Easy Vintage DIY

I’ve always really liked vintage-style prints, and I knew that someday I’d like to use some to decorate our future home. A few months ago, I came across the easiest DIY ever for vintage prints here, and I decided to give it a try over the weekend to snazz up our living room.

First, I measured the dowels to be slightly longer than the width of the prints, and then I sawed them to size. After that, it was as easy as hot-gluing the dowels to the tops and bottoms of the prints, and hanging them with the twine!

I hung them in a group of three because I’ve read that grouping things in uneven numbers is more stimulating to the eye. Chad thinks two would look better, though. What do you think?

I love this new addition to our decor, and I think it turned out great! Yay for easy, pretty DIY projects!
