A few days ago I was quickly flipping through a Ballard Designs catalog when this page caught my eye:
I love the botanical prints (and the wood wall, and the black cabinet, and the rattan charis...)! And then I saw the price:
Whoa! I'm sure the prints are very nice quality and I realize they come framed, but that little display on the magazine page would set one back a pretty penny. $1200 to be exact!
I think I started to appreciate my botanical grouping even more. The entire DIY collection (20 frames rather than 12 in the Ballard ad) totaled just under $100.
Granted, my pictures are pages taken from a book, matted on posterboard, and mounted in inexpensive plastic frames, but for over an $1100 savings, I'll take it. And, Good Housekeeping even loved it enough to print it in their magazine!
You can read how I made my botanical gallery wall here, and here are a few more super stylish and affordable DIY botanical wall ideas. If you'd like to pin, please click the link below the photo and pin from the original source. Thanks!
