Friday Finds: On the Wall

Summer is a great time to get around to all those DIY projects that you’ve been putting off. The warm, dry weather provides the perfect opportunity to drag out your old furniture, and give it a beating or a new coat of paint. And if you’re ambitious enough to tear down a wall or two, it’s better to do it when there’s little chance of rain. Renovations are also a great time to make your space more green, like switching to insulated windows or sustainable heating sources.

Of course, we don’t all have the funds, or the time, to do a big Mike Holmes job. But you can still freshen up your home or office, update your look, or cover up some building blemishes in a snap. A new slip cover for the sofa or a picture on the wall can make all the difference.

Etsy is a great place to shop when you want to make a change in your home décor, and there are plenty of great artists to choose from. The Oh Canada Team is home to some fantastic fine art and photography pieces that you just might love!
