Bedroom Art Shopping

By The Ugly Duckling House on Feb 07, 2012
My master bedroom could really use some artwork.

I have one wall full of windows, one half-covered by the bed, and another one that is completely bare.  I've been considering for a while to make a gallery wall for this room too (in addition to the one I plan for the hallway), but I have been thinking lately that the area above the bed is the most in need of something special.

When I saw the below photo on Pinterest, I realized that a large piece of art might really look great above the bed.  The bedroom simply needs  more color.

Here are just a few of the canvases that have caught my eye:

Of course, I'm thinking of trying my own hand at it rather than buying a piece of art.  With a 50% off coupon for Hobby Lobby (like they have just about every other week), I'm thinking I could get this accomplished for under $30 (which beats most of the price tags you'll see at the above links).  I haven't even decided on style (modern?) or color (yellow?) yet, but what I know for sure is that it has to be big.  Has any art caught your attention lately?  Feel free to share.

Psst:  Yesterday's post launched later than planned, but it was also about finding inspiration.  If you need to catch up, see that post here.
