Transforming Spaces with Art: 8 Creative Ways to Display Art

Art transforms, and how!

Walls (the obvious), get an instant facelift with artwork on them. But let's try breaking some norms... knock some of your art off the walls and see if you agree with me.

Read on. A few of these are brilliant ideas especially for those staying in rented homes, where hammering nails on the walls is equivalent to drilling holes into your landlord's chest ;-)

Putting them back where they came from... where else, on an easel :-) I admit having a secret crush on this one.

    1. :) hmm maybe for me too for practical reasons like moving the painting each day for cleaning the floor. But if one can work around it, great idea!

  5. Your first picture gave me an idea.
    I have been postponing the idea of putting up paintings/pictures on the wall just because I did not like the idea of putting up a nail. Now this is something I must try (if I can find some open space in the house to plonk a painting)

    1. Yes, do try it. It would look great in a nook with a lounge chair, a bookshelf, and plants!
