When preparing our house for sale, we needed to de-personalise. The first thing to go was our family photos, well most of them, and in their place we needed art, but art on a budget, to fill the walls without breaking the bank. We need both traditional and contemporary art to place in the kids rooms and on our living space walls, and in the process found many great sources of budget art to share.
5 Places To Find Budget Art
Etsy is hands down my favourite way to source anything handmade. I am not a crafty sort myself, so finding craft at a great price, that is unique is always a winner in my eyes. Etsy is a great source of prints, both custom and ready made, some that can be downloaded and printed to your requirements pop it in a frame and you’re away, while others can be couriered quickly and easily ready for your walls.
Ikea actually have a fantastic range of wall art. From ready to hang pieces to prints and frames, Ikea is an inspirational place to find budget art. The frames on the bug art, are from Ikea, while the mechanical piece is a ready hang piece from Ikea as well. The bugs were drawn for us buy our amazingly talented friend.
Kmart shocked me with it’s range of budget art. They have a great range of ready to hang wall art pieces that would be sure to please most of us and terrific prices. We have used a lot of Kmart wall art in our kids bedrooms, but this abstract piece above I would use in my own bedroom. Love it!
Wall Art Prints
Sometimes we don’t have the time or the desire to shop, and online shopping is the choice at hand. Wall Art Prints, have a fantastic range or canvasses for sale on their website with easy delivery options, to your door. I found a large range on their website to suit almost all home decore styles.
