Hi there! After sharing our kitchen progress yesterday (which is a bit of a challenge), I’m thrilled to share this cool and eclectic DIY wall art for our master bedroom! We are hitting week 3 of the $100 Room Makeover which means all the participants will be showing our room reveals next Wednesday. The first week I shared inspiration and shopping guide and last week room updates.
A huge thanks to Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry for organizing this fun month long challenge.
I really liked the idea of using decorative baskets similar to my inspiration board but wanted a little more modern take on them. Threshing baskets are very common in Japan and I found all of these for under $10!
I used watered down acrylic paint to “stain” each one a solid color.
The 100 Yen Store had some cute push pins and a faux succulent that adds a bit of fun interest to the basket collage. This DIY wall art really makes the room come to life! It’s like it was planned or something… 😉
To balance out the window and empty wall space, I brought in a $5 thrifted basket purchased in Okinawa last year and hung some brass bells that were found locally.
We also found a solution for the tv this week with a darling cabinet from a thrift store down the road. Here’s a little peek!
Isn’t it fabulous?
Our garden sill is coming together too. I’m just thrilled how this room is coming along!
Let’s review the to do list.
