Who says you have to pay a fortune to have interesting and compelling art in your home?
Like this wooden starburst mirror I found for our foyer. This thing has a huge wingspan, and packs a lot of punch, and for around forty beans, you kinda can’t beat it.

It’s the first thing to catch your eye as soon as you walk through the front door. And, where else do you want huge impact more, than the front door, to welcome your guests?
^This little hex DIY, was a thrift store find. With an investment of only a few dollars and an unused purse strap, this little ditty finished off our gallery wall in the living room, in two shakes.
Need something even more affordable? Magazine clippings. They’re free! Well, almost free. Before you poo-poo this idea, keep in mind a lot of the advertising and images used in campaigns and editorials, are highly styled, vibrant, and someone out there spent a pretty penny getting that shot printed, and in front of your eyes. All YOU need to do, is find the shot you like, and that fits your space, and you’re golden. I played around with a few ideas to polish off my master bedroom gallery wall.
To achieve this for yourself, grab your magazines, and rip out anything that catches your eye. Then, take the matte out of your frame and use that to hold over the image to find the sweet spot. You’d be surprised how much more rich an image can look, with just the right cropping!
I adore this shot and the way I cropped it, with just the feet showing, with all the super cute chairs, makes it so fun! Now, it feels like it has this story attached to it — not to mention, the colour palette was a perfect addition to the room.
Yep. There she sits on my side of the bed. I find industrial design so inspiring, so zoning in on this image of gorgeous chairs is right up my alley.
See what I mean? These are some seriously cheap options, that ANYONE can do. What about you — have any art solutions you care to share? I’d love to hear about it!
