Wall Art, Revisited. 3 Ways To Decorate Your Walls for Under $100

I had the extremely un-pleasurable experience of moving twice in five months. (Thank You Hurricane Sandy, for blowing out our boiler; and Thank You to my apathetic/piece of crap/ slumlord landlord for not giving a shit for 30+ days…) To say the very least, it was awful.

So when it all was said and done, we found a new apartment 3 blocks away. When we finally got settled, I was determined to make it pretty and decorate as soon as I possibly could.

However there was one problem, we had more wall space then I ever thought I could have. And although having [wall] space is amazing, it is at the same time a problem, because we didn’t have enough pictures to decorate with, or let alone, money to buy anything.

So, we kind of had to improvise. And actually, I’m kind of proud of what we came up with…

Wall Space #1 3D ART
