When I first moved to NYC I was nearly penniless. Like many college students, every cent I earned went toward rent, tuition and tons of top ramen! To decorate my apartment I would repaint/recover furniture & lampshades found on the street, make floral arrangements from flowering trees in my neighborhood and enlarge vintage clip art images on the copy machine at my part time job. I would tape the images together and create huge clip art posters for my walls and I absolutely loved the way they looked. If I was lucky, sometimes I came across a refrigerator box and was able to mount the pieces on cardboard for an extra special look. I wouldn't trade that time in my life for anything. For this project I revisited my copy machine days, but this time I used 99c store frames for the separate pieces. Use what you have, my friends, and don't forget to
