For me, bare walls are like that sound that finger nails make as they're raking across a chalk board. Well maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but it's pretty painful to see. With all the great colors and inexpensive wall art ideas out there, why not show your walls a little love?
One quick, wallet-friendly way to spruce up boring bare walls is to create a photo gallery. Hanging clusters of frames is pretty easy to do and creates an instant focal point in the room. Check out these photos from my inspiration files.
Framed vintage magazine covers make great wall art. Search thrift stores or ebay for vintage fashion magazines, then frame the covers and voila! Chic, unique and cheap artwork.
Use a bold color on the wall. Then spray paint empty frames in a color that contrasts the bold wall color.
No need for expensive art. Empty frames are super cheap and can be found at thrift stores and fleamarkets. The style of the frames don't have to match at all. Painting mistmatched frames one color makes for a unified and more cohesive look.
Here a chunky framed convex mirror against a striped wall is surrounded by a grouping of mixed styled frames. The look works since they're all painted one color.
