There are some big changes going on in our living room. You haven’t seen much of this room because I have never been totally happy with the results. Well, that is all about to change! We just finished painting, there are new drapes to hang and I have been looking at sofas and chairs. This process may take a little while to complete so I will show one change I have made.
I recently posted about the trumeau mirror I painted and the blue and white plates hung on each side. If you missed that post you can see it here. I really like the plates but I felt the room really needed some color.
The botanicals were found on-line at a royalty free site. I tweaked the pictures using Picasso so that the colors were more vibrant and the images were cropped so they would be larger. These were printed at home on textured photo paper that was purchased at a garage sale for 25 cents. I believe any good quality copy paper would work also. The matted frames were purchased on clearance at Target for $2.50 each.
The total project cost $10.25!
Now, if you like these prints you can copy the ones below for your own project. Just right click on the image and “save as” to your stored pictures. I enlarged my prints to 8×10 and printed without a border.
