1. Fabric Wall Hanging

Fabric panels not only look good but they also add colors to the wall. Moreover, you get to see a lovely contrast. Look around for any vintage rug, quilt, panel, or cloth that is not in use. Repurpose it and hang it on the wall to see the true charm. The fabric will look great on a smooth glossy wall and it will be a cherry on the top if the backdrop is neutral. 

It is a great idea if there is drywall at your place. If you don’t want to hire expensive painters and avoid hefty  drywall estimates, you can opt for this idea.

5. Drip Painting

Drip painting is one of the easiest ways to decorate the walls. You don’t need to be an artist to pull it off. You can use gloss enamel paints or you can go for fluid acrylic paints that come in a tube and take home the bragging rights. Take different paint colors, a hard brush or stick, and create striking wall arts. If you find the paint is thick, use any pouring medium to make it thin. 

Pour the paint one by one and spray water to get a more dripping effect. Spread it with a brush.

7. Revamp the Corner with Cool Wallpapers

Empty corners tend to make beautiful rooms look dull. In fact, decorating nooks of the space can add life to that area. Luckily, the corner decorations are easy and can be decorated without any extra effort. In a living room, you can pick a corner where you can give the wall a better finish by pasting cool wallpapers. We recommend finishing borders of those wallpapers with a scarlet ribbon to give a more subtle finish.

Monogram pieces are a great addition to your wall. They add a personalized touch and you barely have to spend a dollar on this. Cut cardboard of any shape and use hot glue to attach the flowers. Attach the monogram on your wall and give a contemporary touch to your space.

Children have the ability to create art. Make them feel a proud artist by framing their masterpieces. The best part is that you won’t have to spend a penny on this. You can refine it by adding modern frames and then arranging it in a grid.
