    What are the measurements of the frames and where are they from? LOVE

    Re watching this video, because it’s one of my favorites and also to give it the love it deserves 🖤



  6. Lisa Zara on January 24, 2021 at 5:17 pm

    Can you make a video on how you edit your video?



  7. Layla Ghaleb on January 24, 2021 at 5:20 pm

    Why is it that we think of DIYing art pieces as plagiarism but not the million of art decor pieces that get recreated and hacked from IKEA..etc. on Youtube? Just feels like double standards to get so heated on Megan because she re-created an art piece that was so expensive. Would it have been fine if it was a regular piece of furniture being DIYed?



  8. Anya on January 24, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    You might appreciate similar style of art:

    I don’t think you need to apologize. It not like you are selling this.



  13. Bernadette Kovalsick on January 24, 2021 at 5:24 pm

    Love the idea with the large frame to use cloth! Brilliant. Very creative “wreck”😍. Ok. On a personal note love your eyebrows. How and what did you use. Love your creativity. Just brilliant.



  14. Lilibeth Morales on January 24, 2021 at 5:25 pm

    rewatching to show appreciation 💕



  17. kayla on January 24, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    Thanks for my weekend activity off to ikea!



  18. Carmen Grauwels on January 24, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    I think its become "normal" that when we wanne do some diy cause of budget, love for diy ,etc… that when we go to pinterest to see inspo for what we wanne creat that we forget that artistmade that and make a living from that. And specialy these day’s when so many people are on these apps and repost & repost & more repost , that the original gets lost. Sometimes we know it & sometimes we forget it. So when you do figure out the best way to set it straight is go back or re-upload like you did and credit the original artists. Respect girl & indeed mistakes happens, we are humans 🤷🏻‍♀️ not robots



  19. Melody Sok on January 24, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    This is why we stan (besides your amazing DIYs) 💛

    where is her bracelet from?



  26. Kimberly Wood on January 24, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Such a respectful gesture, it’s so important how she apologized!🖤



  27. Ryan Rogers on January 24, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Very mature thing to do. Did something wrong, righted that wrong, learned a lesson, and moved on. I love that.



  28. Jules on January 24, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    What video is the office script from? I wanna know what it says



  29. JOLLIAS DZ on January 24, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    It’s so amazing 💓



  30. Michi Pasta on January 24, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    as an artist, I’m conflicted. I don’t mind the idea of recreating another artists work AS LONG AS YOU GIVE CREDIT, DONT PROFIT FROM IT AND DONT TRY TO PASS IT OFF AS YOUR OWN. I don’t care that you copied for your own decor but you also technically profitted from copying their work since you made the video? Idk, it’s weird territory and I don’t blame you for being unaware. Regardless, I’m glad you acknowledged it, cited the artists and chose to purchase their work. It is still your own home tho so you can leave your own ones up since you’ve done your part at this point (but I feel as though we’re in grey territory here and I’m interested to hear other perspectives).



  31. Nijia Johnson on January 24, 2021 at 5:42 pm

    To me it’s not that big of a deal you weren’t selling the painting’s like others do be are so bored now a days they have to pick on YouTubers



  32. sarcasmpersuasion on January 24, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    So as an artist, as much as the apology is great, I’m hoping you also compensated them for their work in some fashion because "exposure" is not a legitimate way to pay the bills. Artists are regularly asked to make art to "get themselves in front of more people," for free, and you’re correct in that this would be normalizing that people can rip other people off. You’re not just paying for a piece of art: you’re paying for the concept, the execution, the supplies, as well as the reproduction that a lot of artists do by hand.
    Honestly, I wish you had made a video discussing what you learned from the first uploaded video vs. adding in the apology at the beginning and continuing to profit off of these artists’ work. Although, if you’ve discussed it somewhere else than YouTube, I’d love a link to that and to hear your opinion.

    I WISH I WAS MATILDA!



  40. Cute Clay Crafts on January 24, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    I am going to start this off by saying that as an artist, I really appreciate Megan’s gesture. Plagiarism is a serious problem in the art community that many sadly turn a blind eye to. With that said, do I think that what you did actually qualifies as plagiarism? Not entirely. You copied someone’s idea yes, however—

    1. You didn’t try to take credit for their ideas
    2. You didn’t try to resell their work (you recreated their work for your own personal use)
    3. You used their ideas but not the pieces themselves (you painted them by hand, you didn’t print their original art)

    I think you messed up by not mentioning/acknowledging the original artists but lets be real, half the stuff on Pinterest isn’t posted by the artists who create them (and not all pins source the original artists either) so it’s not always easy to give credit where it’s due. I am really glad though that you were able to track them down! Their work is beautiful and they deserve the recognition ♡



  41. Edditeddy Edditeddy on January 24, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    You should go on team edge



  42. Sydney Savage on January 24, 2021 at 5:57 pm

    I HAVE to know where you got the foam beams! And are they removable?



  43. Dannshynne Galang on January 24, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    I wish I was Matilda



  44. K A on January 24, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    I’m an artist and I am mad at myself for never thinking of painting on fabric and framing it! Love love love your adorable vibes and I’m so sorry you got heat on the pinterest stuff. I know how easy it is to forget there’s actual people behind the stuff you see pinned. Well done on using your platform to uplift these artists!



  45. Autumn Love on January 24, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    Love the art….glad you admitted your mistake and gave credit where it was due. I wish I was matilda!



  46. LifeOnMarz on January 24, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    Thank you for apologizing. I was feeling pretty put off by your last video, but this feels like a genuine apology and that’s appreciated.



  47. marissa hughes on January 24, 2021 at 6:04 pm

    In the beginning you mention the script that you framed from “the office” please tell me where u got it…



  48. Rman Nayr on January 24, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    WOW THAT ART!!!!!!!
