Home Improvement for the Unimaginative!

Here's a kick ass idea to spruce up your bare walls without having to pay a shit ton of money at Aaron Brothers. Go to a thrift store, look for some kick ass record covers and then frame them! The cheapest record cover frames I have found are at your local Target or ONLINE HERE

For my spare room, I went the 50's/60's rat pack route since those seemed to fit with my old movie posters.
But another cool angle would be New Wave album covers. You can find cheap records on Ebay. Here are some ideas I'll throw out at you...
