These days, you don`t have to go to salvage yards or dumps to find this type of wall decor. In fact, you can buy new items that are made to look like old architectural pieces. My personal favorite is wrought iron pieces that look like old gates or fences. These go with a wide range of decorating themes and look great on your walls.
One of my favorite ways to decorate the wall is by using architectural elements. By this, I mean old doors, wrought iron gates, corbels, porch pieces – anything that you might normally find on the outside of the house can add depth and interest to your inside walls. When it comes to architectural elements, the more wear the piece has and the chippier the paint, the better! This aging and wear give character to the piece and adds interest.
Wall treatments can be as detailed or as simple as you want them to be. Consider the time you have, drying time, cost of supplies, and skills needed when thinking of what you might want to do. As you`ve seen on the do-it-yourself shows, nothing is impossible and there are a lot of shortcuts that can be utilized if time is of the essence.
