Quick & Easy Dining Room Wall Art
We've all been there, perusing the isles at Target, Hobby Lobby, or Antique stores in pursuit of the perfect artwork to hang in our homes.
I'm going to share one of my favorite tips on how you can find the perfect art at a affordable price and have 1,000's of choices.
Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy the hunt of trying to find the perfect piece, but my standard go to places were just coming up dry. You see, we installed board and batten in our dining room, so size & scale were making this a bit more difficult than normal. I'd find something I liked but it was the wrongs scale.
Okay now, I didn't completely come up empty handed, I did find these modern style frames at Target. They were just the right size and I loved the modern style plus the the wood tone was just right. So that got me thinking, why not just buy some art off Etsy to fill the frames. 🤔

So that's exactly what I did, and of course after getting over how overwhelmed with how many choices I had. I decided I wanted art that featured Buddha or something spiritual. This definitely helped narrow the search results even further. I eventually landed into JESLIVAN Etsy Shop, where I found the perfect prints I was looking for. They have an amazing selection of digital download prints.
I purchased four prints and sent them off to Walmart's one hour photo. Because these are digital downloads, you can print them from home, or send them off to a print shop. Now my frames are 11X14, with a mat to fit 8X10, so I chose to have them printed as 8X10's with a matte finish instead of a glossy finish.
So an hour later I was excitedly putting the prints in the frames and immediately hanging them up. Okay, I may be a little impatient. 😂 Can you blame me though? This is the fun part putting your ideas together.
See that was quick & easy! What's even better, is if I change my mind, I can easily change out the prints for different art. I think the prints and frames make the board and batten pop in just the right way! 😍
So yeah get on Etsy and look around, there are some incredibly talented folks on there! Brownie points because you are shopping small and not a big box store.
