Budget Decorating

Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you my easy and budget friendly updates I did with some thrifted Goodwill Paintings, repurposed picture frames, vintage floral prints and pillows I had laying around the house in storage to create a new eclectic/boho look for my living room. Spring
I found these two paintings at the Goodwill a few months back. I originally had thought they would look good in my bedroom just as they were but I soon decided I wasn't liking it so I stored them until one day as usual I got really bored and wanted a change. LOL. I painted the frames white with a milk paint I had laying around and hung them on my living room wall.
A few other paintings I found that go me inspired...
After...I painted the frames white which made the colors in the paintings pop! I needed a filler on the bottom so I just took out some photos I had in these frames, cut out some vintage floral prints from a garden book I scored from a flea market and taped them over the white paper. I left the paper fringed and I love the look.
Yes...There is suppose to be lots of pillows and they are suppose to be mix matched. ; )
I went downstairs and got all my pillows out I had from previous decorating experiences and just grabbed a variety of colors and threw them on my sofa. I really wanted a eclectic/boho feel.
I love bringing the outdoors in. I have lots of plants and painted birch trees around my windows so these pictures are perfect for my living room. I love mixing old with new and stepping outside the "box" when decorating.

    i really like the idea, but what i would also like to know is where you got the birch trees sticker (?) that on the wall... or did you paint them?? :)

    About your birch tree...did you have a pattern to follow or did you freehand it? I absolutely love trees and would love to do this in my bedroom. Your wall art of trees fits in perfectly.

    I am doing the same thing to all the framed art work in my new bedroom except I am using a variety of jewel tones to match my comforters. Thx for sharing. ( great minds think alike!)
