DIY Ballard Design art

Love, love, love this art piece from Ballard Designs- and they love it too, because they want $289 for it.

So you know me- “I can make that” attitude. I bought a vinyl Chandelier from Marshall’s, got me a 36 X 40 canvas from Michaels (used my 40% coupon) grabbed my paint box and brushes and went to work. I am NO artist people- but how hard can a few splashes and brush strokes be? Well I fretted and fussed over EVERY stroke, but I decided that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And I am LOVING my beauty!! I really wish my camera would take better pictures (or is it operator error?!?!) I looks much more exquisite in person.
