Inexpensive Wall Art

I’m not a huge fan of art or pictures on my walls, more for the fact that I never know what looks good or what goes, and also because I don’t live in an art gallery or museum.  I’d rather hang pictures of my children, wall art, clocks, or useful items, etc.  But when I had these two nice frames left over from the “before” living room, I knew I needed to figure something out.  They previously had flower pictures in from Ikea that just weren’t cutting it anymore.  I want simplicity.  I also needed to tie in little ‘pops’ of black, so this is what I decided to do…

I found a cute saying that was already printed like that on the internet and printed it off, turned my flower picture backward, and double-stuck it to the back.  It’s even more fun to think that it was free!  And that I can change it out for different sayings every season!

Room view.  I knew I didn’t want two sayings, but I wanted to use two frames.  So I decided something simple would suffice.  Needless to say birds are the new craze, at least everywhere I look…and I like them!  So I googled bird silhouette images and came up with more than a handful.  I picked this one because of its simplicity, cut it out and double stuck it on:)  After seeing it all hung I am thinking I should go back and cut right around the bird so you don’t see the uneven square that I cut because I was a little too lazy to trek it upstairs to find my little paper cutter.  Whoops.  Maybe someday…or??? :)

So, go online and find yourself a cute little saying or picture and throw it in an old frame you got laying around.  Add a little pop of spring.  Put it on your gallery wall if you have so ventured into doing one!  Maybe even be so daring as to print it in a color!  A cheap, quick, and easy fix to add some visual and unique interest to your room!
