New Dining Room Pictures from Free Printables!

Man, I wish I had a picture of the old photos I used to have up in our dining room.  They were cool, black & whites taken by a friend of rustic, falling apart, abandoned buildings.  They had a vintage artsy feel to them and originally framed for up a stairway at an previous apartment. Not quite dining room decor though.

I stumbled upon when looking for some vintage style clip art for wedding invites.  That site is amazing and has a huge variety free graphics downloads as well as project ideas. Way cool.

The Graphics Fairy

I had the brilliant idea one day that I could use some of the beautiful victorian food & dining related graphics from GraphicsFairy to redo my dining room wall!

I printed off a few graphics onto photo paper - which I had gotten for a great price a while back from Sam's with an e-value.  Then pop them into the my current frames in the same configuration on the wall.  The three smaller frames are clip type from Ikea for cheap.  The other two are fancier frames with mats. Since the two mats were white, and the backgrounds of the pictures were also white.. I decided to give the mats a pop of color using some green wall paint I used on other projects (green is my accent color for the kitchen).

Instant, easy & quick dining room wall makeover - for free.

I just love when I come up with these ideas :)

  1. Don't you just love FREE? I just hung three kitchen prints I found for free on Pinterest.
    I saw your link on Delightful Order.

  2. Wow! I had never heard of the graphics fairy before. I love how your decor turned out. I'm going to go check it out and see what I can do to help out my little dining room.

  3. I love Graphics Fairy! But I'd never thought of just printing some things out and putting them in a frame. Fabulous idea! bedroom could use a little something, so thanks for the tip!
