Our Office is complete...
Ian's workspace. My husband is such a neat freak - at least when it comes to his desk. Not sure if that is the engineer in him or what. I am trying to keep a clearner more organized desk. I really am.
A few days ago the wall-art we ordered from China arrived. It is 3 canvas prints. I was a bit bummed to see they were not stretched - just printed on canvas and rolled up. We took them by a craft store to see how much it would be to get them stretched so we could hang them. $400.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My jaw dropped. No way! We are on an extremely and I mean extremely tight budget now with our youngest being away at college. So we said no thanks and walked away. As we were walking through the frame department I saw some glass frames - without the frame basically. They were 16x20 and our prints were 20x20. Now the prints - all three of them I found and bought off eBay and they were a whopping $12.00 total. Shipping was $10.00 so we paid $22.00 for the set. I am not emotionally attached to them... not my images. So... I bought 3 of the 16x20 frames and brought it all home.. trimmed the canvas prints down to size (ended up just taking some grey-ish sky off) and viola! Done. Total cost for the prints, shipping from China and the frames $55.00. I can live with that.
