Original Art on a Budget
I am just putting the finishing touches on my master bedroom and the remaining decor budget is devoted towards acquiring original art; nothing more than $50 per piece is the goal. Not an easy feat.
I wanted a small painting to hang to the left of a large mirror that takes up most of the wall. The artists on etsy.com never fail to offer soulful paintings that fit a slim decor budget.
Portraits Set the Mood
Artist Britney Jette’s portrait work caught my eye and now one of her paintings helps establish a happy, relaxed mood in the space. I love supporting these talented, independent artists and would much rather give them my hard-earned decorating dollars than to a big box store. Thank you, Britney!
Go Big in a Small Space
For larger original work on a shoestring, look for paintings or drawings on artist paper instead of canvas. But finding a frame to match is often more expensive than the painting itself. Check out this cool DIY gallery frame, which was a design game changer.
