Photos Make the Best Art


I decided to move around some frames in my house so they matched the wood furniture better.  This cherry wood frame had been in our bedroom with a picture my sister painted for us inside of it.  Since our bedroom has dark brown tones instead of red tones, I decided to buy a new frame from Hobby Lobby for the painting and found a home for the cherry wood frame in Emden’s room.

I contemplated what to put in the frame and decided that I wouldn’t be able to come up with anything cuter than a photo of my little girl so I ordered an 11×14 print of Emden from Wal-Mart (I think around $6), bought a pre-cut mat from Hobby Lobby ($3.99), and put it all together within a week.  It looks perfect in her room!

Find a photo you like, blow it up to an 11×14 or 16×20, frame it and mat it!  You won’t regret it!
