Pink butterflies and polka dots

In my urgency to get our house in order, I attempted a crafty project last weekend.  That is a big deal for this left brained lady.  Channeling my inner Peter Marie and Kammy, I ventured to the garage to find an old canvas that I didn't like anymore.

 Before



After

I used leftover purple paint from Madeline and Lydia's room to paint over the canvas.  Then I stuck on vinyl polka dots I had originally purchased for our last house but never got up.  Finally, I attached those cute paper mache butterflies, from Hobby Lobby for $1.50, with a little hot glue.  I think it'll look great in Anna's pink room.

It WILL look great! Way to go, left brained girl!!! Thanks for the shout out, too. Didn't it feel good to save all that money and make it yourself?? :)

Very Cute!! You'll never pass an ugly canvas or ugly framed print at a garage sale the same now...you'll want to buy it and re-do it. It's a fun hobby!
