Rating: 1 votes, 2.00 average.
Interior design is a thorn in the side of those who want their place to look great but donít want to spend the time and money to do it. Moreover, hanging, banging, and arranging will damages walls, which is an unfortunate occurrence for those who are renting or donít want to invest in later renovations. Below, find crafty ideas for damage-free hanging.

Second Hand

Itís great to have another set of hands when youíre decorating, but itís even better to purchase second-hand items offered at bargain prices. Search Craigslist, peruse the newspaper for garage sales, and ask friends about frames they no longer need or use. Going second-hand is not a thing to be ashamed of (unless youíre embarrassed about saving money).

Decorative Molding

Head to Home Depot or your local hardware store and take a look at the assortment of decorative molding. You donít have to spend a lot on expensive picture frames (in addition to having vendors place posters in the frame). Alternatively, you can get really creative while keeping things economical, buying finished or unfinished decorative molding. Aside from being cheap, particular molding comes without paint, so you can place paint, glitter, or artistic flair of choice throughout while framing your funny posters and artwork.

One Frame and Many Posters

Serving as another alternative, buy one ornate frame and place many posters inside. This is a great idea if you have a bunch of funny posters or pieces of art from the same artist, so you can create a theme or larger piece of dedication. Place posters side by side or create a frame within a frame with pieces of colored tape or decorative ribbon.

Off the Wall

Sure, hanging pictures or posters in a frame makes marks and holes in the wall, so take your focus off the wall and look for other places to fit your posters. For example, if you have a bookcase, which is likely very dull looking on the sides and back, glue your art onto these areas. Also, if you have small posters, consider buying cheap vases and wrapping them in art to arrange on your coffee table, atop shelves, etc. You canít create damage to your walls when you find other methods to display your art.

No Cabinet Doors

Some hate the cabinetry of their homes, so they spend an exorbitant amount of money on renovation that requires buying new cabinet faces in addition to paying carpenters to do the installation. However, itís very easy to take the doors off, leaving the foundation, and covering your plate ware, pots, and pans with artwork. You wonít have to damage your walls, but youíll have to put holes in the cabinet foundation, so if youíre renting, ask your landlord if itís okay to make holes. Itís likely they wonít care if the holes will be covered with the original cabinet faces upon your departure.

Itís hard to survive in a living space without art and design, yet itís easy to find ways to avoid damaging your walls or paying a lot for pricy frames and associated vendors. Put down the heavy hammers and expensive frames and put on your thinking cap.
