5 Resources for Affordable Artwork
1. Poster Art
One day I was fantasy shopping in one of my favorite stores, ZGallerie, when I noticed a poster print. It looked like a vintage poster that was framed. Although I loved it, I was really looking for an oversized piece to hang on a wall in my living room. The print I saw was approximately 24″ x 18″. I made note of the name of the artist on the print and came home to scour the internet to find it in a much larger size.
I stumbled onto a poster site, AllPosters, that had several poster prints. I even found the print that I was looking for. affordable artwork
2. Big Box Store Art
I have actually been surprised to find art pieces at stores like Target, Walmart & Ikea. They actually have a large selection (even more online) of on-trend art pieces. The next time you are in HomeGoods, Tuesday Morning or TJ Maxx check out their selection. They have pieces that would fit in just about any decor and at very reasonable prices.
3. Thrift Stores
I am sure you have heard stories on the news about people who discovered a long lost priceless art piece at a garage sale for $10. That would be great but sadly is rare. affordable artwork
However, one of my favorite pieces on my art wall is a print that I found at the Goodwill. Now it’s not a fine work of art by any means, but it has the colors I decorate with and complements the design of my living room.
