When you were a teenager did you used to cover your walls with pictures from magazines? I did. In junior high I used to cut out black and white Calvin Klein ads and hang them up on my walls. I got the idea for my older, cooler cousins Jackie and Christine. On the weekend, I decided to channel my 14 year old self and cut out pictures from magazine, Uppercase.
Unlike my 14 year old self, my 28 year old self feels that frames are an absolute must. We used these old dark IKEA frames that had been stashed in the basement for the past two years. I think they need to be painted white but for now they are OK.
Talk about an affordable way to spruce up your walls! It was hard to cut up my Uppercase magazines but I feel so happy every day I look at the pictures hanging above my bed. Totally worth the sacrifice!
