Restyled Art





I had originally purchased a pair of seashell pictures to decorate my powder room. Then I moved and didn't really have an ideal spot for them. At first, they ended up in the Goodwill donation box until I got to thinking of another idea...I'm so glad I didn't give them away!


I decided to decorate my kitchen/eating area in a "Cafe" type theme. I checked out the prices of various pictures and decided I really didn't want to spend that much (even if they were on sale!) so I came up with an alternative. I used scrapbook paper, corrugated cardboard (from the moving boxes, no less :), greeting cards, ribbons and buttons. I have a grouping of nice "Cafe" style art for a fraction of the cost of ONE new picture.
