I hate wall decor. I hate picking it; there are too many things to consider. You've got: color, size, weight, what do I hang it with? Will it leave a big hole in the wall? Am I gonna have to puddy over it and paint when we move? Is it gonna cover the light switch panel placed in the middle of the wall?
Oh. You don't have that last problem? Well, some crazy man who probably doesn't have one picture on a wall in his home did our electrical work and didn't think twice about putting our light switches in the middle of the walls. That's on my list of things to watch for in our next house...years down the road. (That and wider hallways. And lower ceiling bathrooms. And...)I digress...
We've lived in this house 2 1/2 years, and I've yet to hang much on these walls. I did manage to get a clock up (which never got "sprung forward" so I think I'll just wait til November so I don't have to "fall back"), a star, and a few various things from Hobby Lobby, etc. But I still have plenty of bare walls to fill.
I've seen lots of people who come up with nifty, easy DIY art ideas. Framing cool scrapbook paper in frames which were once ugly and then restored to something beautiful. Doing stuff with their kids pictures, handprints, etc. A huge collage of pictures. That's what I need to do I guess: art on a budget!
Got any more ideas? I'm all ears.
