Show 'N Tell Tuesday: Out With The Old, In With The New



SHOW:
TELL:

I have had this picture since I was in high school. Actually I have 2 of them, one with a Cheetah and one with a Lion. I got them in high school from this store called Interiors by Canova (those of you from NWA know this store.) I was re-doing my room and going with a leopard theme, which was popular at the time. So I have these 2 pictures and while I like the frames, I'm not into these prints anymore. These pictures have just been sitting in our office, and finally over the weekend I decided to do something with one of them.

A couple months ago I saw a black and white print of the Eiffel Tower and it was only $4. I didn't know when I would use it or where, but for the price I just decided to get it. So over the weekend I took a part one of the pictures and cut my new print to fit. It was quite larger then the frame itself so I had to trim quite a bit off. I got it all back together and Voila!

{Now I just gotta figure out where I want to put it . . . }

It's a lot cheaper to use frames you already have and simply replace the picture. You can find prints many places. Hobby Lobby always has a lot of prints and they are usually half off. So instead of spending a lot on a whole new picture, try to find a new print first. And if you don't like the frame, consider spray paint, which is another great way to bring new life to something old or something that is just not your style anymore.
Happy Tuesday!
