I decided to use some of my left over mouldings from a previous project and put them to good use. First, I measured what I wanted on the wall. Then I just simply nailed in the moudlings into a rectangle. Then I painted the inside of it white (using some left over paint).
And that's what we got! Next was also easy & FREE. I had 3 left over frames from my previous wall paper art project that use to hang over our couch and decided to use those. I printed 3 FREE printables from Sprik Space and slipped them right in to my frames (I have used her free printables before, seen here). I had some left over ribbon from my scrap booking so I decided to attach some simple black ribbon to the back and give it the illusion of it hanging from some door knobs. That's right, I said door knobs. This is where the only cost came in. I went to Hobbs Lobbs and bought three door knobs. Hobbs Lobbs has TONS of different knobs ranging in all different prices. Mine were $2.99 a piece totaling: $9.00!
Here is the final product:
All I did was nail/screw the door knobs into the wall and the photos are actually hanging on nails. The ribbon is just "resting" on the knobs. :)
I'm in love! It just makes the wall look so yummy!! Here is a view from the front door:
Umm, please excuse my son's blocks on the floor.... So you can see that you will notice it as soon as you walk in.
Ta-Da!!! Here is the total cost break down:
- Moulding - Free (left over)
- White paint - Free (also left over)
- Frames and prints - Free!
- 3 Door knobs - $9.00
Thanks again for reading! :)
