Black & White abstract art-DIY

One of the things I love about blogging is the community of friends I have met on-line.  Everyday I am encouraged and inspired by so many talented ladies out there.  One of my daily reads is Interior Designer Kristin Jackson’s blog The Hunted Interior. She shared a DIY black & white brush stroke art piece inspired by artist Fraz Kline 

After seeing her piece I decided to tackle one myself.  And me being an impatient, instant gratification type of person I did not shop all my local thrift stores for a $5 bargain frame.  I chose the quick & less economical way- I purchased a new frame from Hobby Lobby- but it was on sale!  


The frame however, was black- but nothing a quick coat of spray paint can’t remedy.

I knew exactly where I wanted my piece to go.  I have this antique hutch, passed down from my husbands grandmother, in our dining room.  I have always struggled with what to put on top of it.  The ceilings are tall in my dining room and everything I put up there seems to feel out of place.
