Looking for versatile, easy to use artwork for your home?  Try hanging items you probably already have laying around.  Here are five quick fixes for a blank wall.

Baskets.  Shallow wicker or woven baskets can make great art.  They add texture to a wall, which is a decorating must, and can easily liven up any casual room.

Mirrors.  Hanging a single, oversized mirror will bring life to room in an instant.  Look for mirrors with something interesting about them… great details in the frame, an interesting shape, etc.  If one huge mirror isn’t your style, try grouping several smaller mirrors together for an equally stunning look.

Serving Trays.  If you don’t have any laying around, check antique stores for beautiful vintage pieces.  The great thing about serving trays is that they come in lots of different sizes, shapes, and colors, so you’re bound to find one that will appeal to you and complement your décor!

Vintage Posters.  Choose a theme for your room and scour flea markets, garage sales, and antique stores (or the internet!) for vintage posters that can be framed and hung.  Framing is key when you hang posters… be sure to frame them well so it looks vintage and not like a college dorm!

Calendars.  Turn your schedule into art by purchasing a unique frame and removing the glass.  Line the back of the frame with fabric or an interesting, patterned paper and adhere the month’s calendar to the paper.  Hang it in a prominent place in need of some art and change the calendar out from month to month.  You can even change the background paper/fabric seasonally too if you so desire!  Alternatively, beautiful pictures from calendars can look great framed and hung too.
