Finally got the canvas finished and hung, now the room is complete!



The room started out a dull beige and really nothing in it.  I love it so much now, it's so relaxing!



I picked up 4 ready-made canvas and mixed and painted the base color.  Then I used a white paint pen to draw on the designs.  Easy and I'm so happy with how it turned out!  We have pretty high ceilings so I had really wanted something to fill the space.





More pics (and before shot) on my blog.

You have a great eye for color coordinating.  That purple is to die for!  Mind if I ask what the color is called and what brand? 

Those canvas paintings rock!  The whole room does!

Thanks everyone! There'll be no living with the hubby after this, ha- he keeps insisting the wall color was his find.  Smiley  I didn't originally think he'd go for that shade- he does insist that it isn't "purple" however so I've started calling it "eggplant" instead. This seems to make all the difference, lol.
