Cheap Art for Reid’s Room {Jeep!}

Dear Friends,
I finally decided on a very loose transportation theme for Reid’s room.   I want the design to carry through for the next several years so I passed on the temptation to do strictly construction vehicles.  For him, the next best thing is a Jeep or a race car.

There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t spot a Jeep on the road.  It could be a Jeep Wrangler or a Jeep Grand Cherokee.  He knows the Jeep look.

I looked online and anything Jeep- related is few and far between.

So, on a recent Sunday we stopped by the Jeep lot before they opened.  While the hubby stayed in the car with the kids, I ran around snapping pictures with my iPhone.

I found my two favorites and then added a couple of filters to brighten them up.  They were taken using my Camera+ app.  I love that it has so many filters to choose from.

I downloaded them to my computer and then had them printed on canvas at my local Walgreen’s.  I have never had anything printed on canvas there and I have to say I’m super impressed.  I used a 40% coupon making each canvas $20-something.   I uploaded the photos online and picked the finished product up 2 hours later.  How crazy is that?

The canvases are an inch thick which was a nice surprise.  I chose the 16 by 20 size because the picture quality went down if I did anything too much larger.  I did resize the pictures in Photoshop Elements first.  I did it according to the sizing guidelines on the Walgreen’s site.

I’m really happy with the Jeep art!  Easy and inexpensive – can’t get much better than that!
