At a loss with a big wall?

Big empty walls can be intimidating to fill.


Simply pin up a finished piece of fabric--a scarf, embroidery, or fanciful tablecloth will work.

Throw some fabric on a dowel

Or make your own his and hers banners

A quilt will do nicely, especially out of the bedroom.

And don't forget rugs.

How about an old flag?

Sire, why not?

And if you're feeling fancy, you can go ahead and frame a tapestry. Although that might just defeat the purpose of the whole save money, use what you have thing.

As a lover of "soft goods," this strategy totally floats my boat.
