Here are three perfectly lovely, modern ways to display great art that don’t cost a lot (and you can do pretty darn quickly).

      Kelly that came out awesome! What a smart idea you had. It’s uniform and clean…but so flexible. I bet you can change those photos and art out any time you want a refresh! So clever! And affordable, too. Thanks for sharing!
