Making Kirkland's Look More Expensive

A few years ago I picked up these canvas pieces from Kirkland's on sale for $15 each.  Not a bad deal - problem was, they didn't look very expensive on the wall.  Custom framing was pretty pricey so when I found a solution in Hobby Lobby the other day, I was thrilled.

I decided to add a frame to make these look a little pricier.  I found one at Hobby Lobby for only $35 and it was perfect!  It even matched my Eiffel Tower painting frame (coming soon in a future post).  I used an exacto knife to cut the canvas off the back (be careful doing this, I accidentally cut myself) and then removed the inside of the other frame and replaced it with the painting.  The result: $50 artwork that looks much more pricey.
