ready made mat and then just took the back off and placed my new print in and voila, I have a fall picture.

The reflection of my palladium window is in this shot. I like that the print was aged. 

I added a throw to the tray under the sideboard for Mr. Savvy to grab when he gets cold which seems to be quite often.

A vintage demijohn and some collected wooden boxes round out the vignette.



Here is a side by side to show how the leaning art fills in a void.

I hope I gave you an idea for creating a new art piece for very little time and money.

Now, be sure to click on my friends' posts below for more French country fall inspiration!

Have a fabulous fall weekend!

  2. That's really perfect for that spot.
    It is very frustrating here that precut mats are impossible to find. I brought a drawing from my parents' house, without the frame since it was too big, and I cannot find a mat.

  8. I love art displayed in this way, it doesn't have to be hung on a wall, this gives a slightly modern twist to any piece whether it is vintage or contemprorary.
