When we first moved into this house, 11 years ago, I was looking for a picture to hang in the kitchen. I couldn’t find anything that I like, at a price I was willing to pay.
I finally found a dish towel that I liked, so I took that to the local copy shop. I had the dish towel copied onto large paper. The lady thought I was a little weird at first, but she liked the result. It was only $2. or $3. for the copy.
I found the frame at Walmart, for under $10. I painted, yes painted, the inside mat as it didn’t match the picture. That’s the narrow burgundy strip around the picture. The frame had been black, so I sanded it down and painted it green. I then sanded it again to give it an aged looked. I used craft paint that I already had. So for under $15, I had a nice picture. A framed print can easily cost $30. or more, so I definitely saved money, while getting a picture that I loved.
I still have this picture hanging on my kitchen wall. I still love it!
