Picture this: you’ve spent the past month designing your dream space. New paint on the walls and ceiling, changed out that light fixture, you added a new rug, but yet your ‘dream’ room is still missing something. But what? You turn to your favorite Pinterest board scrolling through home decor when you notice, all of your favorite rooms have curtains, art, plants, etc.
Today I’m going to be sharing with you where I find all of my budget friendly art.
Adding art spaces to a space is must, its like adding icing to a birthday cake. Not only is a must but it adds a great deal of visual appeal.
I like to shop on Etsy for most the prints in my house. Almost every picture you’ll see in my home is from there. Not only does Etsy have a wide range of prints (beach, mountains, cactus, nursery, animals, you name it), but the prices are always amazing. All of the prints that I have bought have been under $10. Most shops even offer a discount if you purchase 2 or more prints from them. After you buy your print, download it to your computer and have it printed off at a store near you. I don’t like wait for my prints, so I usually have them printed off at my local Walmart. They even print 11×14’s same day!
Paper (Scrapbook Paper, Cards, Calendars, Etc)
In addition to Etsy, I also like to stop by speciality paper stores to pick up neat patterned paper or cards that have a beautiful design on the cover to frame as well. Paper Source is one of my favorite places to find beautiful paper, usually you can find large sheets for under $6. Add a Target or a Goodwill frame and you have a lovely piece of art ready to be showcased in your home.
PS. Don’t forget about calendars! For my daughters room I used this years Rifle Paper Co. World Traveler Calendar to add some color and design to her bookshelves. And instead of using picture frames, I picked up some clipboards for $1.99 at Target to display them on.
Hobby Lobby, Target, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx
If your looking cheap already framed art, Hobby Lobby, Target, Marshall’s, and TJ Max are a must. I usually check Hobby Lobby and Target first. Hobby Lobby due to their great sales and Target is my go to for anything and everything.
And there you have it, my “Go To’s” for affordable art. Below I’ve linked my favorite frames from Target, in addition to some of my favorite Etsy prints. Be sure to tag me on Instagram if you decide to use any of these in your home. I’d love to see what they look like in your spaces!
Have a great weekend!
