Wall art is essential to making your new home feel…well, homey! But it can be expensive. Check out this not-so-expensive recipe for DIY dragged paint wall art by mrkate.
You may have one in your house, lurking in your living room, or looming in the hall – the big, blank wall with nothing on it. What do you do?

Deciding on art for your new digs can be both a challenge and a hit to your wallet, but it doesn’t have to be. Before you go pouring over art galleries, take a note from realtor.com with these helpful ways to obtain obscure pieces of art for your home!
Sure, it could simply house a lamp, an alarm clock, your phone charger and a book. But isn’t your bedside table worthy of a more elegant, relaxing vibe? The answer is yes!
You’ve purchased your new home and are eager to settle in, but you’re a little lost on the interior design of the place. How low are you supposed to hang a chandelier over a dining table? A picture frame is supposed to be hung how high?
Put aside your IPods, CDs (if you still have any…), and your parents’ old cassette tapes, we’re going way back to the record. While some may think listening to records is obsolete with the advent of technology, there is still quite a market for these old musical devices, with a growing love of vintage shops nationwide. But records aren’t being used simply for their functionality anymore, they have a designer aspect that is pretty sweet.
So if you are one of those who enjoy collecting records, or if you just have some lying around…or even if you have never owned one in your life…you’ll love record décor. If you’re in the final group, head down to your local vintage music shop or thrift store and you’re bound to score some goods.
Just so you know what we mean by record styling, here are some images to make you fall in love.
