So excited to share my latest home project with you!
Electrical panels are not exactly what I want to be looking at from the couch, so I quickly got to thinking about options for covering them up.
We thought about putting in something like a large armoire or shelving to cover them up, but then they wouldn't be easily accessible in case of an emergency.
Then I had the idea of buying artwork large enough to cover the panels, but I couldn't find anything I was crazy about in the stores, and for artwork that size, the price tag was definitely an issue anyway.
So what does anyone do when they need an idea for a design dilemma? Why, head to Pinterest, of course. That's when I found this tutorial and came up with a plan for something that would be practical, yet beautiful, and meaningful to us, too.
Here's the solution I came up with...
I wanted to paint a quote that was meaningful to both our family and our new neighborhood. Marc and I thought this sentence from MLK's "I have a dream" speech couldn't be more fitting and perfect.
"When M.L.K.J. was alive, white people and black people were not together. ML said 'I have a dream that little black boys and little white girls will be hand in hand as sisters and brothers.' That's how me and Jameson became sister and brother."
Ha ha! Love it!
So cheap (especially using a 1/2 off coupon on the canvas).
So beautiful. (I'm proud of myself! I made that!)
And so meaningful to our family.
It was so easy, maybe I'll think about doing another one upstairs...
Now I absolutely love my view from the couch!
