Now might be a good time to turn your thoughts back to those wall decorating ideas you had in mind before the kids broke up from school and your plans got derailed with busy summer-time activities.
If you really want to make a huge statement in your room, then you might want to opt for a wall stencil or mural. Some of these murals can take up the whole wall and have a realistic look to them. I love the ones that look like french doors opening up into a beautiful garden or view of the sea.
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.
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.
