I recently re-decorated my living room from shabby chic to a more modern/contemporary look. None of the wall decor ,I had collected over the years worked w/ the new look and finding more was a daunting task and costly. Happily I came across a painted hinged folding screen on sale for less than $30.00. Took the hinges off and mounted the panels on the wall. Quick coverage of about a 1/3 of the wall on the cheap.

That screen was a steal. Looks fab.

Great idea. Like the different perspectives of same flower.
Picks up the throw real well too.

A few years ago I had same dilemma with my mom's apt.
Needed something to cover a large part of wall over the sofa.

I went to Kirklands (Large gift shop - home decorating and not too expensive)

I found a fireplace screen... three pieces hinged together - larger one in center and two small 'shutter' sized on sides. Design across all three were standing long stemmed 'punks' (at least that is what we called these swamp flowers.) Sounds awful (the description) but it was a very nice architectural piece - heavy as heck tho.

Yes,it was. It origanlly was $119.00 but went down to $24.99 on end of season sale.

The fireplace screen was a great idea too.

I still have some filling in to do but can do that over a period of time as I find pieces I like.
