Etsy Friday -cover my wall

I thought on today's "Etsy Friday" I would take a look at some wall art. It can be expensive to cover your walls. Rob and I always talk about how much we want more art for our home. But, it is difficult when art (especially original art) can be so expensive. But Etsy is a great way to get something that is more original without breaking the bank. Any kind of original art is probably going to be a little more on the pricier side, no matter who the artist is.

I tend to like paintings that are a little abstract, but not to the extreme where it looks like my 2 year old son can do it. I really like this one a lot.

There is some seriosuly fabulous photography prints for sale on Etsy. I tend to like ones that are in nature- birds, flowers, trees, skies. These are so affordable and you can usually pick which size you want, which is great. I thought this one was especially pretty.

One of my favorite things to look at on Etsy are the great graphic art prints. There are SO many, they are SO affordable and I love the modern feel they give. This one is from one of my favorite shops.

And lastly, I really like sketches, and I hope no one is offended by this, but I really like nude sketches- not so much full frontal nudity, but something tasteful, like this one below. I hope you don't think I am weird, but I really would like to have some nude art in our home. Maybe hanging in the bedroom as opposed to the living room, but seriously, the human body is a beautiful thing!

Well, thats all for today. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! We are planning on starting on the kitchen project. More on that later :-)
