Helpful How-To: Wall Art for Less

If you read yesterday's post, then you are already ahead of yourself....

Or probably have a good idea of where today's post is going.

Remember my CRAFT-TASTROPHE from this weekend?

Well, it's going to be wall art.

To help stage the little man's room for when we put our house on the market next week.

And it cost me about $4.25.

All you need is 2 picture frames.  (Not pictured)

2 mats

And one of your favorite child hood books.

I got mine for 25 cents at Goodwill.

And as luck would have it, the inside cover happened to be perfect for the project I was working on.

The mats were white, as were the frames, and I wanted a little more color, so using some of the paint I had lying around, I painted the mats to match the colors in Little Man's room.

And once they were dry, I added in the pages from the books.

And viola!


What's this?

My mat and picture don't fit the frame?

Ok, ok.  So this project isn't done yet, but you can almost tell how it's going to come together, right???


And all that for less than $5. 

I say well worth it for Nursery Artwork!
