Anatomy of a Gallery Wall | Affordable Artwork

After 3 years I am finally starting to love my gallery wall. It is not something you can put together over night and the best ones are usually made up of pieces you cannot live without. 

Our gallery wall
Bad Taste Quote Print  $25 | Prada Palazzo Italian Landscape $28 | Oil Flower Painting thrifted $25
"Window of Innocence" Pastel Nude available in affordable prints upon request
Draw the Line Fashion Illustration $28 | Italian Painting painted by Doug's grandfather
Lulie Wallace Print $45 (sold out)

The federal mirror is from one of my favorite stores in Raleigh called Studio 123 in Seaboard Station. They have a ton of wonderful investment pieces that will not break the bank.  The sconces are thrifted from Habitat Restore. 

Some more of my favorite pieces...

My favorite place to find affordable, original artwork is searching local thrift stores, estate sales and the flea market. What are some of your favorite spots for affordable art? I am always looking for new sources and artists. 


  1. Love this over the striped wall!


  2. Love your pics. I also like to frame fabric I love, an old letter that has special meaning or even a matchbook or fortune from a great night.

  3. love your wall! i've been working on mine (sorta) and it is taking forever! love your picks here - i need to go to some yard sales and the flea market to find some one of a kind finds. most of my stuff right now is from etsy.
