“Have you hung the pictures yet,” my friend would ask every week.
“No, not yet,” I would reply.
It was my friend’s theory that once the pictures were on the walls, you were officially moved in.
That was six years ago this summer. My walls have been decorated and redecorated more times than I can count.
And I’ve learned a few tricks in the process:
Save money with DIY art.
Everything from children’s artwork, to your favorite family photo to free images online provide inexpensive options for covering those bare walls.
Art with no frame? No problem. In just a few easy steps, you can frame it yourself.
Most people hang their pictures and artwork too high. Follow this simple formula to get it right every time.
Now, let’s talk about windows.
Linens make great curtains. Turn a flat sheet into two panels.
Sheers are another inexpensive option.
Better Homes & Gardens sells a very affordable line of curtains at Walmart.
Or you can go for a more custom look and sew your own window treatments, or have them made for you.
Visit my Windows and Walls board on Pinterest for more inspiring and affordable ideas.
See you in class,
