My roommates and I were lucky to find a huge, amazing apartment in Chicago. However, along with the large size came lots of blank walls. Big pieces of artwork are typically very expensive (and out of our price range!) so I was thrilled to come across this frame at my favorite thrift store for only $5. To fill the frame, I headed to Jo-Ann’s and picked up some fabric and gold paint. By re-painting the frame gold and adding patterned fabric as the artwork, I was able to create a thrifty piece of art for our living room and add some decoration to the walls.
