Wednesday is quickly becoming my favorite day of the week on the ole' blog. I hope you guys are enjoying the "want it for less" series as much as I am. My latest money saving find is actually a "2fer". Which means it's twice as fun.
I've been on the hunt for new artwork for the master bedroom but wasn't quite sure which direction I wanted to go. Black and white photos, a painting, framed prints, large wall mirror....it felt like the world of art was getting bigger and bigger to choose from. Until I found fine art photographer Kari Herer & instantly fell in love with her work & her amazingly creative esty shop. When looking at her photographs I imagined one framed in a beautiful mirror frame that I recently spotted at West Elm. The problem was that it was going to be a little bit more than I had allotted in my budget. So before I tweaked the numbers to make it work, I wanted to see if I could create the look for less.
And thanks to Target getting all trendy in home decor (frame $34.95) and Ikea for offering a beautiful print of a Kari Herer photograph (a steal at $3), I was absolutely able to create the same look for less. Wooo whooo!
Here is my "imitation" version, which I am head over heels for.
And with a $60 savings I was able to use that money towards additional artwork for the space which I cannot wait to share with you guys (hopefully next week). And I must say, I am loving the bunny and flowers with Spring in the near future and Easter on the horizon.
So what do you guys think?! A steal right. Now I want to hear from you. Let me know what kinds of things you want to save money on. Fashion, home decor, DIY projects etc. etc. I would love to get your input so we can continue to grow this series.
See you thrifty peeps tomorrow.
