No matter where you live, whether it is in an apartment or a home that you own, you want your walls to look good. When money is tight, it can be challenging to find pieces that work within your decor’s theme and within your budget.
Apartment artwork is especially challenging, as oftentimes you cannot nail things into the wall. The need for lightweight, but attractive budget artwork is even more apparent. The ideas below will help you get your walls looking great and keep your budget in check.
This method of painting has been made famous by artists throughout the twentieth century. It is easy to do and takes very little money to create. Start with a large sheet of poster board in white or another color that would match your decor better. Use leftover paint from crafting projects or wall painting, and drizzle or splatter it on the poster board. Use colors that match your room’s color scheme to get the best results. Do not worry about a design, simply let loose and splatter away.
It is advisable to put down a large sheet of plastic and do the project outdoors instead of in your apartment if at all possible. To hang the dried painting up, frame it with a colorful ribbon that has been hot glued to the edges and use removable sticky tack to adhere it to the wall. When you are ready to redecorate or move, it will be easy to remove and take with you.
