Pictures On A Budget & A Freebie 8x10

Monday, October 19, 2009

One way to decorate your home on a budget is to hit up your local thrift stores. I'm a sucker for used! Take these pictures below for example. Cute, but not my style! The frames were in perfect condition and the glass too. I knew I could find something to do with them!


Ahh! Much better! So nice in the bathroom! And doing such a wonderful job marking our spots.

I spray painted the frames black, separated the 2 layers of matting, threw out the smaller one and spray painted the larger one white. (Be sure to use matte/flat paint when painting the matting or it will look wet once in the frame and pressed up against the glass.) I had the His and Hers pictures laying around. (One of those things that I liked but didn't know when or where I would use them.) And now I have some neat pictures that I love!

I had another wall that needed a picture too so I created one to match. If you like it feel free to click on it below to enlarge, then right click on it and save it to your computer. Send it to your local photo lab and have them print it in an 8x10 or smaller.
