The walls in Harrison's (and baby's) room have been seriously lacking for the YEAR we have been in this house. I did a small gallery wall at one point, and there are some book ledges, but one of the walls has been totally blank and lifeless. I was recently perusing the overpriced art at Land of Nod and saw this "First Down Framed Art". I'm sorry, but $200 for 2 16"x16" pieces of art? Not happening in this house. I liked the idea of the football field though, so I decided to whip up my own. I happened to have 2 16"x20" flat canvases (not the kind with the wood frame behind, but the kind that are about 2mm thick) laying around so I sat down one day and painted them.
I purposely did it to look a little rugged/sloppy and I think they turned out pretty decent. I wanted to frame them a la Young House Love - so I grabbed some 1x2s from Home Depot, and followed John's tutorial. I decided to miter my corners since I like making things harder on myself - but it all came together today and I definitely like the added color and warmth they bring to his room.
I have just a few more random ideas for their room and then we should be DONE... and then I'm sure I'll want to change things again. :)
