DIY Kitchen Art

Wow! Didn't know Etsy had so many amazing artists. I did a search for "kid's room decor and discovered 2 artists that really appeal to me. Kathy Jeffords from TheDreamyGiraffe and Renie Britenbucher. Both have a whimsical colorful style befitting the happy kind of aesthetic I envision for our new house.

Though I love color I can't imagine painting a room in loud primary hues. The way around that dichotomy is to use juicy punches of color to accessorize the room. And these two artists provide lots of that:

Since we're moving soon I don't have the $$ to purchase original art work. So I decided to make my own:

It's not as nice....but I like it. Mine is acrylic paint on a small canvas board purchased from Wal-Mart.

Join  us Saturdays at tatertotsandjello.com for the weekend wrap up party!


  1. Love this!! I am adding your painting to my idea file :)!

  2. Thanks a bunch. I'm trying to beef up my painting skills. Maybe I'll try my hand at original pieces in the future.

    I'd love to see what you come up with too. Please pop in and show off your stuff!
