DIY ART

I'VE HAD EMPTY PHOTO FRAMES LYING AROUND THE APARTMENT FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER, AND I'VE SEARCHED HIGH AND LOW FOR TWO LARGE PRINTS AND 3 A4 PRINTS AND COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING ANYWHERE! SO I GOT A BIT CREATIVE AND USED THINGS FROM AROUND THE HOUSE! 

THE FIRST PRINT I MADE MYSELF ON PHOTOSHOP, THE MIDDLE ONE IS OUR WEDDING MONOGRAM THAT WE'RE USING ON ALL OUR WEDDING STATIONARY AND SOME OTHER THINGS (THAT YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE) AND THE LAST ONE WAS STRAIGHT FROM GOOGLE!

SO I'VE SEEN PEOPLE FRAMING THEIR SHOPPING BAGS FOR YEARS AND I USED TO THINK IT WAS SO STUPID, BUT DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES! CHUCKED MY HERMES SHOPPING BAG IN ONE FRAME AND WALLAH! NOW THE OTHER ONE WAS A BIT MORE THAN JUST CHUCKING A PAPER BAG IN A FRAME... 

WHEN I FIRST MOVED OUT OF HOME IN 2014, THE FIRST THING I BOUGHT FOR MY NEW APARTMENT WAS A COW HYDE RUG AND A SET OF MISSONI TOWELS/CUSHIONS.
I ENDED UP BRINGING THEM WITH ME WHEN I MOVED TO AUSTRIA TO ADD A BIT OF LUXE TO MY APARTMENT, AND THEY'VE BEEN IN THE CUPBOARD NOT EVEN GETTING USED! I FINALLY GOT STUFFINGS FOR THE PILLOWS TODAY AT IKEA AND THEN I CAME HOME AND WAS LOOKING AROUND THE HOUSE FOR SOMETHING TO FILL THE FRAME AND THOUGHT WHY NOT PUT THE TOWEL IN THERE...

AND I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO RUIN THE BAG OR TOWEL TO MAKE THESE SUPER CHIC AND EASY PIECES OF ARTWORK, JUST A BIT OF STICKY TAPE AND SOME PINS, AND YOU'RE GOOD TO GO #DIY
