DIY Large Scale Wall Photo

I have this long blank wall on my living room, with no idea what to put there. So I decided I needed to place a large scale piece. When I found out that Office Depot have Industrial Prints for $5; I immediately wanted to create a large scale wall photo to place on my empty long wall.

The size of the print is 24 x 42 and usually costs $5 in matte (black & white) but I got it for $3 ;). Its their largest print and if you want to print in color and glossy it will cost a lot more than that.

Just save your photo on a USB Drive; the clerk will open your photo and print it out w/no extra charge. Make sure your photo is already in {black and white} format and in high resolution!

For the frame; I bought this poster frame at Walmart for $16. I spray painted it with white paint because I didn’t like how the black frame looked.

Total cost of project $ 19!

I used a little spray adhesive  to re-apply the plastic cover of the frame, since I removed it to paint it white.

P.S My wall colors are actually a little grayer and the frame is way bigger than what it seems:)

I will be adding this particular wall photo frame to Aries Room and replacing it with a new Large Scale Wall Photo Frame in the living room. You can print out various photos and exchange them every now and then based on your look or mood!

If you have any questions, leave a comment and will get back to you asap.

Linking to these parties.

    Stephanie - Wowsa! That is a cool idea. Thanks for the heads up on how to get it done. Such a great price too. To really fill a large wall, wouldn’t it be cool to crop a picture into three separate pictures enlarge them and put them all in a row? I might just do that :)ReplyCancel

      Angie - Hi Bailey! I couldn’t find it online either. You have to go to the store directly and ask for the industrial prints. They don’t have them posted online.ReplyCancel

    Nancy - I love this idea and have prepared my jpg file to take to Office Depot. But I am not finding any poster frames in that size. When I enlarged your photos I see that your poster frame is not 42 inches either. Did you have to cut your print or did you have it printed at 36 inches wide?ReplyCancel

    Anne - This is a great Idea. I also have a very large (two story great room) wall that has nothing on it as of right now and I have been hemming and hawing about what to place there. I love that this art is so inexpensive!ReplyCancel

    Maria Lopez - Cool,pretty and easy to make, this idea is not only good for the wall but also great way to cover up some spots in the room. Family portrait or any beautiful scenery could also applicable for this. I can’t wait to try this at home.ReplyCancel
