$15 Framed Poster Print

$15 Framed Poster Print by 3 Little Greenwoods
Hello and Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! What did you do? My husband had to work. My son woke my up at 5:30 and said he felt dizzy. Sure enough he was running a fever, boo!
After fighting with him to take his medicine, we finally got back into bed at 6:30. He got to snuggle with mama, because that's just how I am when my kids are sick. I want them near me so I can make sure they are ok. I can roll over and feel them.
We finally got up around 10, since church was out of the question with him being sick. I spent most of my day cleaning, making breakfast and lunch and then finally got to take a shower and relax.

My husband got home around 3:30. I had origianally planned to go to dinner and a movie with my mom. I had full intentions of cancelling since my son was sick. But good ole Daddy/hubby insisted I go and have a good time. Thank You Sweet Love of my Life.

Ok, well enough about my day, tell me about yours! 
But first let me introduce...

Hey y'all! I'm Ashley from 3 Little Greenwoods

 Today I am sharing with you how I filled an awkward space in my daughter's Adorable Little Girl's Bedroom. Let me show you how I created a beautiful Framed Poster Print with a Goodwill find and $15! $15 Framed Poster Print by 3 Little Greenwoods Upcycling second hand decor, painting treasured heirlooms, and DIY projects galore transformed my daughter's space into

Every spot was carefully filled with a Gallery Wall of Family Portraits, a DIY Dress Up Station, and even a Magic Mirror for Tootsie to twirl in front of! There was just one little area that really bothered me. Nothing I placed above Tootsie's headboard ever filled the space. The first piece I tried was hand painted artwork that matched her original crib bedding. It was a sentimental piece but the size was way too small to fill the space.

Next I made a Yarn and Felt Flower Wreath. The wreath was a fun project to make {especially the felt flowers} and I really love the colors but it wasn't large enough either.

What I really wanted was a huge custom made canvas using a photograph from Tootsie's three year old portrait session! My talented friend at Sierra Swales Photography did a fabulous job at capturing Tootsie's spunky personality. But my
frugal self did not want to spend $50 plus to order one. So I did what every Do It Yourself Girl does when she needs a project done cheap. I headed to Goodwill! There I found the most lovely wooden frame. Not.

Fortunately for me, it was the perfect size to fit a poster sized print (20" x 24") but the frame was filled with the nastiest, hootchie-mama red, burnt velvet fabric I have ever seen. But at $6.06 I was thrilled with the find!

 It was nothing that a little {a lot} of white spray paint and the claw end of a hammer couldn't fix. ;) The poster print was ordered online at Sam's Club for only $8. It was attached to foam core with spray adhesive then hot glued into the frame. Hint ~ Make sure your photograph is a high resolution file or the poster will be grainy. I was very lucky my photographer shared a quality image with me! Viola! Fabulous personal artwork that filled this space perfectly!


Here's the break down of what I spent:
Goodwill Frame - $6.00 Poster Print - $8.00 Sheet of Foam Core - $1.00 Spray paint from stash - FREE
Total for huge Framed Poster Print - $15!
I hope I have inspired you to keep looking for just that right piece to fill your awkward spaces! You never know what a can of spray paint can do until you try! ;)
