Pottery Barn Architectural Prints Inspiration

Recently, while browsing through my Pottery Barn magazine, I saw these great architectural prints. Go here to see the Pottery Barn photo.  My husband, daughters and I love to take photos of old architecture.  While visiting Seattle, WA,  I noticed these lovely old pillars with great architectural detail.  So of course I took a photo of them.  Upon seeing the Pottery Barn prints, I decided I could use my photos to make my own version rather than pay $47 each.

Using a photo editing program I changed the photo to sepia and then sketch mode.  Here's my end result.

I hung the print using close-pins like the one in this photo. See it hanging in the upper right hand side of the PB photo?

Here is my knockoff version in a frame.

Here it is with an additional frame.

My DIY Thrifty Version Costs: 

25 cents for card stock
50 cent garage sale frame
Total cost - 75 cents !
Not a bad price for a piece of artwork.
