$3.00 Artwork

So simple and inexpensive to do; you can get some really nice pictures added to your home d├ęcor just by searching for pictures online.  Barb at Upstairs Downstairs showed off this print recently on her blog and I fell in love with it.  I still need to print out and frame this one.

In searching for the print online, I found these two pictures with bunnies and an antique look, and printed them out in 5x7 size on photo paper.

These are by the artist F. Schlesinger who has some beautiful works. I was taken with a lot of this artist’s work while searching for prints.

While in Walmart recently I saw a bunch of frames for $3.00, so I grabbed a couple in an antique gold look for the prints.  I apologize for the glare on this one ~ I couldn’t get it any better, unless I move it to a totally different spot.

I think they would look even that much better if you find one of those ornate frames at the thrift or an antique store.

Pop them in the frame and there you go!  Great looking artwork for $3.00!
