For a few months I have been trying to come up with a way to show off some of my favorite cell phone shots. I have contemplated posting them on a wall, framing a large 6x3' frame with the prints, etc. etc. Everything I wanted to do was going to end up costing a fortune and in reality, I just didn't have the space.
I had seen this and thought about going for it, but I felt that it would be quite a big undertaking, especially if I had to paint the fridge first. Plus our fridge isn't super cute like this one ;)
So I improvised and came up with a new plan. While we were shopping in Ohio at Ikea, we grabbed these record frames for dirt cheap and I started working on the collage. What do you think?
I really love it up on the wall. It's kind of in a spot in the hallway without any furniture. So it works that it is quite a "busy" collage. Here's how I managed to put together this collage for so little....
Frames- $7 From Ikea! It was the cheapest frames of this size and shape anywhere! Definitely the best choice for this project.
Pictures- $1.50 Here's where I saved the most. Instead of printing the images as 4"x4" prints that cost over .50 cents at most online printers, I printed them as 4"6" prints and then cut off the edges. I used snapfish and literally spent 5 cents a print.
Double sided tape- $1.00 This is what I used to attach all of the images. I avoided glue because I didn't want any chance of the images bubbling up.
Hope you are all having a fantastic Friday! I am so excited for this weekend. NOTHING IS GOING ON! :)
