Granted, I liked almost every display there, but there was something about this large print that I kept going back to. I considered it for my bedroom, but wasn't sure if it was too big, too wild? Luckily, I was there with some of my closest girlfriends who recognized my affection for the print and wouldn't let me leave without it. Suggestion: always go to Ikea with a group of fabulous friends, as much time as your head and budget can handle, and follow it with a trip to the mall and dinner at a restaurant afterward. You won't be disappointed.
I started by painting them gray (this paint was left over from the gray barn wood that I used for the string heart).
But that just barely qualifies as colorful, eh? So I broke out this very wonderful paper stack and started cutting away. I used a spray adhesive to attach the paper to the canvas and I had a happy little flower-like number at the end.
And, I like the juxtaposition between colors and patterns in the room.
