A few weeks ago I noticed these framed prints at Goodwill.
For whatever reason, one of them was priced at $5 and the other one was just $3. I asked the cashier what the difference in them was (and if they’d consider taking $3 for each of them), and sure enough brought them home for just $6, total.
I’ve seen so many pretty botanical and patterned prints in the Ballard Designs Catalog (I love that store!) , but there’s no way I could justify shelling out nearly $200 for the set. (Especially just to hide in our bathroom!) The frames were in decent shape, I liked the linen matte that they already had, so all I had to do was switch out the print to make it match our home.
So, I took these two apart, purchased $8 in fabric at Joann’s (after my 30% off coupon), and came out with two prints that are perfect to add some color to our walls.
(I use my hot glue gun for everything – since I couldn’t convince my husband to hunt down his staple gun in the garage, I used hot glue to put it all back together.) 😉
Here’s what I spent:
- Goodwill frames – $6
- Fabric – $4
- Total = $10 – woohoo!
If you’re looking for inexpensive ways to fluff up your walls at home, I’m telling you what . . . a trip to your local thrift store is so worth it. If you’ve seen anything fun at your local Goodwill or thrift store recently I’d love to hear about it ~ leave a comment to share!
I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
