I am ready for another Copycat Challenge on April 26th hosted over at Debbiedoo’s!
I missed last month due to
frustrating stomp my foot down computer technical issues so I am now anxious to link up for this month.
I love this challenge, it has been so much fun in the past.
Here is my inspiration for April:

Restoration Hardware Magazine
I thought these alphabet canvas frames were so cute but for a whopping price tag of $319 for the set…
Ummm, No Thank You.
Surely I could whip up a similar version just right for Buttercup’s room.
I first headed over to the drugstore and purchased two sets of alphabet flashcards and gathered up some foam boards that I had leftover from other projects. They were drawn on but that’s okay, I am going to cover them anyway!
I sorted out the cards and then used spray glue to adhere them to the foam boards. Very easy!
I used a few of the frames that I purchased from garage sales last fall and just popped the foam boards into place secured by some clear packaging tape on the back.
Cute, but I was still not satisfied with the final product. I then decided to spray the frames in off white and distress them a bit.
Ahhhh, much better in creamy white. And Buttercup loves them in her room!
Here is a recap:
Restoration Hardware Version: $319 (and don’t forget about shipping!)
My Version: $5
