If you're looking to get creative but to do so on a budget, then one fun activity to look at is upcycling an old painting and making it more personal to your style. By old paintings we mean those $2 thrift store oil paintings and popular prints you nabbed for cheap at a garage sale last year. A lot of these paintings get tossed out because they are often plain and don't fit a lot of modern homes. For example, a woodsy oil landscape painting might be pretty but it can also be pretty boring. The following is a look at three ways you can tap into your creative side and transform those old paintings into talking points:

3 Ways to Update an Old Painting and Make it Yours

  • Add in your favorite pop-culture characters. This has actually become a popular art technique used by artists like David Irvine, but really anyone can do it. For those looking to expand their paint skills, simply use acrylic paint to paint your desired pop-culture character directly onto the canvas itself. If you don't trust your painting skills, then find or print and cut out an image of your desired pop-culture character(s) and use a product like Mod Podge to adhere the image to the oil painting. 
  • Invert it with word art. Two of the most appealing qualities of oil paintings are the colors and textures. The swirls of paint strokes and the gorgeous merging of bright and pastel colors. If you have a painting in which you love these qualities but find the general subject to be boring -- such as a bowl of fruit on a kitchen table -- then one great way of personalizing it is to invert it with words. In this process, what you do is consider a phrase you love. Print out that phrase in large letters and then use them to create an inverted stencil. So instead of painting in the letters, you'll paint everything else so that your desired phrase pops out with the oil painting colors and textures you love. This page offers a great step-by-step tutorial of this technique. 
  • Dip it for a new perspective. This technique has grown thanks to artist Oliver Jeffers who uses it primarily for portrait oil paintings. While his portrait technique is cool as it makes people appear as they are looking over a wall, it's not the only type of painting you can use it. Dipping a landscape or subject piece sideways or diagonal can also create a cool and more modern look. To create the dip look, you can either quite literally dip the whole painting into an appropriately sized bucket or you can tape off a line and paint on the desired side. 
  • Stay Creative and Stay Tuned

    These three upcycle tips are great to follow whether you're looking to release some creative energy or want to update your living room aesthetics. For more tips, don't forget to subscribe!


    You likely aspire to sell your house as quickly as possible. However, you may not need to set a deadline for selling your residence to achieve your desired result. In fact, there are lots of things you can do to speed up the home selling journey, including:

    1. Boost Your House's Curb Appeal

    A home that boasts amazing curb appeal may draw buyers' attention as soon as it becomes available. Lucky for you, it may be easy to bolster your house's curb appeal in no time at all.

    To improve your home's curb appeal, you may want to complete assorted home exterior upgrades. Mowing the grass and eliminating weeds, for example, could make your front lawn stand out to buyers. Or, if you have cracked or damaged home siding, you can always devote time and energy to repair it.

    Of course, if you need help with home exterior enhancements, you can reach out to home improvement professionals. If you have home improvement pros at your side, you can accelerate the process of upgrading your house's curb appeal.

    2. Establish a Competitive Initial Asking Price

    The initial asking price of your home should account for the age and condition of your residence, along with the current state of the real estate market. That way, you can set a price for your home that falls in line with buyers' expectations.

    Generally, it helps to conduct an appraisal before you list your residence. An appraisal report is based on a wide range of factors, including the prices of comparable homes in your city or town. Therefore, if you perform an appraisal, you could receive a property valuation that helps you determine how to price your home competitively.

    3. Work with a Real Estate Agent

    As a home seller, it never hurts to receive expert support as you navigate the property selling journey. Fortunately, real estate agents are available nationwide, and these housing market professionals can offer great insights into what it takes to quickly sell a house.

    A real estate agent first will learn about you and what you hope to accomplish. Next, a real estate agent will develop a plan designed to help you achieve your home selling goals. You and your real estate agent then will put this plan into action and adjust it as needed. Perhaps best of all, if you receive an offer to purchase your home, a real estate agent can help you decide whether to accept, reject or counter this proposal.

    Furthermore, a real estate agent can help you bolster your home's curb appeal, establish the optimal initial asking price for your home and much more. And if you have any concerns during the house selling journey, a real estate agent is ready to respond to them right away.

    For those who want to speed up the home selling journey, it helps to prepare. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can list your home, ensure it generates significant interest from buyers and move quickly to finalize a house sale.
