Cheater Pirate Art

This is an easy way to get cute artwork in your kids room.  I ordered wall decals and decided they were "too abundant" for the walls in this shared bedroom.  My two little guys have a lot of stuff in there and I am not a fan of clutter.  (Although I have so much clutter.)
I have had these 10 X 10 frames for years.  I actually bought them at Marshall's with some weird mouse pictures in them.  I have painted over them a few times.  First, they were little bear pictures, then cowboys, now pirates.  The decals are  RoomMates peel and stick wall decals (Treasure Hunt) from Amazon for under $15. 
 I started with a blank white background, if your frames are new, just use the backing, the cardboard part.  I had to buy poster board, cut it to size and painted the white or yellow onto the center.  I placed the pirate where I wanted him, then added some more paint around him, then some of the phrases and decals.  I used craft paint to paint the border and the that's it! 

Once I hung them, I added some of the RoomMates around the pictures and in different area in the room.
Thanks for looking!

    Poring through old BH&G issues we found your beautiful staircase which we plan to copy. Our entryway is black marble with white trim so they will complement nicely. Thanks so much for this great idea!!
