How to Incorporate Vintage Art In Your Home

There are so many different styles of art to choose from when designing your home. Modern styles have become very popular in recent years and minimalistic pieces continue to be trendy in a lot of design styles. I LOVE vintage art because it is truly timeless and elevates the look of your home. I think it really brings in an elegant and high-end look with minimal effort!

Vintage art can be used in so many ways throughout your home. One of my favorite ideas is to create a vintage art gallery wall using gold and wood vintage frames. It’s one of the best ways to display your beautiful art prints.

Another great place to display art is on an art ledge accent wall like the one we created last year! I love using this wall in our dining room to show off my art finds!

Where to Buy Vintage Art Prints

Vintage art can be purchased from a variety of stores. There are many sites online that have authentic vintage and antique art for sale. However, you’ll notice you may pay top dollar for an authentic painting or sketch.

The good news is there are many affordable places to source art! Here are a few of my favorite places to find vintage collections of art:

  • Thrift Store. Thrifting vintage art is my absolute favorite! I have sourced so many beautiful paintings from thrift stores and the best part is, they often are already framed in a gorgeous antique frame! This saves so much money.
  • Flea Markets. Flea markets are another great place to access some amazing pieces. It takes some digging, but often sellers at flea markets want to turn over inventory and may be open to offers on the art they sell!
  • Facebook marketplace. Always my top go-to before I purchase anywhere… So many art sellers sell on FB marketplace and now with shipping options, you can even order art from out of state!
  • Antique Shops. Antique stores are my favorite place to find both vintage art AND unique and beautiful vintage frames! Many of the art pieces in my collection were sourced from my local antique store… They also know me by name there which is fun!
  • Etsy. Many Etsy Sellers have antique items or sell digital items for download!

If you want to get a vintage art look without spending a dime though, the best place to look is: The Public Domain!

Where Can I Find Free Vintage Images?

Thankfully, you don’t have to go to an art auction and pay top dollar to get the vintage art look you love. There are so many places where you can find free vintage art prints and digital downloads of non-copyrighted works of art.

Here are a few of the places I source art prints for my home!

All of these websites are part of what is called The Public Domain. The public domain refers to a collection of art that does not have copyright protection. This means you can get these free images in the form of instant downloads in high resolution without violating any copyright laws!

Skip The Hassle of Searching For Art!

It can be overwhelming and time-consuming to search through these giant online galleries to find the perfect art for the winter season. Thankfully, I’ve made this super easy for you by creating a curated gallery of vintage spring art FREE printables! 

How to Download and Resize Free Printables

It is so easy to download free art online. If you aren’t tech-savvy or aren’t quite sure how to resize and print these images, here are my top tips!

  1. Log on to one of the sites mentioned above that are part of the public domain (My fave is the Smithsonian Institute).
  2. Enter your search terms into the search bar. (For example: “Lily watercolor”, “sketch of a little boy”, “mother and baby”).
  3. Sift through your results and adjust your search terms to get more options.
  4. Once you select the image you want, hit download! (Or skip all this and click on & download one of my free downloads here).
  5. I use Canva to resize my images. If you don’t have a Canva account, don’t worry! It’s SO easy to create a free account. Canva lets you create a custom-size download. This is the easiest way to resize an image in high resolution.

6. Once you log onto Canva, select “create a design”, then at the bottom of the pop-up window is a “custom size” option. I like to resize it to 8×10 in. If I need a different size, I go back in later and adjust.

7. After your download is resized correctly, it’s time to print!

The Best Way To Print a Free Download

Here are the best ways to print your beautiful art downloads:

  • For smaller images (8×10, 5×7, 4×6) I print on my home printer! I like to use either good-quality card stock or watercolor paper. These options provide the best look of authentic art. You almost can’t tell they are downloads!
  • For larger images, I like to print at Staples print center. There are so many places you can print these images though. Walgreens, Shutterfly or even a local print shop are all great options!
  • To create a very authentic look, try getting a vintage art download printed on canvas! Canvas prints look so real and allow you to display your art in so many beautiful ways!

The Best Way to Display Free Printable Spring Wall Art

  • As a background for your Frame TV.
