Craft Room Revamp #2 - Wall of Art

November 18, 2009

Here is my second craft room/office renovation project that I finished over the weekend. For this project, I wanted to add some wall art to a blank wall. I have found some really cute wall art on Etsy, but am really on a budget crunch for the rest of the year. So, instead of waiting to do something until next year, I decided to get a little inventive and cheap, yet again.

Have you seen the British saying, "Keep Calm and Carry On"? Well, I just love it and really wanted to purchase one of the cute posters, but just don't have the money now. This one is $100.00!

As I was searching the internet for wall art ideas, I came across this adorable "Keep Calm and Carry On" project, but it required me to buy jeweled letters. My goal for this projects was to keep it as cheap as possible, so I continued searching online. About a half an hour later, I almost jumped out of my computer chair when I found this:


Not only is it a free download of the poster, but it is cherry red! Perfect for the new look of my craft room!

I downloaded the size I needed, printed it on cardstock that I already had, matted it with a piece of scrapbook paper that I already had, and framed it in a white frame that I already had. Grand total = $0.00!

I was so excited with my free project, but still needed something else on the wall. I had come across this really cute framed fabric idea during my internet searching. I decided to give it a try.

I was so excited to have found the exact Dollar Store frames that the tutorial shows. So, I picked up four for $4.00 (that's a lot of fours)! I then went back to my fabric bin, the one I used for my craft room revamp #1, and chose four different swatches of fabric (pastel plaid; pink and blue flowers; red and white polkadots; and the red, pink, and green fabric used on the bulletin board revamp).

Once I cut the fabric and placed it in the mini frames, I hung two on each side of my new, red poster.


Ta Da! My wall of art, which only cost me $4.00! Another awesomely cheap craft project.
