How-To Make Inexpensive yet Beautiful Wall Art

I have been looking for wall art to put above my bed for some time now. I've looked at mirrors, large framed pieces, and many other variations of wall art to no avail.

I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own art work! I found these ceiling medallions, which are used around light fixtures, for $14.99 at Lowe's. I liked their shape and thought that three of them in a series would look great above my bed.

In keeping with the light blue, navy, cream, and seafoam green color palette of my bedroom, I found some spare blue paint and used a sponge brush to paint each medallion.

It took about 30 minutes including dry time, and cost a total of $45.00. I think it really completes the space!
