Sunburst art in the dining room

I've been on the lookout for a large piece of art for the dining room, but have not seen anything I've been excited about.  Then I saw this and this, and thought I would try making it.  

At first I tried freehanding it.  That didn't turn out well, but I figured out my mistake fairly quickly.

Then I got out a ruler, started making straight intersecting lines, off-centered slightly to the left.  I just used leftover paints from the garage.

Once I painted over the original mistake and penciled all the lines, it was a fairly quick and easy project.


  1. i LOVE it! the scale and colors- so you and so fun!

  2. I love this! I'm all about some DIY canvas art :)

  3. I love this! GREAT color! Your little tennis balls on your chairs are so fun. My grandmother had those exact chairs. I miss them. They were so comfortable.

  4. Amazing!

    I've been reading, but on my phone so haven't been able to comment. Just wanted to say hi!

  6. thanks everyone--its funny how the leftover paint in my garage matched the living room curtains, isn't it?
