Thanksgiving wall art from thrift store art print

Artwork 01.12.15
I normally wouldn't give this framed art a second glance, but the size and autumn colors were perfect for Thanksgiving in our dining room. After checking to be sure it didn't have more value than the $4 I paid, I added the words "give thanks" with a Sharpie. Now rather than sit in a pile of junk, it'll serve as a gentle reminder once a year in our dining room.

    Great idea! I have passed up lots of unattractive and faded prints like this before and never thought of this! So cheap you can toss it out after the holiday and not feel badly at all! Or send it back to the thrift shop!

    Wow...I see these unattractive "cheap hotel art" canvases all the time and have never given them a single thought. Now I see them entirely different! Thank you

    How totally "out of the box" clever you are. I look at everything with a "what else could I do with it" eye and never even considered that one. Your vingnette is so great.
