Two of my favorite things are home decor and cheap things. Though the two things don’t always combine easily (coughpotterybarncoughcough), there are ways to get creative and get one-of-a-kind artwork when you head to the thrift store.
Here’s a list of thrift store wall decor makeovers I’ve done.
Don’t like the artwork? Paint over it! And the frame too while you’re at it.
Find a shape you like and adjust the finish to suit your tastes. Just don’t actually taste it. Paint is gross and not very nutritious.
Love the frame, hate the artwork? Paint your own and display your masterpiece proudly.
Of course, you don’t always have to do a complete makeover of the entire painting…sometimes, just tweaking the frame makes a big difference! Which brings us to item number quatro.
Find a large frame and make it the artwork! If that isn’t “meta,” I don’t know what is.
Find a painting you kinda/sorta/mostly like? Verify that it isn’t a missing Rembrandt, and then paint over it until you love it!
As you can tell, I have little to no wall space left in our teeny apartment. What to do, what to do!?! The obvious solution would be to skip the thrift, but it’s an addiction, I tell you. What unique/easy artwork have you seen lately?
