5 Inexpensive Sources for Art

Filling your home with gorgeous can be expensive so I have lots of ideas for how to fill those walls without emptying your wallet!

1. Pinterest

I have mentioned this tip in other blog posts. Doing a simple Pinterest search for free downloadable art will offer a treasure trove of art options that won't cost you a dime. You can print your art at home on good quality art paper or have them inexpensively printed somewhere like Costco or Staples.

2. Etsy

I am a lover of all things vintage, and Etsy has a wide array of sellers that offer incredible inexpensive vintage art prints you can download to your computer that will make your home look like you filled it with high end art! I only spent $14 on the digital art for the basement makeover! Can you even?!

Beyond vintage prints, Etsy is a great place to look for any form of digital art on a budget. Here's a list of my favorite Etsy sellers

3. Family Photos

I don't always see big home bloggers fill their walls with family photos, but I absolutely love to display the people I love most in my home! Create an entire wall of different family photos or mix them in with other art. Want a bold way to display your family shots whether they were taken by a professional photographer or not? Have them all printed in black and white for a cohesive look like we did for our staircase!

4. Thrift Stores

You can find incredibly beautiful art prints in thrift stores, but it might take some patience. Don't be discouraged after only looking in one store. Good things come to those who thrift often!
