Formal Living Room
A tired, outdated living room gets a formal but fresh new look.

To honor Carlton's love of boats, Lawren and Simone create a unique piece of artwork just for him. To make your own string art, arrange nails 1/4 inch apart on a piece of wood to resemble the outline of a boat. Tie one end of the yarn around the top nail in the mast and wind it around the outside nail of the sail. Wrap the yarn back around the top nail, and then down to second one in the sail. Repeat this pattern around each sail nail, and then move down to the second (then third, fourth, etc.) nail in the mast and continue the process. Finish by wrapping the opposite sail and remaining boat pieces using the same technique.
