Hi! I’m Holly, from My Sister’s Suitcase. My sister Nat and I have been blogging for a little over 2 years, and we like to share simple DIY projects, home decor, gift ideas, printables, and more!

We love Kristen and look forward to being a part of her Decorating with Pictures Series every year. As big Project Life fans, we are always looking for simple ways to document life with our families and get those pictures off our computers so we can enjoy them!

A few weeks ago, I had a local photographer and friend, Chelsey Eddins, take a few pictures of my kiddos for Valentine’s Day. I wanted to display one of the photos in our Family Room, since that is where we spend the majority of our time together. I didn’t want to spend very much, but I wanted to create something that would make a big impact in the room. So, I already had this huge frame I got from our GAP store when it closed down last year. The dimensions of the frame are 36″ x 36″…. perfect to try out a black and white engineering print of the kids. Here’s the before and after:

I gave the frame a makeover with copper leaf gilding, and then I added the engineering print from Staples.   It cost me less than $20 for the entire project and I’m loving the final result!
Come over to our blog for the full tutorial on how I edited the picture, ordered my engineering print, and adding the finishing copper leaf effect to the frame. It’s such an easy way to incorporate a touch of the copper trend into my decor! And can I tell you how much I love looking up at those sweet faces when I’m at my desk?

My friends! Thanks so much for sharing this great project! Love it, and love you two!If you’ve missed any of the posts from the Decorating with Pictures Series, check them out HERE or click on the image below.
