Or go to a local shop that may give wooden pallets for free. This is a project that takes frequent work, but it is fun for many people.

Create Your Own Artwork
Artwork can be quite expensive. But, if you create your own, it will be cost-effective and just as you want it. If you are artistic, this can be a simple and fun task. But, if you are not artistic, there are still ways that you can liven up your space with your own work. Try covering some canvas with a stylish piece of fabric for a modern looking wall hanging. Or, spray paint some lace over a canvas to get a cool textured looking painting that you will be proud to display.
