How to make your Home Art Gallery

Tuesday Tips and Tricks Feature: How to make an in-home Art Gallery

I've been trying to think of an easy way to afford and display some fine art in our home.  I want it to revolve so that we have new works to see frequently and still be reminded of past works.

 The answer for us?  An art book that covers quite a bit of art history.

The other tool? A "cookbook" holder.  Yup, it's not in my kitchen, it's in my front room next to the big beautiful black beast-aka the piano-holding our book open to the art for the day.
It's an easy way to be inspired and learn something new each day.  
I'm a fan of those words: Easy. Inspired. Learn.

If you have little artists that live at your house, you will want to check out the Peanut Gallery from the archives too :)

That's a great idea.

I saw on a home makeover kind of show that a really cheap way to decorate is to get one of the big coffee table books with whatever type of art you prefer, cut out the pictures and then get nice frames for them. Adding a mat makes it look even fancier. I remember always seeing those types of books on the clearance racks, too! You could also use them for decoupaging. I can't wait to get back to the states and return to the craft stores!
