I never ran a marathon, I’ve never been called an overachieving type A, and I’m about as competitive as a jellyfish, so pushing myself to create a new blog post for 31 consecutive days didn’t come naturally.
In one way I enjoyed the test to come up with fresh content under pressure. I was almost glad that the self-imposed deadlines came at me fast and furious.
But I missed the satisfaction that I was posting the best tutorials, photos and writing that I could – if only I had more time.
I’m Hanging It Up
I learned a lot by researching, dreaming, experimenting and writing about wall art for homestaging in the past month.
I hope you’ve learned along with me. I hope you’ve picked up some tips about decorating your walls.
Whether you are staging your own home, staging other people’s homes, or just having fun with art, I like to think I helped.
Everyone needs a creative outlet. Blogging is mine. Maybe you’ll find a new creative outlet or art form in the tutorials I’ve posted.
Here’s my summary of what an effective home stager should know when choosing wall art.
- Art for staging should never be offensive or controversial
- Big is best.
- There are economical and easy ways to create your own art.
- A variety of media are suitable for staging art -- paintings, textiles, collages, photos and combinations of these forms.
- Framing and matting can make all the difference.
As your high school teacher might have said, “If you forget everything else I’ve said this semester, remember those points.”
