DIY: Instant Art
Looking to make your cell of an apartment a little less depressing without pissing off your crotchety landlord? Painting your blues away will also mean kissing your deposit good bye and those N’Sync posters are kind of unacceptable at this point. So what’s a budget-conscious girl to do?
Though the options outside of boy bands and large scale art are admittedly slim, check out Kate’s Paperie or Papyrus for vintage-looking wrapping paper sheets worthy of framing. Blown up maps and post cards, old school anatomy textbook images and embarrassing ’70s yearbook pictures are looking for a home at less than $4.50 a pop.
Slide the poster-sized sheets into cheap as hell frames from A.I. Friedman and just wait for your friends to jealously ask where you got your new art. Be sure to tell them it’s from a gallery in SoHo or Paris. Feeling just a tad superior is half the fun.
