From Drab to Fab

While spending time with Enchantress 2 in Central Cali, we came across a garage sale that was closing down for the day. He said, "Take anything you want". Sweet! I am kickin' myself that I didn't take more. One of the things I acquired was this drab piece of art.

I really just liked the frame and had no idea what I was going to do with it. Free right?
Well one night I was thinking that my bedroom needed something else on the walls and a friend of mine who was moving had just given me a bunch of her craft supplies which included orange paint. So...I looked to my bed pillows,

and hibiscus arrangement for inspiration. (I acquired that sailboat painting from the garage sale as well...so fun!)

This was the result. From drab to fab!

And I really like it. I am not a painter by any means but I just figured if I messed it up it was free...right?  It really adds a pop of color that our white rental walls needed.
I think it now needs something to flank the sides. Hmmm?
