Decorating on the cheap
A few years ago I saw these adorable clip art boards in my Pottery Barn Kids catalog and thought how easy it would be to make. My apologies for lack of color. They kind of blend into this wall since the wall color is the same as them. This will be changing soon. But back to my cool story....I went to my local hardware store and bought a wooden board for $1.50. I already had the paint so that was free. The clips I found at Fred Meyers and paid $1.50 for three. I simply nailed the clips to the board and there you have it! Well sorta, I forgot to mention sawtooth's I already had were nailed in the back so I could hang these. But you could easily drill a hole in the back and just use a nail to hang them up.
How cool are these. You can use these for putting your children's art work or maybe even in your office. Possibilities are endless.
Total for this project=$4.50 for two.
Price Pottery Barn Kids wanted=$30 for two.
Total cost for this=$1
Art work in Seattle already done for sale=$20-$100
My point to this post is to get your minds thinking. You can decorate your home for cheap and not look cheap. If you cannot afford that oh so cool piece you want, make it yourself. There is always a way around everything. You just have to be creative!
