. . . kitchen artwork . . .

My parents bought a new house and have been very busy decorating.  They had a wall in the kitchen that my mom couldn't decide what to add to fill the space.  While we were shopping for something I had the idea to just create a few kitchen prints and put them in very simple black frames.  This was a super easy project and yet is one of the things she hears the most compliments on.  Yay!

If you aren't comfortable creating your own artwork you can either purchase these by emailing me or go to Etsy and you will find a ton of great downloadable files.  You will just send the files off to the photo center of your choice and then buy some basic frames and some scrapbook paper to mount them on and stick them in the frames.  Can't get easier than that right?

Once I created my artwork I sent them to Costco Photo for them to develop them.  I did have to call them to speak with them about the size because I chose to do squares.  Once the photos were developed I mounted them with adhesive to a bronze piece of scrapbook paper and then cut that to the size I wanted it--mine were 10x10.  I then mounted that to a 12x12 piece of black cardstock and put them in the frames.  So simple!
 Easy as can be but looks great and a super inexpensive way to fill up blank wall space!
