Beautiful Artwork on a Budget

Thursday, July 30, 2020

If you're like me you probably want nice artwork for your home, but may not want to spend a ton on it.  I want to share a project I did almost five years ago during a One Room Challenge.  I had seen framed botanical prints that I loved, but they were more than I wanted to spend.  So I purchased a Cavallini wall calendar specifically to use it for art.  

These prints were originally around a TV in our previous home, but I knew I would use them again.  

I'm partial to bird prints, botanicals, and maps.  But you can also find calendars of vintage posters, maps, and various other natural curiosities.  The best part is that for about $20 you get 12 prints that can easily be framed. I've paired the prints with inexpensive $10 Ribba frames from Ikea. 

 I'll link below some Cavallini calendars from years past.  

For next year's Cavallini calendars, I found them for pre-sale over at Two Hands Paperie.  Let me know if you give this a try for artwork!


  1. Great idea for artwork! Calendar pages are pretty and easy to buy.

    1. Thank-you, and so true...just have to find a theme that you like!
