Today I had a little time to work on some new art for our laundry room.  I'm trying to makeover this room for the least amount of money, so thrifty Joy shopped the house for items to use.

Here is what I found.

Two canvas framed art purchased at a garage sale last spring for .25 cents each.  When I saw these, I knew I would use them for some art work, but just not sure where.  I had them tucked away with my craft supplies.

I also found a remnant of white duck fabric and
transfer paper left over from a previous project.  

I began the project by taking a sharpie marker and extending the black from the frame sides onto the front of the print.  I did this so there wouldn't be any of the photo showing on the sides of the print.  I also touched up a few nicks on the sides of the frame.

I then cut the duck fabric to the same size as area of the frame.  I found some laundry images at Graphics Fairy blog and printed them off.  Important- make sure to flip the photo image before printing it onto the transfer paper (otherwise your wording will be backwards on your art work).  I then ironed the transfer paper onto the cloth, and then applied it to the canvas using an adhesive spray glue.

Here's a close up of the print.  I like how it has the 
texture of  canvas.

Here they are hanging in the laundry room.

Total cost of this project = 50 cents, plus a few pennies for the leftover fabric and transfer paper.
It's great to get this room all fresh and clean for spring.
In my next post, I'll share the secret project that I've been working on in the room, so make sure to come back and take a peak!
