Vintage Wall Art. For Freeeee!

My bathroom has been sorely lacking in wall art since I decided to start redoing everything. One of the things that I really wanted to do in the bathroom was create a very different vibe then what was in there before. I wanted something that was vintage and classic but still maintained a sense of the feminine. 

And a sense of the overall budget which was little to nothin'.

So I was surfing around The Graphics Fairy where you can find an unprecedented amount of free printable clip art! It all has a great amount of vintage flair too it and it was exactly what I was looking for! On the blog there is a tab for "search" which lists all of the major categories of different clip art. 

Remember my huge-normous Little Mermaid poster? Well I knew that I would still have to incorporate mermaids somehow because I love them. Using the search tab on The Graphics Fairy blog I found an entire segment for mermaids!



I fell in love with this image almost instantly:

It's exactly what I wanted! I used some scrapbooking paper that I already had as well as some inexpensive WalMart frames and printed off another image that was full of seashells out of an old sea life dictionary.




I just printed them off of my home computer and cut them out! It was a quick and easy project but it adds so much character to the room that I love it a lot. Plus! I get to keep my mermaids.
