Empty old picture frames are simple wall decor ideas that add stylish items to blank walls, shelves, and tables decoration. Framing turns simple objects into framed art, offering attractive and modern wall decoration ideas that create bold statements. All small things, including small modern or vintage frames, look more interesting inside larger picture frames on empty walls and can be used for unusual and stylish wall decoration ideas.

Empty vintage frames that clutter your home are perfect room decorating items for creating a collage with picture frames in various styles and frame sizes and experiment with colorful wall decoration ideas. Well-arranged combinations of several antique picture frames with one larger antique frame look dramatic on empty walls, offering chic wall decoration ideas for modern home interiors.

Arranging the smaller vintage, antique, or modern cheap wooden frames inside the larger antique frame make your wall decoration in fusion style become a stylish focal point of your room decorating. To keep the idea of the art collage working, hang your antique frame and cheap frames in a way that makes them look scattered but still organized within the antique frame.
