Recently I have gotten on this big kick of making things myself - Pinterest has, I'm sure, contributed! :) One of my BIGGEST hobbies is saving money. I mean seriously. big. hobby! Just ask my husband... It's a good thing, and he likes it, but sometimes I get a little obsessive. Ha! I've made homemade laundry soap, and some other cleaning supplies.
But that's all "work stuff." And while it's great, (and I'll share some of those recipes soon - in case you haven't yet seen them on Pinterest...lol) THIS post is like a triple-favorite. I love pictures, I love decorating, and I love saving money. And this has all three!!
Photo (my 11x14 was $5.84 at Wal-Mart)
Canvas (got two 11x14 canvases for $3.60 @ Hobby Lobby)
Black craft paint
Small paint brush
Before I got started though, I had to drag Timothy to the park for a snapshot...
And, wah-lah! I now have an 11x14 photo canvas in our bathroom! I think it cost me $10.00-$12.00, and the Mod Podge and black paint will last for many more pics!
