My husband and I just moved in to a new home.
We had the entire house painted white, and I absolutely love all the light!
I have been slowly decorating (I'm a newbie),
and have been trying hard to stay with things that are true to our personality.
I love photography, and I really love finding new ways to display my photos in my house.
I always have my phone with me, and I wanted to display my phone photos around my house--
which is something I don't feel like people realize you can do.
Iphone pictures can be printed reasonably big, and they look great!
I wanted to do it as cheap as possible, of course...
so I found these frames at Ikea for $1.99 each.
I learned after I bought them that the frame was for a pictures that was 8.5x11, instead of 8x10..
but after some thinking- I remembered that Costco prints of photos sized 12x36 for $4.95!
(When you order this specific size at Costco, you have to go into the store to one of the kiosks to order)
First, I cropped each of my phone images to exactly 8.5x11.
Then, I opened a new document in Photoshop, sized 12x36.
I then drug all of my images into that document-- which fit 4 images, with some room to spare (as shown below).
So, I ordered 2 12x36 prints, with 4 images on each print, for $10.
Once I got them home, I cut them out and framed them.
I wanted a picture from each season, and some of my favorite sunsets in between--
and I really love how it turned out!
My entry is still a work in progress, but you can see how the pictures look displayed on the wall.
So- the whole project was $26!
$16 for the frames
$10 for the photo prints
Phones take awesome pictures too! Display them!
