Frugal Picture Update

SONY DSC

Budget, budget, budget seems to be my mantra for this year.  Keeping that in mind, when I was feeling like changing out the artwork in a frame that I have hanging in our Master Bathroom W.C., my options were to print something out from what I have saved on my computer or use an image from a two-year-old Cavallini calendar I’ve held onto.

I chose to go with the calendar.  I still have about five images left in this calendar.  I’ve used it before on several projects, one of which was shadowboxes I did here that are hanging over our bed.

I just used the existing image to cut the calendar page to fit.  I even left the old image in and put the new image over it.  This way I don’t have to worry about putting it somewhere {because I’ll never remember if/when I go to look for it}.

New image, new look! It satisfied my urge for something new and didn’t cost me anything.

Kathy, this is my favorite kind of update- shopping the house. Your pictures and frames look great! What a lovely compliment to your bedroom!

I used four of the pages from the 2012 calendar for my entry way. They are gorgeous!

You rock, Kath- seriously looks awesome and love it was so frugal.

What a lovely hue of blue that frame is...and I love this ties in with the bedroom artwork on wall. Nicely done, ma'am!!

I love "shopping" the house to add a new twist. I'm trying really hard to use pieces I already have too. These are really pretty! P.S. S got his card, thank you! =)

Hi Kathy, love the changed out print. So much more fun then shopping for new artwork. It looks great over your bed and I do the same thing, keeping an old print behind the new. I surely will put it away and not remember where!! LOL
It is always fun to use what we have and shop the house or our stash of graphics and calendars.
Everyone is watching their pennies these days!
Hugs

What a great calendar to use for these types of projects! I love that the images look collaged - gives the whole framed piece depth.
