I love how Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick used a plastic placemat she had on hand to create
art in her kitchen.
How easy to print out your a favorite quote or saying and frame it. Go check
out 320 Sycamore, Melissa has the best ideas. I'm going to use this one someday.
Personal, Monogram art by Terry, again love this!
With all this inspiration out there I decided to create my own.
Found this placemat at Target and loved the design and the yellow in it so I bought it. I
knew I could figure out something to do with it.
To create my art, I started by cutting the placemat in half. Two for one
deal, or you could get more depending on the size of frame you use.
I used two 12x14 black frames I already had, but since I didn't have the proper size
mat I made them myself. I used poster board and cut the mats as staright
as I could. It's not perfect, but I'm ok with that. Each 1/2 of the placemat
fit in the frame to look like this. How easy? So if you are out and
about, always keep your eyes open for a awesome placemat.
Here they are up on the wall in my kitchen area with the chalkboard in the center.
