Hanging With Style

Have you gotten tired of your "wall art" looking the same throughout your home? You don't want each wall to look monotonous and lack interest. Here are some ideas that may help you add variety to your walls!

A backpack basket with brown and white plates mirrored on either side.

An old gate propped on a table or it could be hung......
My husband thought the weight of it might pull the sheet rock off!!! Not risking that!!!

Antique ceiling tiles paired with a simple square basket.

An old pine mirror surrounded by white ironstone.
A platter on top and matching plates on the sides.

A shelf found at an antique store adorned with old leather books, a small plate, and family photos. A hand colored lithograph is propped on top.

Two old doors with distressed mirrors flanking dining room windows.

A large round basket hung above a server.

A twig garden trellis holds prints over a sofa for a unique look.

Or it can just be hung alone...

Make it your own

Have you ever been house hunting and had the hardest time seeing yourself in a particular home? Sometimes, the current owner's "personal style" is so overbearing that you can't see past it. As a real estate agent, I have run into this time and time again. I recently convinced my parents to look past the "fru-fru" murals painted throughout the downstairs of a home for sale, and focus on the great bones and layout of the house. Below are some photos showing how they transformed the house into their own. Don't let a little mural scare you. Paint can work like a magic eraser.
