A DIY Color Field Inspired Painting

The New Domestic

We've already spent a some time this week discussing how to make a statement on your floor (here and here), but what if your wall is in need of some pizazz? And perhaps it should be inexpensive pizazz that you can do yourself without much artistic training? Well, it's your lucky day because we have the perfect DIY project for you!Nerissa and Peter of The New Domestic (great nesting blog by the way...check it out!) created this large scale painting to fill a wall in their dining room. Inspired by color field paintings, they mocked up a version in Illustrator to get a sense of what color combination to use (if you don't have Illustrator, this step could easily be done with good ol' paper and crayons). Then, using some painters tape and acrylic paint, they finished this statement piece in a couple of hours. What a great afternoon project that creates huge impact in a space!
