There comes a moment in everyone’s life when they discover they have an empty wall (or two) glaring at them, regardless of who they are or what sort of design they enjoy.
Perhaps you recently relocated, got rid of some dated art, or are finally redecorating a neglected guest room.
Whatever the circumstance, if you’re looking for a budget-friendly yet stylish wall decoration option, you’ve come to the perfect spot.
1. Print historic maps
Printing out old maps and pictures from the Library of Congress might be a terrific option, depending on your decor and how much wall space you want to occupy.
What’s best? Over 20 million digital materials from the library are available to you for free. Send any file that appeals to you to a nearby print shop, and presto, your bare walls will now have some visual interest.
2. Reuse old calendars and books
Here’s another fantastic tip for obtaining distinctive artwork to decorate your walls: Make use of your favorite images from coffee table books or calendar pages.
3. Borrow from nature
We enjoy gathering juniper boughs, antlers, and pine cones to build wreaths. This strategy’s zero-waste decor is one of our favorite aspects. You can just put all of these wonderful pieces of nature back outside when you’re finished with them.
4. Go antiquing
If you’re not a big fan of natural components but want your wall design to be more three-dimensional, read on. In order to get some discounts on vintage wall décor, you might want to consider looking through an old bookshop, an antique store, or an estate sale.
5. Hire your kids
Encourage your artistically talented kids to make wall art for your house if you have any.
