I read about this little trick over at Little Green Notebook a few years back when I was looking for ways to fill our white apartment walls. We can paint our walls now, but I still want to look at more than solid space. We have a lot of great prints, including these bad boys:
Sometimes you need to fill more space that a poster takes up and sometimes it's hard to find artwork that can make that happen. So the tip over a Little Green Notebook is to take your own photograph to FedEx and have them print it using their large format blueprint printer. It costs a few bucks and spits out a nice big image. LGN mounts the image on a thick foam board, but I used a big Ikea frame I had waiting for a moment like this.
