Does anyone else torture themselves by wandering through West Elm knowing that you'll never be able to justify spending that much on home decor yet still wanting everything in the store?

So instead, I DIY-ed a budget version that worked for my purpose! Maybe not the type of frame you'd want if you were looking to invest in something for years and years to come, but definitely a simple budget solution for those wanting that mid-century modern look.
