Hello all, welcome to the weekend! I’m off to buy some primer and paint to begin on some of those thrift store finds I shared earlier in the week. Speaking of paint, I’m smitten with this oversized mural on canvas as a focal point behind the bed, or anywhere you envision large scale art. This serene version is a DIY project explained in detail at the link below.
