How did Picasso get to my bookshelf???

If you happen to be an art lover, but (as it happens) happen NOT to have the $$$ needed to purchase a painting:

or- if you tend to change your taste every few months:

I’ve got you covered!

This hack is simple, frugal, green, and genius.


I happen to love art books, those hardcover many pages ones, that depict my favorite painters- mainly- Picasso.

I love his work because of its simplicity, honesty, colorful lively lines, and somehow-the composition relaxes me.




Yep- the ones we older (mature, mature) folks used in school.

My partner made these from wood scraps he had, using about 2 nails for each stand.

The “sketchy” one was made many years ago when the kids were younger and more “artistic” (bored?), and we let them, because, as you may well see- the back is totally covered by the book it is holding.(yes, it is one of those cases where you can’t judge a book by its book stand cover).

So- if you happen to already have a good art book containing pictures of your favorite painter-photographer, find wood scraps and a few nails, nail it down and open your book on your favorite art piece.

Next month (or week? or day??) when you feel tired of that picture- flip over to another page, and so forth. tired of that artist? get another book.



If you look closely at the two pictures, you’ll see I flipped the pages in my 3 art books- and got -in my opinion- a totally different vibe in my living room.

Enjoy- the cooliflower.
