Naked Lady

How I saved money painting a naked lady.

Yup, you read that right!

We moved into our new home this year and I have slowly been decorating. Slowly, because I want the right things in the right places.

I came across this line art on Etsy that was eye catching while scrolling. After adding it to my cart and seeing the price I was hesitant to complete my purchase. “$80 for this!”, I thought. “I can paint that”. So I did.

I will admit that I have an elementary level stick man as my person when it comes to drawing with my kids. I can’t even draw that straight! So if I can do this, you absolutely can!

Here’s the original I mimicked. After choosing the bigger size and with shipping it was roughly $80!
Here’s my take at it! Canvas and paint are from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon!
See what I mean. Can’t even draw a straight line! Thankfully it’s not noticeable once it’s up.
Here is the finished project! For a small fraction of the price.

I love raw, real beauty. As a woman, it’s hard to accept your naked body with so many images of approval that you don’t meet. So with the painting I’m reminded to love the skin I’m in each time I get out of the bath or shower.

Plus, I love being naked. Just ask my husband.

I am considering adding gold flakes as stretch marks to the stomach area. Let me know in the comments if you think I should!

Hi 👋🏻 My name is Nicole and I love French press coffee without cream or sugar, French macarons (not macaroons) and rosemary cooked in just about everything. My husband and children make me a better woman and my two Boston terriers, Grace and Charlie, too! I love the way God’s Word comes to life when we live it. I’ve dedicated my life to learning how to walk with God daily through my marriage, motherhood and ministry. Follow my blog to see how I do it!
