Here's an inexpensive way to decorate a wall or corner and add lots of visual impact. I used vintage asian advertising postcards (a great thrift find) displayed on wooden plaques, boxes and finials from a home center. I painted the surface of all the wooden items black and added accents of gold with stenciled designs. I then enlarged the vintage images to fit some of the wood pieces and glued them onto the surface. When the glue dried, I created an interesting arrangement with the various items on the wall above a black shelf. The great thing about this composition is that there is a great deal of dimension and interest in size and placement.
Now there's a funky conversation wall on a tiny budget!
