In a decorating funk? Or just did some renovating and now have a big blank space for with which you have no idea what to do? We have a few creative and practical ideas for you that will help show off your style and ingenuity without costing a fortune. 

1) Collect 5-7 frames of different sizes and textures from local shops or markets. Ikea usually has a great variety of frames at reasonable prices as well. Spray paint them all a bright accent colour which will stand out against your walls but match some of your other decor. Arrange into a cool pattern and voila!

2) Keep organized and stylish by creating your own dry-erase board decal. Simply find a large picture frame and spray paint to a colour you like. Then find a fabric pattern or wall paper pattern you like. Cut to the size of the frame and smooth it out behind the glass. Pop the backing back in and hang!
