Ever since we painted our living and dining rooms a light gray, I’ve been trying to warm them up with pops of color. Within a week after painting, we couldn’t stand it anymore and picked up this piece from Garden Ridge.
Ben’s FAVORITE thing to do is hold up stuff in stores for me to take pics for my blog – seriously, he has a problem. We went a little overboard with color and didn’t take into account whether this fit in with our style or the rest of our decor.
Here’s a shot of what it looks like on the wall. It definitely stands out, but not so much in a good way. I’ve always second-guessed this piece of art. Then yesterday I was browsing Hobby Lobby for a fall wreath project and spotted a poster print I liked. It reminded me that I had a black wood poster frame at home in a closet.
Dear Tom Petty, I love your music, but have not found a way to incorporate your awesome movie poster into my decor. Your Fan Always, Monica. That being said, I picked up the poster at HL for 50% off and brought it home to test the waters.
I’ve seen this as a stretched canvas print at Bed Bath & Beyond for $100, but I scored it for $18 since I already had the frame at home. It’s called Blossom Melody by artist L. Carson and I love how the colors blend together.
Am I allowed to frame a poster for art as an adult? I’m not sure. I like it much better than the flaming red trees, but it’s still on a 60-day probation period before we give it any vacation days or anything.
I’d really like to get some opinions on the new art – I promise you won’t hurt my (or Tom Petty’s) feelings. What are your thoughts on canvas prints without frames? Anyone else out there a poster rebel even into adulthood?
