The concept of taking something and redoing it to suit your needs and tastes is nothing new. People have been doing it with, well, pretty much everything. If you”re looking for some home decorations that are cheap, personal, and easy, you might want to try repurposing old, unwanted artwork like these people did. Thanks to the Repaintings subreddit, artists both amateur and professional are transforming vintage paintings, prints, and drawings into something new.
Does the idea of drawing on an old painting or photo bother you? Think of it this way: these images were long forgotten, and it”s unlikely that any of them would be worth much more than their thrift store prices. The repainted details give them new life.
When you”re on the lookout again for something to decorate your home, or if you”re perusing a thrift store, consider getting crafty with a cheap old painting or photo. The possibilities are endless, and you can easily create a one-of-a-kind piece that reflects your tastes out of something old.
