The challenge was framing it, I needed a weird size frame, at least 40" wide and no more than about 20" tall! I bought a $39 picture at Home Goods and ripped out the ugly picture and used the frame - it fit perfectly. I stretched and mounted the canvass on a foam board, pushing straight pins into the edge of the foam board all the way around it. It worked great. I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I also bought a small oil painting of Antigua, the town we spent 3 nights in, I think i paid $3 for it. The 8x10 canvas was nailed over a wooden frame. I detached the canvass from the wooden frame and mounted the painting on a foam board. Used a matt and frame I already had.
Hand woven pillow covers were everywhere in all colors and I found two that would go well on my couch downstairs. It turned it out they fit perfectly over my existing pillows so I didn't even have to buy pillow forms!
Table linens were everywhere and so tempting. My niece would have gone nuts - they were so inexpensive but I didn't have much room to bring back much more! I bought hand woven placemats and table runner. They turned out to be a perfect match for my dishes. I love them.
This is a beautiful hand embroidered table runner. I had no idea where I would use it but thought I would be able to find a place. It dresses up this old table nicely! Wish I could go back to Antigua!! Maybe one day I WILL! HA!
