DIY (and inexpensive !) statement art

Saturday, February 28, 2015

When I shared a few pictures of my living-room (there and there), I mentioned that the mini-gallery wall above the sofa was temporary. Well, it had been temporary for over 6 months now, so I had to find a better solution. The idea was to find or create a much larger art, without breaking the bank. And there it is now !
I came up with this idea of using a large picture, but divided into multiple frames. So I bought the cheapest clip-on frames possible at Dunelm and I started looking for a good black and white picture.When I saw this one of James Dean, I was sold ! Then I used this brilliant website called "The Rasterbator" to divide the picture. I could have enlarged it to fill the entire wall if I wanted too!
I think the result is edgy and contemporary, yet elegant. And I believe the entire "project" cost me about £25, and I can print any other image whenever/if get tired of this look.
Remember the living-room before ?
And now:
That's the picture from the listing before we moved in.
And there it is now:
I could just sit there and gaze at James ! Handsome and timeless James ... So what do you think ? Love it or hate it ?
