Thinking about giving your home a makeover? One of the easiest ways to improve the look of your home is to redecorate the walls. Rather than using traditional wall art, however, perhaps you should consider a more unique approach using one or more of the following.
Antique Sports Equipment
Whether it's an old tennis racket, baseball bat, hockey stick, etc., vintage sports equipment makes an excellent (and unique) wall decoration for the home. It has character that's simply not found in modern-day decorative pieces. But you might be wondering where exactly you can find antique and vintage sports equipment? Well, one place is thrift stores, which often sell them for a fraction of their original price. You can also find old sports equipment available for sale on classified ads like Craigslist.
Vinyl Wall Art
What is vinyl wall art and why should you use in your home? Vinyl wall art is exactly what it sounds like: artwork that's made of vinyl. This isn't just any ordinary vinyl, however. It features a self-adhesive backing, much like a sticker. You simply peel the protective cover off, after which you can apply it to your wall. Vinyl wall art is one of the easiest ways to decorate a wall. Best of all, you can find vinyl wall art available in countless different designs, including animals, phrases, quotes, objects, landscapes and more. Regardless of your personal taste, there's probably vinyl wall art out there to suit your preference.
If you have a knack for painting, perhaps you can create your own wall art using a mural. There's really no wrong way to create a mural. Using paint colors of your choice, fill the walls with a unique design .This can be something eclectic with no real central theme, or it can be a specific design. The general idea is to have fun and create a design that enhances the environment.
Are you a wine drinker? Well, perhaps you can save those corks for use in wall decorations. Using nothing more than wine bottle corks, you can create letters to place on the wall. For instance, you could create your initials using wine corks, displaying it either the living room or your bedroom. Simple glue the corks to some type of flat backing, such as a thin piece of wood, after which you can secure it to the wall.
