I don’t like to hang a lot of things on my walls, but I do love a nice gallery wall. I also love finding art that matches the room’s Décor, but also stands out. Since art can be costly and I don’t have a lot of money, here are a few of my favorite ways to find cheap art that looks great.
1. Make it yourself
I’m not artistic in the least. I cannot draw or paint. What I can do is make my own subway art on Ms Word. Type it out, change the colors and fonts, print it, and frame.
2. ETSY and Pinterest are your friends
This gallery wall is in my daughter’s nursery. We purchased two of the prints from ETSY, while the other two were found on Pinterest. All were printed by us, here at home. Sources listed here.
3. Botanical prints: widely available on the Internet
I love, love, love botanical prints. If it weren’t for trying to have a little variety in the house, I’d have them in every room. They are widely available on the Internet, and ate usually free. I get most of mine from The Graphics Fairy. There are a lot of them on Pinterest as well.
4. Catch the sales
We also shop sales at Hobby Lobby and Kirklands. I’ve been known to window shop, find things I like, and wait until they come on sale. It takes some patience but it’s kind of fun.
5. Use photographs to create an interesting gallery
Sites like Shutterfly have frequent specials and offer cheap photo printing. Walmart photo and Walgreens offer cost effective photo printing as well. I personally love pictures and we have them all over our house.
