My Botanical Themed Bedroom With Antiques

September 16, 2022

Photo of repurposed frame botanical butterfly wall art.
Last weekend I attended the annual Little Falls (Minnesota) Arts & Craft Fair.

It was my very first trip to the craft fair. I purchased the botanical butterfly wall art above at the fair from Salvage Sisters - A Repurposed Store.  The panoramic style frame contained distressed paper with a bee and several different black butterflies, along with plant sprigs on the sides. The design was most likely created with rubber stamps and ink. The perimeter (mat) of the frame was created with distressed book pages, torn into varied and uneven pieces.

I love this poster!  It's a Cavallini Decorative Wrap Poster - Houseplants.   My magnetic poster hanger is available HERE.  

The poster is also being displayed on a bedroom wall.
