Design on a Dime with Brenda

I had a decorating idea while I was upstairs painting the last couple days. I had seen someone else do this, and thought it was cute.... I went to Michael's and got various scrapbooking papers and put the paper into black picture frames to decorate the upstairs bathroom and just outside the bathroom. The fixtures in that area are black and the walls are turquoise and browns.

First are the bathroom pictures. The papers were 79 cents each (not on sale) and the frames were on sale for $4.99 each... so this is a relatively inexpensive decoration that anyone can do. The bathroom is small, so it was pretty impossible to get a picture of the entire bathroom, but they are above the toilet opposite the wall with the sink and mirror, which is black (sort of wrought-iron looking) and oval. To give credit where it is due, I wasn't planning to do these two pictures (just the one you will see below) but Sonja was with me and when she saw these, said they would look good just framed by themselves. I think they turned out really, really pretty. She's good to have around!

Below is the one I put outside the bathroom on the wall by the steps going up to the bonus room. (That's why it may look kind-of high on the wall in this picture, but really, it's not). We already had this frame from a while back and never had used it. These papers were on sale for 25 cents each- so that's $1.25 + whatever the frame cost.

A closer view:

I'm proud of me!

I've been wondering what these would look like - very pretty, and something I wouldn't have thought of doing.
