Our favorite vacation by far was our honeymoon cruise to Alaska. I just had a point-and-shoot camera at the time, but I was able to take some great photos. It’s easy to take stunning pictures in a beautiful place like that.
I’m a fan of landscapes and photos as wall art, so I decided to order some prints of my favorite scenes. I selected 5×7 prints and got them for about $0.60 each. Then, I went to the dollar store and chose matching frames.
I didn’t trust my eye to choose mismatching frames to create an eclectic look, so I figured some identical frames would work best.
It’s less than $10 for a little photo collage that adds some interest to our half bath.
I do have a fifth frame, but I haven’t chosen a photo for that yet. Working on that.
On the wall behind the commode, I have a 11×14 photo. I originally purchased a $1 frame for it, but it looked terrible. The photo was rumpled-looking in it, and it had no matting. So, I picked up this frame with mat from Target for $15. I could have probably found something at a thrift store for less, but I’m impatient these days.
Just goes to show that sometimes it’s ok to be really cheap in home decor, and sometimes it just looks…cheap.
I could keep up the search at thrift stores (which I haven’t gone to in awhile — I don’t have much available time for that) or pay a little more and call it good.
