Almost Free Artwork From Shipping Palettes

I think it’s going to be quite some time before I get tired of seeing home decor items made from reclaimed wood.  I just love the warm color and texture that it adds to a room, and the best part is that you can usually find some at no cost in the form of shipping palettes.  There are a million things you can do with them, including using the wood as a “canvas” for wall art.  Tara from Tara Being Tara demonstrates how simple it is to make inexpensive artwork.  Inspired by a piece from World Market, she created this for her own home, and it cost her a grand total of $2.99…

I’ve seen several DIY variations of the inspiration World Market artwork, all of them slightly different, and I like all of them! There’s just something about the simplicity of the colorful flowers that appeals to me.

To see more of Tara’s artwork, including how she put the palette “canvas” together, visit Tara Being Tara.
