Creating a focal point on the largest wall in your living room is a wonderful way to draw in the eye and create a warm space. While hanging a large piece of art may be ideal, it’s not always financially feasible. If you’re on a budget but want a unique, eye-catching feature for your living room, try this geometric art project using nothing but frames!
Step One: Gather Your Frames
The wonderful thing about using frames as art is that you can create virtually any style with them, as they come in so many different shapes, colors, textures, and sizes. Get a sense of how large you want your whole art piece to be and put some thought into the kind of style you’d like to create. Once you’ve decided on these two things, head over to Frame Warehouse. We’ll help you pick out the perfect collection of frames for your feature wall.
If you’re going to take the DIY route to picking out frames, keep these things in mind:
- Frames similar in color and texture can create a sleeker, more polished look
- Frames that complement one another in color and have different textures can create a sophisticated yet eclectic look
Step Two: Lay Out Your Design
To avoid putting too many holes in your wall, it’s a good idea to lay out your design on the floor or kitchen table before you start hanging your frames. Start with your larger frames first, then create clusters of your smaller frames around and within the larger ones. Remember to be creative—there’s no right or wrong way to do this! Try overlapping frames and grouping different colors and textures until you get a layout that you’re happy with.
Step Three: Hang Your Frames
When hanging your frames, start with the middle of your design and work your way out. This will ensure that your art is centered on your wall. Don’t forget to use a level!
