Inexpensive Large Wall Art Options

The changes we've been making in our living room have caused me to think about making other changes around our house.

For example: I'm thinking about moving the art from our foyer into our dining room.



I like how the art looks in our foyer but despite its large size (50" x 60"), it actually looks pretty small on our two-story wall.





I don't want to fill the entire wall with something (cha-ching!) but I would like to replace the current art with something a little larger so I've rounded up some inexpensive and unexpected large wall art options!







Top 4: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4    |    Bottom 4: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4


All of them are massive (6' +), 7 of them are under $50, and the remaining 1 is under $100. Not bad for huge pieces of art!

Can you guess what they're made of?

I'll wait...

4 of them are large tapestries and 4 of them are shower curtains! Yes, shower curtains!

You could tack the tapestries up to the wall as-is or you could build a simple wooden frame for them, wrap the fabric around the frame and staple it in place like you would when you're stretching a canvas.

Some of the shower curtains do have holes at the top for shower curtain rings but you could cut the hole band off, hem the cut edge and then tack the curtain to your wall or you could build a frame for them as well.

Don't feel like you're limited to tapestries or shower curtains either! Tablecloths, sheets, towels, etc. make great art too :)

Would you ever hang a shower curtain on your wall?

  1. Cassie and I were talking about using shower curtains stretched as canvases. Love it!

  2. I totally used a shower curtain on my wall. I built a frame and streched the shower curtain over it for some large art. Now I am tired of the zebra, and I painted over it with some abstract art. Recycle, Reuse!! xo Kristin

    1. So awesome, Kristin! I had no idea the zebra came from a shower curtain!

  3. I also have a large wall in desperate need of some art. I've been dreaming up solutions for months, and a shower curtain is a great idea!

  4. I would totally hang a shower curtain on my wall! Of course, I'd frame it out first, but still...if it's eye candy, why not?! :)

  5. I love the idea of wrapping it like a canvas. Such a great way to make a statement.

  6. I knew the bottom ones were shower curtains because I almost bought the carnival swings one awhile back :). Just for a shower, though--I was not ingenious enough to think of using it on the wall--now I'll have to go look at it again!

  7. I think you can pretty much pull anything off, so shower curtain on a canvas is a thumbs up! :)

  8. I bought the Dizzying Heights curtain to do this on our two story wall but honestly, the image is blurred at that size. It's not as crisp as what I wanted and the background didn't jive with my wall color. They have lots of options in this line on Amazon.com.
