10 High-End Wall Art Look-Alikes for Under $10

etsy printables

Hi guys!  I hope you’ve had a good week!  I’m excited to share a great source I’ve found for inexpensive wall art!  If you have been a reader for awhile then you know how much I LOVE looking through Pottery Barn and Ballard Designs catalogs for decorating inspiration.

Once in awhile it can be discouraging though (like when I find beautiful piece of art that cost between $200-$1000+).  There is no way I could spend that much on wall art!

Good news is that I have discovered an amazing place to find Pottery Barn and Ballard Design style artwork for a lot less.  Believe it or not it’s Etsy!

If you are not familiar with Etsy it is an online store where people can sell their handmade items.  One of the many things being sold on etsy are printables.  Printables are artwork you can download immediately onto your computer and then print on your own printer OR have printed at places like Staples.

I am in awe of the talent on Etsy AND how inexpensive most of the printables are being sold!!

Below are just a few examples!

As we approach the Summer months I have seen A LOT of boat and coastal inspired artwork.  Here is a boat photograph from Pottery Barn for $118.

Most of these high end art pieces are in larger sizes then 8×10 however getting the etsy download in larger sizes isn’t too expensive.

For example, I recently created this abstract in photoshop elements and got it printed in the 16 x 20 size at Staples for $14.  I bought the frame on sale at Joann Fabrics for $15 which made it a total of $30.

If you purchase a black and white print download  you can get it printed at Staples (or other places) on their blueprint machine in large sizes for only $5!

Etsy also has some great, inespensive printable resources to help with home organization (something I’ve been working on this year).  You can check out my friend Amy’s printable etsy shop or search “home organization printables” on etsy to get lots organizing tools for $5 or under!

Next time you are looking for artwork for your home on a budget, try etsy, and search “printable artwork”.  You most likely will not be disappointed!:-)  I hope you enjoyed this money-saving decorating tip and I hope you have a great weekend!!:-)
