The DIY continues: Calendar turned artwork

As I've mentioned, I'm slowly but surely making changes to my house so that it's less bachelor and a bit more stylish.  I've come a long way since August, but I'm far from finished.  It gets a little daunting since I don't have much of a budget to work with and I don't like leaving things half done while I save for each piece.  I found myself in that situation once again as I redid our guest room this month (pictures to come tomorrow!) 

A blank wall needed some art, but I couldn't afford anything that I really like since the entire budget for the room was (a self-imposed) $150.  I had to get creative, so I picked up some 20" square Ribba frames from Ikea and the 2011 Charley Harper wall calendar from B&N.  After 30 minutes of cutting and framing, I had enough art to fill the wall and stay within budget.

I may swap out the prints one day, but for now I'm happy with the result.  Check back tomorrow to see the whole room!
