DIY Oversize Photo

Large scale art doesn't need to unattainable. I shot this with my iphone, uploaded the image to Art.com and had it blown up to 24 x 32" then crafted a super easy DIY acrylic frame to coordinate.

Which, as a tip, is mostly cut at no charge! High resolution iphone photo 24x32" photo print from ...

The result feels expensive but barely made a ding on our wallet. Ikea side table 2 24x36" sheets of Metal sheeting Thin metal wire Gold spray paint Pliers with wire cutters Staple gun 1/4" staples costs and time: $110 per...

Boom, done! I am a little in love with this project and feel like of all of our ideas, this one really feels the most luxe, the most high end.
