Is there a teenager who didn’t adorn his/her bedroom walls with posters of one sort or another? Well, I suppose there are probably some whose parents were insane when it came to holes or tape on the pristine paint, but for the most part, didn’t we all have our poster phase?
I was big into travel posters when I was in high school. I’m pretty sure I bought them, since no one in the immediate family worked for a travel agent. I also had a couple of abstract posters - one was a highly stylized nude woman. I never had black light posters, but I always wanted one. I never hung my favorite singers or actors on the walls. The posters were never framed - I think I was only allowed to use tape - no nail holes in the walls.
While I no longer have any posters, I do like wall art. We’ve got a few oil paintings, some signed, numbered prints, lots of family photos, and an oil pastel piece I commissioned as a gift for my husband some years ago. I’ve also got a clay piece that was a mother’s day gift years ago - it’s hanging in the dining room. Oddly, the only unadorned room is our bedroom - we never got around to decorating it, and since we’ll be on the market within a year, I doubt that we will. Maybe a cheap pic or two just to make it more marketable??
My daughter has all kinds of stuff hanging on her walls - posters, photos, a banner she made in Middle School, necklaces, a huge dreamcatcher, a bulletin board, old license plates, award certificates… I don’t sweat the nail holes - they’re easy to patch and I’ve got a little paint from her room to cover the patches when the time comes.
So, what were your favorite posters and wall hangings?
