“I can do that for WAY less!”

Do you ever fall in love with something in a store but think it is overpriced and walk away?

Well … I do. I’m frugal.

I recently saw this beautiful piece of art in a local store and loved it immediately.


But I didn’t love the price tag – close to $300! Plus I didn’t need two of them and they were way too large. So what did I do? I took a picture and thought… “I can do that for WAY less!”

Here’s my version in pink for my daughter’s bedroom. I bought a canvas at Michael’s with my 40% off coupon and used leftover paint from other painting projects in her bedroom. I spent about $15.

I love it because it’s in my own handwriting and it’s imperfectly perfect.



Have you ever copied something you admired in a store? I would love to hear about it!

  1. Looks amazing! You always had the nicest penmanship. I saw the same piece of artwork at Perch in Maplewood. It was very expensive… I think closer to $500. I don’t understand the pricing….
