score!

A few months back I was lucky enough to win a giveaway over at A Blonde's DIY life from UPrinting. I never win! So I was super excited. We have had family pictures needing to be framed for longer than I want to admit. But of course once my pretty free 16 x 20 rolled canvas came to live with us, I still had the expensive task of framing it. So it sat waiting for that time. 

Last week, I needed to go get some things framed for my client and my mom says she has a wholesale account at a place that sells frames in all sizes. So I went and scored a few frames for her and a light bulb went off that I should shop for myself while I was at it.

I found a nice 24 x 28 inch frame and a mat board for $28. My dad cut the mat for me and gave me the glazier points to finish.


Later that night me, my favorite brownie spatula {thanks Ashley!} and a big chunk of cardboard finished off the back. We debated on where to put it and decided that by the front door would be nice because we would see it the most there. But, I'm never above rearranging! I am so happy with how it turned out and so thrilled to have this hanging in my home. It also makes me feel fancy which is always a plus.


Best 28 bucks ever!
