Thrifty Thoughts-Rose Painting

Thursday, time for Thrifty Thoughts!!! 

I have been wanting a painting to hang above my bed for quite some time now, 
I knew I wanted the painting to have cool tones and something unique....
I looked on multiple websites, I found a couple that I really loved,
 however I was NOT about to throw down $200-300 bucks on a painting.
SOOO I went to hobby lobby and picked out a canvas that I thought would fit above the bed. 
I picked one which cost me $20(with my 40% off coupon) and all the paint I already had previously 

The idea was to make it have a cross stitch effect with paint, incorporate cool tones, 
and make it something that looks inviting and not forced....

Finished product!!!!!
