Hello sweet friends – today I am sharing a super fun and crazy easy 10 Minute Decorating Idea. This time we are talking about interchangeable art.

I have been wanting to rework my bookcase shelves forever – they have just not been working for me. So, instead of being overwhelmed by the whole project, I just did one shelf – actually two.

But this doesn’t need to be a bookcase – it can be on a tabletop, a shelf – or the old fashioned way of on a wall. The secret is to pick or make a frame that you love – and then change the art out as your mood changes. It is a perfect way to quickly perk up a room.

I actually surprised myself and really liked the look of the more contemporary art in the traditional frame – the contrast just works for me. Add a few accessories around it – vintage books, some candle holders and a few vintage accessories – and you are done.

And the way to get all of this art is super simple as well.


The amazingly talented Jamin & Ashley Mills of The Handmade Home have published 4 amazing books.

The first one provides inspiration and detailed plans for creating your own custom artwork.

Since we are so darn cold here these days, we have picked out some great ideas to do once the weather warms up a bit – so for now, I bought my frame (details on the frame are below in the P.S.).


And then they went one step further and created books filled with amazing art that you can (easily) tear out and put in these frames. They are all gorgeously printed on heavy stock paper – perfect for popping in a frame.

They grouped according to style – but I found I love options from all three books. Simply use painter’s tape to hold in place on the matte but be able to easily change it out. Each of the images are sized for a 8 x 10 opening in a frame and there is a mixture of horizontal and vertical images in each of the books.


That lobster is so being used once the weather warms up.



It is amazing how with the exact same styling, the changing of the artwork changes the whole look.

And now, I have been inspired to rework my whole bookcase this weekend. Seeing each of the art pieces go into place and how much I loved them – made me realize that I want to add more art to my bookcases – and maybe I will finally get the shelves the way I like it.

And the best news of all – Jamin and Ashley are giving away a set of all four books to one lucky reader.

You will win: Handmade Walls, Art for the Contemporary Home, Art for the Traditional Home and Art for the Eclectic Home.

But if you can’t wait – go here to buy your own set.
