Cheap Art

After my bathroom's makeover, I needed some art for the walls. I have a horrible time finding art that I like. I scoured etsy, ebay, and my local stores. I had a mental picture of what I wanted, but I couldn't find it. When you can't find what you want, you either have to do without or make it yourself. Needless to say, I chose the later option.
I started off by doing a Google images search for common bathroom items. I limited my search to line drawings since I wanted simple pictures.
Then I went to Michael's. I picked out some 4"x6" and 5"x7" acrylic frames and cardstock. I printed out the images, framed them, and voila -

These pictures sit atop the wide ledge that runs around the wall in the bathroom. I love how simple they are. And I also love that I only spent $12.30 for 7 pictures - frames and all!


  1. Looky there at you! I love all your new pictures. You make me want to make something right now just so I can post it to my blog! Right now I need to be cleaning and packing (for OK--not moving, thank goodness!)though. :(

  2. How creative. So simple, yet I doubt I would have though of something like that.

  3. How perfect! I love it that you were able to do it yourself! I really like the simplicity of the pictures. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
