Can’t afford a Van Gogh or a Monet? You can still enjoy the beauty of these artists, and others, while paying budget-friendly prices. Posters are a great alternative if you can’t afford to buy original pieces. Just tack them to your wall, or buy special adhesive, and add an economical statement piece to add flavor to your room. Conversely, getting them framed can add a more professional edge to your decor.
Let’s face it: affordable furniture is often dowdy and plain. But, if you have an eye for art, or an instinct for the creative, there’s an easy fix: paint! Painting that old white Ikea coffee table can add a striking statement piece to your living room. Go easy with chevron stripes. Or add more detailed flourishes and designs. Kids love and are stimulated by exciting shapes and colors. Create one-of-a-kind pieces in your own backyard.
