Off the Page Project - My Living Room
By the end of my little adventure I had a whole new room for $89.00. I do take my miserly ways to all other areas of my life not just my scrapbooking. The thing I love most about this room is I created it all myself. It's definitely MY living room!
These four canvases cost $2.95 each. The paper to cover each of them was $1.50 each and then the tube of paint I used to recolour them this bronze colour cost $3.99. All up it cost me $22.00 to create these. And all the left overs were used to create a fifth canvas that sits on an easel on top of my TV unit. These are my new cushions. Pretty cool huh? And only $7.95 each! $32.00 for four new cushions! Gotta look out for those bargains!
These are the other things I created to decorate the room. The canvas on the left was created using left overs from the first set of canvases as well as other finds from my scrapbooking stash. There's even a piece of wrapping paper off the chocolates the kids gave me for my birthday! Reuse, Recycle....lol..... The canvas was one I bought when my son was a baby (6 years ago now) for my husband to paint a picture for his room...... well that didn't happen so now I've put it to good use.
