We recently purchased a new bedroom suite (sleigh bed). I love it. But I had the hardest time trying to find decor that I wanted to hang over the headboard.
Our room is painted a light teal green because the Comforter set is chocolate brown with a paisley print with that color.
Here is the finished room. You can see the finished prints hanging....love them!!!
Ok, back to the making of the prints...
I looked at several stores, Ross, Tj Maxx, Belks, etc........
couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.
So off to Goodwill I go.....
Found these two framed pics......not really liking the prints, but loved the frames.
and what a steal at $12.92 each
Then off to Hobby Lobby which is 2 stores down from Goodwill.
I found a poster that was the exact colors in our bedroom....
even better the posters were 50% off .
This one was 17.99, so I only paid $8.99.
I took the prints out of the frames and laid them side by side onto the poster.
They fit perfectly width wise, but I would lose a little off the top and bottom.
This is how I cut it. I would use the 2 middle sections.
This is how they look after painting the frames a dark chocolate brown to match the furniture and the prints put in.
Never, ever, ever....settle. Things can be taken apart, cut, painted, to suit your taste.
Experiment a little.....this whole project cost me a little under $35 for both framed pics.
As you can see from the first picture that they are pretty large and one would have cost me at least 3 times that amount.
Until later, DIY-ers........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
