Big Wall to fill, very low budget to fill it, and no artistic skill of my own. I LOVE Ikea's Ribba Frames, and for two huge frames the Price was reasonable ($35 each). So next I just had to figure out what to put in them.
I wanted something very simple, something that didn't scream LOOK AT ME!!! But something that said "Here I am aren't I pretty" hehe Nothing with too much color, nothing that clashed with the rest of the
My first thought was to take a couple of photos, blow them up and frame them, but . . . our local photo lab wanted $60 a picture. Which would bring each piece up to $95 plus tax. That's over $200 for dining room art.
So I turned my attention to Wall Decals!
I found this one at Target it was $12.99 and it was the perfect size to fit in the frames with the mats.
I took the wall decal cut it into two parts one side is 2/3rds and the other is 1/3.
Then I bought two sheets of poster board, at 89cents each.
Peeled the decal off, stuck it to the poster board and for less the $8.50 each we have art for the dining room.
Here's the close up:
I'm hoping to find some accent dishes for our dining room reveal so assuming the shopping gods are smiling on me this weekend, we should have a dining room reveal next week :)
And tomorrow a twist on our Flowers on Friday, we're going to do House Plants from around The Manor. A reader asked which plants we have hanging around here and I can't wait to share :)
