I feel like this post was a long time coming.
After updating a few spots in our bedroom, it is a wonderment to me why I didn't do it months ago.
One of those updates includes recently adding two DIY canvas photos above our bed to replace these heavy iron-like accent pieces you see below (that honestly needed to be taken down a while ago).
We were a little nervous that the iron accent pieces could fall down and if that ever happened, could possibly be detrimental so down they came!!!
I had been wanting to put some kind of canvas photos in our room at some point, but just didn't want to pay the hefty price-tag that comes along with them!! I'm sure some of you can relate!
Then one night it dawned on me, why not take this idea I read about here and combine that with 2 canvas prints I already had on hand to make something WAYYY cheaper than the actual thing?!
Well, that turned out to be a really great idea and only cost me $3.58 for BOTH prints. :)
So here is what I did:
1. I uploaded and purchased 2 photos of our sweet girls onto the Staples website and ordered the photos in an engineering print...and later picked it up at the store.
2. I took my old canvases and centered the photos on each canvas.
3. After realizing I could staple the photos to the canvas (instead of tape the photos), I went ahead and used my trusty staple gun to do so.
4. Next, I hung our pictures on the wall and sat back in awe of them....because our girls are so photogenic and looking at these pictures now makes us smile! :)
Our oldest actually posed for me and this was the winning shot. She LOVES the camera and was actually getting a little upset that I didn't take more pictures of her.
I think she did a great job for a 2 year old!
Our youngest, the one with A TON of ENERGY...NO LIE...allowed me to snap a couple of them before she took off after the dog and/or dug through the mulch in our yard. She is quite the fun one and always keeps us on our toes, that's for sure!
I really love the way they turned out, and again, for the $3.58 price tag you have to admit that is quite a deal!
Now go ahead and order some for yourself, your family, and/or your friends....I know you want to!
