It`s easy to update living areas by putting a fresh coat of paint on your walls and paint doesn`t have to be just a solid color anymore. There are also all kinds of faux decorating techniques you can try such as sponging, ragging, faux marble, faux wood, faux animal prints, just to name a few. Hand painting a wall mural or a faux scene is another creative wall decorating idea to add originality and interest to your walls.
Another fun and easy item to use as wall art that can be found at many yard sales, thrift stores, junkyards, and antique stores are old windows and doors. Finding a vintage window can be an interesting way to add an old-world feel to any room. Using a door on a large wall can add something unexpected to the room. It`s fun to hunt around for cool and interesting doors and windows. Whatever your style, you can find something to make the room your own with decorative wall decor.
Stencils are a bit artsier than murals and can give your room a handmade look. I`ve seen some great stencils that look like rock walls with vines and ivy. If you are the least bit creative, then stencils will allow you to exercise that creativity to make a piece of wall art that you can enjoy every day as well as show off to your guests. Wall murals and stencils go with a variety of decorating themes including the old world, shabby chic, french country, and even some contemporary styles.
