On to Wall Decor...I have had to get creative. There is a lot of space to fill and I am on a budget. I hope one of my next house purchases will be a large piece of artwork for over the fireplace in the family room. But for now it is bare.
I have however filled some of the other walls in this space, I used four old frames that were originally purchased when my sisters and I lived together in the Museum District. We had this cute row house and my mom helped us decorate it!
The prints were dated and the frames were okay. Two of the frames had these hunter green mats which were terrible. I managed to find two white mats in my attic and a couple fabric scraps from my collection. I secured two more fabric pieces from my sister, Anne Hunter.
You can frame almost anything you want. I have framed more fabric, placemats, wrapping paper and kid's art!
I found a very traditional wooden framed mirror at the Goodwill last fall for $10. I quickly put it in my cart knowing it needed some spray paint for an instant make over. I thought for weeks about the color and ultimately went with a shade of green. I love how it turned out!
