Purchasing new art for your home, even prints, can be very expensive. I prefer the lower cost and the unique look of antique items for some of my wall art. With a little imagination it is easy to create unique art.
In this picture, my sister has used an antique quilt humg on the wall from a shelf with a rod. She displays other antique items on the shelf. I think it looks terrific and it brings a lot of color into the room.
In this picture, an antique frame is used to highlight an original pastel drawing of me that my mother had done when I was a child. You can easily find antique frames at flea markets and antique malls to frame your own family photographs or your own art or your child's art work.
In my kitchen I have a blue and white theme. I used a grouping of flow blue plates over the window and a grouping of graniteware on another wall.
As you have seen, if you use a little imagination, you can create really unique pieces of art for your home.
Please comment to let me and other readers know how you have used antique items as wall art.
