The best part of a new house is decorating it, right?! Finding the perfect artwork can not only be difficult, but it can also be extremely expensive. Over the past few weeks, I have been on a hunt to find affordable artwork that shows our personality and style. I’m sharing everything you need to know to get to decorating!
Etsy Is Your Best Friend
When it comes to finding affordable artwork, Etsy is seriously the best place to go. Not only can you find artwork to fit into any style or budget, but there are so many options. It is also great to support small businesses and artists while you are at it! Here are the Etsy shops that I picked up a few pieces from!
If you are looking to just use some photography, try stock photos websites like Unsplash or Pexels. You can also choose to use your own photos to decorate your home! The best part of using your own photos or Etsy is that you can print the images for much cheaper! You can also check out Society6 or Desenio for affordable prints!
Have someone else print them for you
On Etsy, you can download some great photos at insanely affordable prices. If you pick up a great print that you love for $5 bucks, then you can print it for usually less than a dollar. I used Sharp Prints for all of the artwork in our home. Not only was the shipping impossibly fast, but it also was under $55 bucks to print 26 different images. I will definitely be using them from now on!
Ugh, frame prices!
The real kicker here is frame prices! They are expensive and to be honest, it sucks! Now that you have your perfect artwork, it is time to find frames for your pieces. Don’t get me wrong, you can easily find alternative ways to hang your photos. For me, I really love a regular ole’ frame.
A great tip to find affordable frames is to head to your local thrift store. You can replace the image in frames, or you may even fall in love with something you find there. Amazon has a great selection of frames that you can buy in bulk!
