Wall Art

With the computer desk finished the wall behind it was looking a little sparse.  I didn't have anything that would work so I created this piece of artwork to add a little color to the wall.  I have a few more pieces to add as well which is why it looks a little high.


For this project I took a scrap piece of wood that I already had and coated it with drywall mud.  I then took a piece of cardboard and notched it out to run down the length of the board.  Then to finish it I used a roller to go over top and smooth it out so there wasn't to many pokey pieces. 




Once the mud was dry I gave it a good coat of primer and the with the colors I chose started to paint and play with it until I got this as the finished result.

Great piece! I'm so impressed with your vision.
You could totally get away with telling your friends you paid thousands for it at an expensive gallery :)
