HomeGoods Artwork Makeover

I have had this print hanging around for a couple of years now.
I just couldn't find an appropriate frame that didn't cost a bundle.

That is, until I went to my local HomeGoods and spotted this.And at this great price.
Who could pass it up. With the exception of the print that isn't all that special, the frame was in great condition.

So after some surgery, my print is now in a lovely home.The print I had on-hand was free. The frame was $7.00 How's that for economy decor!

Have you picked up anything recently at HomeGoods that you have turned into something else?

The print is really pretty and has me longing for the long days of summer. I, too, love Homegoods. I get lost in wandering around wanting everything!! ;-D

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great idea, Carmie! How could you not do something with that for $7.00! I think your print looks right at home in this frame.

Marie Anne said...

That is a great score!! "Surgery" is a good word for taking apart a frame sold with the print in it.
