Vintage Beach Wall Art

If you saw my home tour earlier this week, you are familiar with this gallery wall that I created featuring vintage beach wall art!  If you somehow missed my summer tour, you can see it in this post.

Today, I want to share the sources for the amazing vintage art that I chose for this gallery wall.  If you’ve never put together a gallery wall, you can read my tutorial for all the details in this post.  It try to explain everything that I do so you can feel confident putting a gallery wall together in your own home.   And, this post will also be helpful:  How to Resize Public Domain Art to Fit Any Frame.

I absolutely love the beach and I really wanted a subtle nod to it in my home for this summer.  I didn’t go crazy and buy all the nautical things available at HomeGoods and other decor stores.  Instead, I focused on a colors, textures, and this gallery wall filled with vintage art.  Below, I’ll give you links to each piece of art that I used in this gallery wall.  You can click on the title and it will take you to the downloadable link.

What a beautiful collection you have put together. Thank you so much for sharing this information! You have introduced me to a whole new world of decorating that I didn't know existed. I did not know there were sites to download free art. And I love the hat you have included in your gallery wall!
