design + decor :: gallery of cheap art

Our house has slowly been coming together . . .
besides the fact that my estate sale wonders have kept furniture coming and going in a crazy endless cycle, I have managed to nail a few things down in some quasi-permanent spots among the walls.

Our downstairs half-bath was craving my attention first and foremost because it had a HUGE blank wall that really kept things boring while doing your doo. (if you know what I mean) It really didn't matter how fancy I kept our reading material . . . it was so blann in there that you'd have no problem falling asleep on the throne.

So, enter some of my estate sale finds . . .

I had found some AMAZING watercolor/ink prints at a sale and snagged them for about $5 each. Both the details and vibrant colors work perfectly with our modern gray walls.

The gold inner-trim was great but I just wasn't feeling the outter red part of the frame.

So, I taped 'em up,

slapped on a couple coats of glossy black paint,

laid them out,



Instant gratification!

How amazing is it that this gallery of cheap framed art 
seems to make me feel a little more glamorous. . . 
(even after I wipe my 3 year old's butt and then catch a quick glimpse of myself in the mirror.)
These pictures in the background have a nice way of taking the attention off of the bags under my eyes! 

Awesome! Now, on to some laundry.
