We’ve been in our place for a year now and we just recently started to do some decorating. Partly because we just haven’t decided what we really want to do, partly because I was pregnant for most of the last year (that was completely distracting), and partly because the walls are big and tall. In the living room there is a railing/shelf thing that the previous owner installed so we’ve had little prints just kind of thrown up there and they looked cute for about a minute until they started to feel disorganized and clutter-y. Since my in-laws were coming out to visit the baby I decided it was the perfect time to spruce up the place, and finally make some decorating decisions.
Before we moved in I envisioned very large dark, moody, flowery, tall bush photographs on our main living room wall. If we had those types of bushes here in Denver I would go take some photographs of them, save my pennies to pay for nice color prints, convince my husband that very large photographs of flowers would look amazing (and not old-lady-like), and then that would be that – vision fulfilled!
Since we don’t have large flowering bushes here and since I didn’t want to spend a lot of money right now I went with my backup idea that I’ve got to admit, turned out pretty cool. I was able to give our living room a whole new look for only $27 – the cost of 3, 3×4 foot prints!
I created large engineer/draft prints of vintage stock photos, and each print only cost $9!
