Seasonal Decor for less than $10

Last Fall, I had a large piece of "art" in my living room that I fell in love with @ Kirkland's a few years ago. Since I purchased it, the walls went from a light khaki to an olive-ish color called Filoli Yew. When I changed out the paint color and bought new furniture, I no longer loved the artwork as much. One day, I decided that I wanted to take it down and replace it with a wall of botanical prints. But, this was fall and I was trying to budget for the holidays.
So, I decided to try a small project on a smaller budget. I bought some standard wooden frames from the Dollar Tree. I bought six.

I brought them home and decided to spray paint them silver with paint I already had.

Then I looked on the net for vintage prints. I found everything I needed at VintagePrintable.com

Fast forward a few seasons...and I am now in the third season of still using my $6 frames. I plan to add another row and keep meaning to put mats in each frame.

This season, I added a personalized touch that I created in dear ol' Photoshop!

Hi, Kristy! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog earlier this evening. I really appreciate it! I see that you live in SW Georgia. I'm not really sure about the logistics of the state, but I have visited beautiful Savannah, Tybee Island, and Augusta. My husband and I are headed to the Atlanta area next week. He's considering practicing at a pain management clinic there. I think he has had it with these unyielding Kansas City winters! Again, thank you so much for stopping in and leaving such a nice comment. Have a wonderful, warm week!
