I’m Amber, a stay-at-home mom who likes to sneak blogging in during my kids nap time. When I am not doing the mommy thing, you will find me painting signs or doing design work for clients. I also LOVE working on DIY around the house with my husband. We enjoy dumpster diving, thrifting, auctions and salvage. I usually tell him what I want and he figures out how to do it. We make a great team! Currently we are in the process of relocating from North Idaho to Southern Idaho and are house hunting like mad! I can’t wait until we are settled and can resume life as usual!

Today I am sharing a fun project with you…it’s actually what I made for my husband’s new office (only they turned out so cute, they may have to go in our home when we find one)! Its super quick and so EASY!
I love big photos and this is an inexpensive way to get big impact for not very much money. I did these 3 photos and two others for grandpas for less than $20!
Here’s what you will need:
12 x 17 pine boards– You can use scrap wood or buy a 1 x 12 from any home improvement store.
11 x 17 Tabloid Print– Have it printed on card stock instead of photo paper and it will only be about $2 it for an 11 x 17. I have mine printed at Staples.
Spray Paint– any color
Upholstery Tacks– $1 from Walmart
