It can be put on lines, it can be random, on the entire wall or just on a small section. You choose what you think looks the best. You can use picture frames around a fabric with a nice pattern or with a printed phrase that inspires you somehow. Besides that, you can also use a special paint where on your wall so you can write on it with chalk so you can draw, ask your friends to leave some cute message, you can use as a diary to remember what you need to do or just write some song lyrics and phrases that you love. The good thing about that is that you can change it whenever you want, you just need to erase what’s on the wall and do it all over again. It definitely gives a lot of personality to your space.
You can make your own shelves to use anywhere you want on your apartment. You can use a few boxes of wood to make them. It’s possible to let them as they are, with that natural color of wood and an-even edges, spray paint them with any color that is going to match with the rest of your décor or use a stick-on wallpaper to make it even more cool and make it the statement of the room. If you don’t want to use the wallpaper on the wood shelves, you can put it on the space on the wall where they are going to be put on, so once it’s hung up it looks like the pattern is part of the back of the shelf. Or if you want to make it even more different, you can use a ladder as a shelf. You can just lean it on the wall and use each step as a shelf, putting plant pots, picture frames and other elements of décor on it.
Pictures with your friends, family and pictures of places where you’ve traveled don’t need to stay hidden on a photo album or on your phone, you can use them to decorate your home. Besides traditional way, on the frame over the shelf, you can use them on the wall, making a heart or another kind of shape that you like. You can make a tree with all of your pictures or hang them on a string and put it on the wall or under a shelf.
