Inexpensive Wall Art

One common mistake homeowners make in their design is failing to decorate their walls. Bare walls make a space feel unfinished and cold. Let's be honest, art can get expensive. Even framed art from your favorite home store. 

Adding some pizazz to your walls doesn't have to cost a fortune. Here are some of my favorite ways to add interest to your space without spending a lot of money.

1.  Use your child's art work. Frame finger paintings, drawings or school art work for a heartfelt display. Group items together for a gallery effect, or just hang one work of art by itself. Use a mat for another layer of interest.

2.  Frame scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, wallpaper scraps or fabric for a graphic display.

3.  Use your own vacation photos. Either mat and frame them in a group or alone or have them printed onto canvas.

4.  Use your dishes.  Display your china or your thrift shop finds. Use all one kind in varying sizes or mix it up with different colors and patterns.

5. Create your own masterpieces.  Tape and paint a canvas, use a stencil or find a creative way to reuse all those left over paint chips.
