Create a stunning art wall with everyday snapshots
Don't be discouraged if you're on a tight budget for art. You can make your own! All of these images are close-up details of urban graffiti that we took on a digital camera (a point-and-shoot can work wonders). The frames are ready-made and come complete with mats, so all you need to do is select your favourite shots, blow them up at your local photo shop and pop them into the frames for a fabulous gallery wall, at a price you can afford.
Sarah's gallery secret: "To get the best results with a salon-style wall, I keep the width and height between frames consistent, so the collection reads as a unified whole."
