Have a small wall space (this wall space is 22" wide) and want to bring a cute accent on a budget. This is what I used.
A wall gallery of budget frames. Three were $1 from Goodwill, two I had.

Okay so for those of you who might actually still have some old cd's lying around- this is the perfect craft (assuming you no longer listen to them). And for you young in's- go hit up a thrift store! We have been super excited to add onto our zest little garden. From new plantings and labels to garden art- the list keeps growing! I think one of the best parts about gardens are that anything really goes! After all, it's supposed to be an adventure and show growth and creativity, right? So here is a little combo or creativity mixed with recycling too! Original Blog Post Photo Credit Anya McInroy
This shutter comes to me from my good friend and neighbor Anita who is sadly moving. She had a couple shutters and 2 old cabinet doors displayed on her walls for years but her new house is lacking in wall space. She thought maybe I could put them to good use. Gladly.But now I find out that the shutters were taken off her family home years ago…they have sentimental value and they have a cool aged patina. I can’t keep her family heirloom but I could repurpose it and give it to her oldest son who just happens to be getting married. And just in case they don’t like heirlooms or shabby chic, I’m giving cash too :).

Two weeks ago my husband was cleaning our room, knocked into the dresser and our mirror, which at that point was dangerously just leaning against the wall instead of being attached to it, fell on his head and broke. After ensuring he was fine (a few scratches here and there, and lots of glass on the floor!) inspiration struck and I realized I can repurpose the frame into something else! An artistic friend of mine had shown me in the past all these different things you can do with cut up toilet paper rolls (there are also plenty of ideas on Hometalk as well!) and so I decided to get to work!
This week’s Hometalk challenge was the West Elm Challenge so I popped over to their website and began browsing. While I was there I checked out the abstract art section. I am intrigued by abstract art. It looks to me like I can do it but I usually end up going “Nope!” Much harder than it appears. This time I decided to be inspired by one of the West Elm pieces and try to break down the layers to its creation. I’m not trying to copy but to create my own wall art using their style. When I finished my piece, I wanted to make an easy frame that was removable. I am not sure my piece is finished so I wanted to be able to easily remove the frame to create more layers on the canvas.Some items that I had on hand were gesso, texture paste and a stretched art canvas. Texture paste works really well to add dimension to your art. If you want to check out the inspiration, it is called Breathe on West Elm’s website, under Abstract Art.
Large art pieces can get pricey! Why not turn a shower curtain into wall art? Here’s a super simple way to get art for the outdoors at a fraction of the cost! Hello! Really fun and quick project for you today. Remember my cute turtle picture from our latest one room challenge reveal? Remember how I told you that I turned a shower curtain into art? Well, today I show you just how easy it is to make your own large-scale art piece!
I will be showing you this decorative piece today. This is one we enjoyed a lot building.My husband was mowing the lawn one day and decided to cut this bush which was in the middle of the yard and always made it harder to cut the grass.We didn’t want to just throw away the pretty wood and decided to do something with it.
Recently, I created a statement piece of art for my living room makeover. Not only does artwork cost a lot, but even just buying a large canvas (mine measures about 90″ long!) would cost an artist hundreds of dollars. Well, I’m very frugal and could not see spending money on something I could potentially do myself. Fortunately I have some artistic skills and a table saw so I was able to make this large canvas wall art for only $14.

Like most people today, we all download to usb and live stream , so no longer have a use for all the cd’s and DVD’s. So I wanted to try and find a way to recycle them. I wanted to start off small because doing a mosaic can be very time consuming so I went for a simple house number. This project was so awesome, that Hometalk turned it into a video! Watch it right here:
I found these frames at Michaels and I just had to buy them. They fit perfectly with my farmhouse decor. Im so excited about this find!
