Salvage pieces that have meaning to you and your family. This old storefront sign is ultra charming but also tells a story of days gone by. Unleash your inner artist by transforming everyday objects, like paint chips, books or discarded branches, into pieces of art. Or, try your hand at one of our fun and easy DIY painting ideas.
Install floating shelves and display hardcovers, small sculptures, and other odds and ends. Why hide your fine china in the cabinet when you can show it off? Use wire plate hangers to display your favorite dishes and serving platters. Sconces add an extra source of light without taking up space on the floor or a side table. Choose an eye catching design that doubles as a wall sculpture to bring in light and style.
That means the center of your wall art area is about 60 inches from the ground. What if you are hanging living room wall art over furniture like a sofa or sofa table? Hang the artwork so the bottom edge is 6 to 8 inches from where the table or sofa back ends. Once you have an idea of a general spot, frame out the area with painters tape to visualize the spot.
Paint or stain it to match your rooms color scheme. Pack a powerful punch on a large wall by hanging a colorful tapestry. Choose a pattern that complements your rooms design. Round mirrors are hot right now and work well with multiple design styles. They are a great way to fill a wall without adding color or business. Move over, gallery walls!
