I feel like at least one weekend out of four I spend my time making something new for my house. This weekend was no different when I popped into Paperchase and spotted these postcards for 75p each. I bought five which worked well together, with the intention to tape them to my pin board in my spare room come make shift office.

But after I made a trip to Ikea to price up a desk (stupidly on the weekend when students were heading back to uni), I spotted the perfect sized frames for 80p each. Which basically means I made these gorgeous mini pieces of wall art for the grand old price of £7.50. How can you argue with that?

I think my favourite design is the silver foil “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” postcard, just because I love the watercolour print in the background – if you scroll down you can take a better look at each one. This is such an easy little DIY, and I think it would be great for either your office and even a children’s bedroom where you can swap the postcards around every couple of months for some new inspiration.

  1. Erm, I'm off to papechase RIGHT NOW! Already been to ikea and stocked up on frames! Just been figuring out what to put in them so Thank You!

  2. I love IKEA only in this particular case – you are shopping for some things you know, you want to buy 🙂 If you have not specific list of things to buy – you are so doomed 🙂
