Large walls, but small budget? I had an extremely large wall behind my couch with cathedral ceilings and couldn't afford to buy large pictures to "balance" the room. Instead, we purchased very inexpensive wood molding from Home Depot, mitered it and attached to walls with finishing nails. Painted the molding to blend with wall and put in a very "neutral" wallpaper.
Then I was able to hang my much smaller and inexpensive wall pictures without them looking diminished on such a large wall. We also decided to use the same molding as a chair rail and put wall paper below to finish the look.
This was a great way to "balance" this very large wall in our living room without spending a lot of money on huge pictures.

What a great idea! And it looks very professional.
Good idea! Looks like it came from the pages of Pottery Barn! Very nice.
Looks great!! Wish i had the problem of too much wall space....lol I have the opposite. I was just saying the other day that i wish i had more walls to hang some of my pictures on. But if I ever do move into a house with this problem i will definately keep this idea in mind. I love it.
Great idea! It looks beautiful!
Absolutely beautiful. I wish I had a creative imagination like that. Love it!
I have seen that done on ceilings too (without the pictures though) Neat idea! I love that! You can also paint inside the frame with a slightly darker-than-your-walls paint if you are not excited about wallpaper. Too cool! It looks great!
What a great idea. It looks so beautiful and refined, too!
