Neither do I. It drives me crazy. We’ve been in our house nearly a year, and there are walls that just make me draw a blank–pun fully intended. I don’t know about you, but for me it’s so difficult to figure out what kind of artwork to put up that will not only look decent but also not break the bank.
I’ll let you in on a secret (I really divulge too many of my secrets to you guys) that will allow you to get something on those walls at a reasonable price and with a pretty cute look. And it’s easy! Not as easy as buying something from a store, but whatever, with your lazy behind.
Step 1: Buy one or more art canvases. I like to buy them either on sale or with a coupon ’cause I’m frugal like that.
Step 2: Go to a fabric store that offers remnants at discounted prices. My hometown has a fabric store, Sir’s, where I can usually find some really cute fabrics for $1.99 or $2.99 a yard.
Step 3: Take your staple gun and staple the darn fabric over the darn canvas. You’re done!
Discount canvas + discount fabric + a little elbow grease = Perfection! Or at least, if not perfection, less muttering at the wall like a lunatic.
