Inexpensive Art Solutions!
My daughter Molly turned 8 in December. My great idea was to give her a surprise room makeover as a gift! Long story short, the room was not done prior to her birthday :-( My inspiration was the hot pink and black used in the Barbie packaging. I painted her walls Very Bery from Valspar at Lowes. 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint later (and a cold snap making the paint difficult to cure)!! Oh, I forgot to mention the 4 coats of white paint on the ceiling (another long story)! With all of this said, I really wanted to get the Barbie art work found at Pottery Barn Kids. Budget restraints prevailed and I had to go with plan B. I found the cutest Babie fashion model calendar in a kiosk in the mall. Next to find frames.. I found black frames with white matting at the dollar store for $6! Instant artwork!
Here are some pics of the process:
