West Elm Art Hack

There are a lot of West Elm art hacks going on around the blogosphere so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try creating a little art for my dining room.  In case you haven't seen it, here's the art that inspired it all.  It's simple, but has a nice graphic feel to it.



I chose to go with a gray and white color scheme for my dining room since that works better in that room.  However, I really like the contrast of the black and white.  The great thing about abstract art is that you really can't go wrong.  I just brushed a few strokes across some poster board and that was it.


Framing it makes a huge difference.  If I had done this on a canvas or something without a frame, I would have carried the brush strokes all the way over the edge. 






I think it took me about 5 minutes to complete.  You can't beat that for quick and easy.
