When Erin emailed us to share her insanely cool DIY art project (all the way from Spain!), we couldn’t wait to pass it along. It’s so creative it not only made us excited, it actually made us hungry. Here’s her letter:
I just discovered your site today from a link at AT. It immediately became one of my permanent favorites! I’ve been inspired by the thrifty makeovers you’ve featured and wanted to share one of my own. My hubby & I live in an apartment in Spain. We’re only here temporarily and our apartment is owned by the organization that we work for so we’re not even allowed to paint the mint green walls. Last week after finally becoming weary of blank walls, I succumbed to the crafty bug and created some “artwork” for our bedroom. My mom brought me some Mod Podge when she came to visit, so I did my first decoupage project using laser prints of something I threw together in Photoshop and a large pizza box. I’d been saving the (clean!) pizza box for several months under the conviction that I could use it for something creative. The Browning poem I used is one that we had on our wedding invitations, so it means a lot to us personally. I’m pretty proud of how it turned out and wanted to share! Thanks for all the inspiration! – Erin
Here’s Erin’s arsenal of unexpected supplies:
And the finished product:
Gotta love wall art that’s personalized and pizza-inspried. Mmmm.

This is an awesome project! I may have to do this. First I have to find the perfect wall.
What a marvelous idea!! Thanks for sharing! Happy weekend!
Now you’ll have two visitors and not just me from Spain! I’m loving this DIY project, but thinking how cool it’d look on a bigger “canvas”. I think it’d look great at a really big scale, like four pizza boxes together… Finding a wall big enough for it would be another thing, though.
How fun! Love it!
Wow!! What a great idea, Erin! You are very creative! I bet your husband is proud of your crafty and cheap DIY projects!
I am very proud of Erin (I am her husband). I am always impressed with projects she tackles (and their outcome). I checked out your site when Erin brought my attention to it. I like your nice inviting style.
Being Erin’s mom, of course I’ve always been proud of her. This just goes to show how creative she is. I love the idea and am glad she found a way to use the Mod Podge. Wonderful project!
Erin this is so awesome! Way to stick it to the man and put something awesome on the walls. Love it so much!!!

Aww, just looking back through old posts, and I love that this one is from my wedding day! Wonderful poem for the day I got hitched in a tropical storm. :-)
