Welcome to this week’s DIY Summer School challenge. As you may recall, every two weeks I team up with my DIY Summer School crew (designPOST Interiors, Dimples & Tangles, Thou Swell, Charming in Charlotte, Lindsey Brooke Design, Claire Brody Designs, and Avery Street Design) to bring you a fun challenge and a link up party.
Today our challenge was to DIY a project with items found in the craft store! I was out of town the better part of the last two weeks (or rather, the last six weeks) and unfortunately didn’t get a chance to whip up a new project. So instead, I thought I would share something that fit the theme that I made nearly a year ago: DIY abstract art using craft paint. I’ve actually used this technique on a number of pieces (office art, entryway art, inspiration board art, and more) but the one that is most popular on Pinterest is the DIY Abstract Art I made last September for our entryway (the piece has since been moved closer to our staircase to make room for my Lindsay Letters canvas). It honestly only took me 30 minutes and I absolutely love the end result!
The colors tend to get washed out in the wider-angle room shots, but they are so saturated and beautiful in real life (much closer to the first two close-up images)! Be sure to check out the entire DIY Abstract Art Tutorial to try your own. I know it may look challenging, but I promise – you really can’t mess it up! If you’re interested in adding your own (easy) custom frame, be sure to check out this post as well.

This summer has gone insanely fast. We only have two more sessions of DIY Summer School, so be sure to check back:
Now it’s your turn! Link up any of your projects you made using items found in the craft store:
