Easy and Thrifty Artwork by Megan

I am working on a gray & yellow bedroom for our house. Of course I haven't really thought about that much past the dresser we did a few months back.  I have been pondering some ideas for wall decor or art too. I had a stash of pictures that I used before and wanted to reuse some of the frames.  

I took the frame and removed the artwork. I used some Valspar gray spray paint and covered the frame. Then I used the free printable that I found from Pinterest to place in the frame now.  Here is the link to the free printable: Persnickety Prints.  I am hoping that one day this room will be for another child, so I like the Love You in this printable.

Before & After

 I am going to be leaving the back without backing, so when I place it on the wall the color will show through. I like the look of the saying floating in the frame.  

I already the frame and spray paint, and the printable was free. I am a fan of projects that are fun and are thrifty.  I am excited to add it to the other items I already have in mind for the walls in the room.  Thanks for checking it out.
