A Frugal Solution

I really like this picture, but the print is slipping and I want to change to something black and white. What would the frugal yet aesthetic solution be? I took out the print and carefully rolled it up and saved it, it doesn't take up much room. Then I took out my free sheet music I got through Freecycle and a glue stick.


While I was watching TV, I glue stick-ed sheets onto the cardboard backing of the frame. It was fun, easy and fast. And I like the way it turned out.







I found the Eiffel Tower Picture at GW.




I also re-framed the favorite pencil sketch, the former frame was plain without a mat. I really like this frame from Big Lot's.

What a great idea. I love the sheet music. Such a pretty vignette. I hope you will join us for Table Top Tuesday with some of your vignettes too. They are stunning. Hugs, Marty

The sheet music was a great idea - I used old deeds on a tray I keep propped in the kitchen. The lamb drawing I love.

I hope you'll drop by AtticMag this week to tour my home.

What a nice simple change! I love the way you did the apothecary jar, too!
