home is where the heart is

I have these super awkward glass cupboards that divide my kitchen and living room. I am always trying to cover them because I have no choice but to actually use the cupboards so they can't just be filled with decorative goodness :/
As per usual my options are limited mostly to hanging paper... and while I don't love the way this looks as a room divider, I am really happy with the way my little spur of the moment art work turned out!

I originally planned to cover it with maps.  I printed out a bunch of random maps, but it just wasn't meshing well. (I can't find a big world map here to buy)
I decided to paint something and ended up with this! and I love it!
Its just water colors and honestly took about 30 minutes total. my fastest... anything yet.

then added a little banner in the spirit of the upcoming Independence Day celebrations. 
It is a cut up cereal box, painted, and drawn on with chalk.
