Fabulous Finds {update}

Here it is in all of it's sad, un-glory. {Yeah, I know it's not a word.}

{garage sale finds: it's the big one in back}
Well, one can of spray paint, a black & white mat + a watercolour by a friend &....voila! A brand new, super-bright, P I N K piece of art for my home. The most expensive part of it all? The can of pink spray paint for $4. Yes, for about five bucks I got this loveliness.

My mom & I removed the inside of the frame, which was a linen-type thing that would not have taken well to spray paint. A few coats was all it took. Oh, and that's the Hamburger Man in front.

I haven't decided where to hang it yet, so stay tuned. Even sitting on a table it's brightened up my apartment quite a bit!

Both turned out really great! Thank you for offering to help take down my wallpaper if you were in Cali. You're so sweet. Nobody seems to want to, I can't see that I blame them! lol
