$4 Artwork for my room

Well, you know that I am trying to accessorize my master bedroom on the cheap, so today I stopped by the Habitat store and picked up a couple of frames.

They were only two dollars each, so I spent a whopping $4.00!

They are matted for a 8 x 10 picture which is exactly what I needed.


I spray painted them both black and sanded the edges just a bit.

I got my artwork for the frames from Vintage Printable online…just printed them off of my computer right at home!

There is a wealth of vintage prints that you can download and print for FREE! Love that!

I turned the mat around in the frame so it would be white instead of cream, and added the bird’s nest prints that I downloaded…


I still do not have the side tables for my room figured out, so right now I just have a table from around the house sitting there.


I am wanting to find a desk for this side of the room..


As you can see, I am trying to add touches of blue to the room. It was needing some color!


Not bad for FREE!


This one is my favorite. I love the little blue eggs…


I am hoping to find some matching lamps for both sides of my bed. Lamps are so expensive, so I am trying to find some at a thrift store.

Another great site to get free prints is The Graphics Fairy.

Here are some I downloaded from her site…


She has a ton of cool pictures, not just birds.

The pictures I made really added a nice touch to the room, and they were totally worth only $4.00!

So if you are needing artwork for your room, be sure to check both of these sites out!

  1. Wow!! Your new artwork looks wonderful! You got me thinking about what I could do in my own bedroom.

  2. Love the artwork! I have been meaning to print out images from those sites as well but haven't bought any color ink.

  3. Very pretty! What a great price!

  4. Hi Traci,
    Your artwork looks amazingly beautiful on your walls. Great job.


  5. They look great! Beautiful prints and free! Loving that! I like the little touches of blue :)

  6. Not sure if you have a Fred's in your part of the country, but they have the BEST lamps...for $10-20! Old Time Pottery also has good lamps.

  7. Hi Traci. The artwork turned out beautiful and don't you just love the price! I get really excited over things like that. Seeing what you can do with very little.

    Have a blessed day Sweetie. Hugs...Tracy :)

  8. Good for you, Traci! You made that $4 go a long, long way! Thanks for the links to those sites--I need to check them out.

    Here's a question for you. If you don't find side tables that you like or that you can afford, would it work to make a tablecloth for a skirted table out of burlap (like the one in your guest house), and then make a square topper out of a fabric that has some blue in it? It would be another way to bring in some color. You wouldn't need much of the topper fabric. You could even make a couple of decorative pillows for your bed out of the same fabric, perhaps adding a button covered in burlap to the middle of the pillow. Just a thought. :)

  9. Tracy, the pictures look wonderful. So pretty. Your room is coming together and I just LOVE the chandelier. Hugs, Marty

  10. Excellent work! I always love a good frame craft, and one that's super inexpensive :)

  11. Thanks for sharing the sites! I am always looking for artwork I can print at home. I love the image of the bird nest, LUV! You got a great deal on your frames also, mine were $7 ea. @ Big Lots :o(

  12. I love the pictures and I am going to check out the website. Thanks so much, Traci!


  13. I am SO into birds right now Traci. They are just so darn sweet and fit into just about any decor. I think they look perfect in your bedroom!

  14. Great artwork, I love the nest with eggs adding the touch of blue for your room. Isn't it fun adding the finishing touches to rooms. Have a great day!

  15. Great idea, Traci! Great frames, too, for $4.00! I love Karen's site, she always has such great images to choose from. I've printed out and framed a number of them for my own home.

  16. I did this in my master bath a few months website ever!!!

  17. LOVE printing art out online...your art came out gorgeous!!! And looks so much more expensive than $4!! xo

  18. Great idea and even better price! Love the photo's you picked out - so cute!

  19. LOVE the Habitat Resale store!!! So many treasures there, so little time ... :)

  20. I did the same thing and printed two duck prints for my hubby's bathroom!

  21. So pretty and what a nice price Traci!
    Your bedroom is looking really beautiful. :)

  22. SO pretty! Thanks for the link!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  23. It is perfect! And you can't beat $4!

  24. I too love the artwork. Food for thought on bedside tables. At, we love those inexpensive (I hate to say cardboard, but that's what it is) tables with a cloth on top. You can get them at Target or Pottery Barn. They are great because they are large - you have a fair amount of space at least on one side of your bed - and they offer a place for storage underneath. We recommend topping it with a white 60" round table cloth and then a topper that you can make yourself or change based on your decor, season etc....

    I just bought this one - that relates well to your new bird art - it looks a lot better in person than on the website- beautiful blues...

    Inexpensive - the right size, storage and updateable....what more could you want.

  25. Those are great frames! You really scored. I love vintage printables as well. Lots of great stuff on there. Your room is really coming along.


I am so glad to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. Blessings!
