The frames were from Ikea for only $2.99 a frame! They are a light-weight frame with plastic instead of glass. When I purchased them they were red. I took the plastic out, and spray painted the frames white. Then I turned the paper insert backwards, so the white part of the paper was facing out. Using double sided tape, I then centered the 8x10 photos on the white paper before putting the frames back together and hanging them on the wall.
The pictures on the shelves were from our maternity sessions with Kingfish Photography. We took pictures announcing we were having twins at 12 weeks, pictures announcing their genders at 16 weeks, and pictures of my big baby bump at 30 weeks. I printed a few of my favorite pictures from those sessions from the Wal-Mart photo lab for $.15 a print.
All of the frames, the two shelves and all of the printed photos cost less than $50. I love using these photographs as art. They are a beautiful reminder off how blessed we really are.
