Botanical Print DIY

Design Sponge
   
It's no secret, I like house plants.  I almost have them in every room of my house.  Well, now it's time to add some foliage to the wall.  I was inspired by these images of over scale botanical prints.  I love large art.  I think it is stately.  I have a spot in my living room above my side chair that needs a large piece of art to complete the vignette of the space.  I tend to stick with original art, but I am stepping out of my boundaries and going with a print.  We will see.

Since I am on a budget (ugly word) I stayed away from the large scale pre- framed prints at stores like Z Gallery, Aaron Brothers, ect.  I found the above pumpkin print here.  Trust me friends, I did my homework and they are by far the cheapest for botanical prints. I love the large green leaves in the print. I purchased a  24 by 36 inch print.  I picked up an Ikea Ribba frame in dark wood and viola! The print was 13.99 and the frame was 24.  I think that is pretty good for large scale art!  I will share pictures as soon as the print arrives.
