Paris Map - Z Gallerie Style.

Remember my inexpensive Paris map art?  If not, we framed a piece of wrapping paper from the Paper Source that was less than $4.00 in a cheap Ikea Ribba frame. 



Well imagine my surprise when I saw this at Z Gallerie the other day.  (Excuse the crappy iphone pics.)   The Z Gallerie version is substantially smaller because it doesn't have the thick mat, but otherwise, it's exactly the same! 


The price was $59.95 -- double what we paid for our "DIY" map!  

 
I actually like ours better, not only because it was cheaper, but because of the matting and its overall larger size.  Note to self:  If I like a piece of framed art at Z Gallerie, double check that Paper Source doesn't have the same wrapping paper that can be framed for much cheaper!

Hope y'all are having a great week!

  1. I don't like Z Gallerie's at all! That really looks like you just slapped some paper into a frame. The matting makes SUCH a difference. I freaking love mats.
