This chic DIY wall art is as easy as it gets. Simply apply yellow, purple and pink paint to a plain white canvas in a random design. Prop the canvas up vertically, then spray liberally with water, allowing the paint to drip down. Once dry, apply gold or silver leaf to the surface using leaf adhesive and a small detail paintbrush and voila! You have a brand-new piece of custom artwork that you can hang as is or frame for a streamlined look.
