Decorating on a Budget: Easy Art

 I am always on the lookout for new and interesting art to decorate with.  I like the feel of a collected home, with objects and pieces layered, rather than anything that feels a little "too" designed.  Today I thought I'd share my favorite way to add a bit of affordable art to your space.  All you need is one or two inspiring coffee table books & a frame of your choice!

Step 1: Find a page from one of your favorite coffee table books that you really love to look at.  This picture of Audrey Hepburn is from Audrey 100, a coffee table book full of intimate portraits of Audrey and her family.  I just adore this photo!


Step 2:  Place the picture in a frame of your choosing.  I chose to place this photo in a simple black frame that I got at Hobby Lobby for around $5. 
 Ta-da!


I used the same frame for a gorgeous Edie Sedgwick drawing I got off Etsy:


Here's another page from a coffee table book called The Allure of Women that I framed for my dresser:


Easy peasey lemon breezy! :)  Here's a photo of my dresser vignette with the various framed pictures:


I apologize for the low resolution photos.  They were taken with my iPhone, as my point and shoot is broken.  Sorry lovelies!  In other news, I am guest posting on Sadie+Stella today, about how to recreate this fabulous room originally featured in Canadian House & Home:


I hope you will check out the post. Have a great Tuesday!  XO,  Sam
