Look what I found… 1 piece of stylish art and 1 piece of free artwork
I have these shoes – not YSL, but a Lands End pair (way less expensive). When I saw this print made by Jessica Rowe, I had to have it.
I placed it in a Walmart BHG white frame and hung it on the memo board that hangs in my studioffice.
It makes me happy – I love fashion, I love art, and best of all I love supporting artists.
The peony print under it was an Etsy find, too. I do not think it is available anymore though. I have had it for over a year.
Where to Find Free Art for Your Walls
Another way I like to find art…is for free.
When I was out in Des Moines for the BHG Makeover Madness Final 4 challenge, I picked up this magazine in the hotel lobby thinking I would read it on the plane ride home.
Flipping through, I came upon this map. I love maps, especially colorful ones like this that can be used to decorate – or to wallpaper a room.
I cut it out and framed it in a thrift store frame I had. EZ and free! Now I have a little token from my travels – sort of a souvenir.
10 Free Framable Wall Art Ideas
Images in magazines are not the only place to find free art to hang on your walls. Use a mat inside the frame or leave plain on any of the items in the list below.
Hang only one piece of free framed art by itself or hang a collection of the same type of image to fill an empty wall gallery style.
1. A map or collection of maps
2. Menu from a fave resturant
3. Fabric, gift wrap, or wallpaper
4. Post cards or greeting cards
5. A collection of stamps
6. Sheet music of a favorite song
7. A vintage hankie
8. DVD covers of your favorite movies
9. A collection of stamps
10. Recipes cut out from a cookbook
These are just a few items that you may have already have on hand or can get for free to create affordable artwork for your walls.
Look around you…I am sure you can add to the list.
