How do you make a white wall happy? We love a good accent wall, but what if you aren't allowed to paint your rental, or if you simply can't choose just one color? Here's a paint project for the white-walled color lovers among us, a project so easy that it's hard to believe the sophisticated result.

How To Make Easy Abstract Art
Picture wire and wall hooks
Four blank canvases (Maxwell got stretched and primed canvases from the local art supply store)
Four Glidden paint colors (Maxwell used Sexy Pink, Lime Sorbet, Red Grapefruit and Sunbeam)
Mini paint rollers and covers (Maxwell used mini foam rollers, which were small enough to paint around the edges)
Paint trays and mixers
Maxwell's Tip: Attach picture wire to the back of your canvases before you start painting.
Step 1: Set up your workspace with a dropcloth or newspaper to protect your floors.
