Curtain Rod Photo Display

Have you ever had a project that never. seems. to. end!  I have been updating our bedroom decor for what feels like centuries.  It all started with a beautiful quilt that my sister made for me and my husband as a wedding present.  It had been sitting in a closet for years, and I really wanted to showcase it!  Unfortunately, nothing in my existing decor matched, so I had to start from square one.  It's been fun, but I am so happy to be getting to the end!  It's taken me so long to finish everything that I am probably going to want to switch things up again soon.  Ha!  Life and where you live it is a constant project.

This is actually one of my favorite projects that I have completed for our bedroom, and by far the cheapest.  All of the supplies that I used I found around our house.  I am a big believer in shopping for supplies from your own home.  We all have so many things lying around that we could transform into something useful.  All it takes is a little creativity!

This frame was originally one of those frames that has the multiple picture windows in the mat border.  I took out the mat and replaced it with some foam board  and mod podged some scrapbook paper onto it.  I am not fancy enough to have a Silhouette, or similar cutting machine, so each of these letters were cut out by hand!  Just using my boring old printer, and my trusty scissors.  It took some serious patience cutting each word out, but when you are too cheep to buy stickers... you gotta figure out another way.  I am such a cheap-o!

 These curtain rods were just lying around our house collecting dust, and my husband likes to "de-clutter" our house occasionally weekly.  So, it was either use them, or they were getting booted to the curb.  In the same box as the curtain rod, there were also some cheap plastic frames that were screaming to be used.  By simply attaching the frames to the curtain rod with a little ribbon, the drap-boring-old-rod was transformed into an incredible photo display!

I love it!  And it looks amazing above our beautiful quilt!  

Have you completed a project by using only supplies found at your own home?  Send me your photos!  I'd love to see some awesome creativity in action.

Thanks for stopping by!
