make this: geometric bedroom art

We’re still moving along in the bedroom and the progress is becoming noticeable! Yay!! Our primary focus right now is getting art up on the walls and adding some style.

Today, I want to share this fun geometric art project that we completed last weekend. I’ve been loving all the geometric-ness that’s been popping up around Pinterest lately, and this was an easy DIY-able idea that I found on The Red Thread (a blog you should definitely get friendly with). And this thing certainly packs a punch!diy-geometric-bedroom-art-9

Now, in Lisa’s version,  lots of colors works amazingly because her room is largely white. We’ve got a lot going on already with those curtains we snagged at IKEA last year. They are powerful and kind of command the room, so I decided our version would stick within that color scheme: purples, gray, and white.

I also went a little larger. I picked up three foam boards from the dollar store (instead of two) and secured them together vertically. It takes up a lot more visual space this way. I’m thinking of flanking it with some “chill” art above the nightstands would balance out the strictness of the geometric pattern and just about complete this side of the room. diy-geometric-bedroom-art-12

It took about 2 hours and, because it’s all made on foam board, it was super easy to hang. I just used three velcro picture hanging strips (like these) at the top and used sticky tack to secure the bottom corners. Plus, knowing that what’s hanging over our heads at night is not super heavy let’s us sleep a little more peacefully, just in case it does come down. Which it won’t, but still.

What are your favorite DIY art projects? Do you like frames or canvases? Or made from something unexpected? Share below!!
