    Awesome idea! I love Gray Malin, but his work is too much for my budget right now. I love this!

    Do you know how large you can print the shutterstock images and still have good quality? I see there are 3 levels available for purchas.e

    I always order the highest level and you can get them pretty large. I believe they are details on shutterstocks site.

    I love this DIY and the photo I am going to do the exact same one with the two inch border. Did you order the 1/8 x 36 x 48 Acrylic Sheets or your own custom size from freckleface?

    Hi Jodi,

    I ordered 32″ x 42″ 1/8 acrylic.

    Hope that helps.

    I would not use Freckleface as they were very rude to me

    So sorry about that. I have never had an issue with them and have recommended many people to them and have never heard anything bad.

    Depending on the size you might need LOWES does carry some acrylic sheets that could be used to make a frame.

    Great idea! how much did you pay for the two pieces acrylic? how much was shipping?

    I actually picked up the acrylic sheets at Lowes. I don’t remember the cost off hand.

    Amazing solution for my odd-sized print! Can you tell me: Did you order two sheets, or did your one order come with the two sheet for sandwich’ing?

    Thanks so much for this!

    I ordered two different pieces of acrylic to sandwich it together.

    Hi! I am happy I found this because I need to frame a really oversize piece. Question: On Freckleface, it stipulates that they can’t make the two sheets match exactly since they are saw cut and you have to allow for small variances…so, did you find your two pieces matched exactly? I’m afraid of a sandwich where one side is a little off… Thanks!

    I didn’t have any issues. I have also found large acrylic pieces at Lowes. So, if you have one near you then try there first so you can match them up yourself. Hope that helps!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]


Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
