Kelly Wearstler-inspired DIY Art

So remember when I told you that I was going to have my little man do an abstract painting for me – inspired by Kelly Wearstler? Well, we got some free time a couple weekends ago, and he got to work! Of course, he decided it was necessary to strip down to his undies to do it. Who am I to judge an artist on his process?

First, we covered an old painting I had with acryllic white paint. It took about four coats to get it done, but he was more than happy to help out. Then I just took plain, black acryllic paint and let him have at it. He loved making what he called the “twirly whirlies like the wind and zig zags.”

He was very proud of himself when it was all done. I have to say I am too. I’m in love with it.

I also got my iKea rug in that I told you about a few weeks ago! I’m so excited! It’s perfect for that space.

Now I just need to get my desk decorated, the painting on the wall, and the office is pretty much done. I’ll show the final, final late this month when I have the time to take really good photos of everything.
