simple DIY art

2 Jun

So I did a couple wonderful things today. I got new curtains for our bedroom and made two pieces of cheap (read: free!) art for the wall in between those newly curtained windows!

To make these DIY art I searched on’s “photography” section. All of these images are free and there are some great photoshop-esque options in terms of editing them. I found a lovely image of a dirt road lined with trees. The green color is just beautiful and compliments my new bedspread deliciously! I edited this photo two times to say two different phrases “our story is love” and “and they lived happily every after”.  It’s a bedroom after all and our home is full of love so I wanted the images to reflect that.  Here is what they came out looking like.

I found two document frames laying in the closet and thought they would be perfect sized for the windows. So I printed these images out (just regular printer paper and ink) and took another white piece of print paper to “mat” the image in the frame.

Here’s the finished product! I think it looks just lovely.  And what about those curtains? They totally brighten up the room right? LOVE it.

Simple, free DIY!! Gotta love it.
