Since we aren't having the Wednesday Hodgepodge this week, and I am in the groove for a Wednesday blog post, I thought I would share my most recent project with you.
I wanted to create a little sitting area in my rather small master bedroom. There are times that I just want to sit there to read or watch TV while Hubby studies in the office. Besides, as I told Hubby, we sometimes just need a cozy place to have a serious conversation. He is not too happy about that idea, needless to say.
I found this really neat leopard print chair that goes with my furniture just about perfectly. I already had the throw pillow.
Once I got the furniture placed, I realized the little sconces that I had on that wall were entirely out of proportion for this grouping. That would never do!
So, what else but to paint a picture to tie it all together. This past Sunday afternoon, I set about accomplishing that task, and am pretty well pleased.
I love how the lamp light emphasizes the gold tones in the paint and casts shadows in all the right places.
A better close-up shot of some of the details. The canvas size is 24"x36".
I am very pleased with the overall affect and think I accomplished my goal for a nice intimate setting.
Do you have a sitting area in your bedroom? If so, do you use it? Have you thought about how you might create an area with items you already have on hand? Or, do you need to look for that just-right piece that pulls it all together?
