Decorating Tips

So I need some decorating tips. I currently have, in my bedroom, pencil sketches hung up that my grandfather gave me. It's a pretty classy set up if I do say so myself. And here is where my dilemma comes in.

I recently came into possession of a certain tin. It's a tin of a Miller Lite Nascar, obviously with a big Miller sign behind it. It kind of looks like this.

This one is currently going for $59.95 on Ebay. Exciting stuff.

But when contrasted with pictures that pretty much solely look like this:


My question is, can I hang up that sign? Or would it just look silly next to all of my other pictures.

  1. I say go for it man, IF you really like the sign, put it up!

  2. If it were an antique looking sign, like a collectors piece then ya go for it. Otherwise I think it would look a bit out of place next to that awesome sketch.

  3. 60 bucks! I'd just stick a piece of paper of some random draw (colored of course).

  10. as an architecture student, i say it can match. if you're going for a mural collage thing than go for it! later on you can get your hands on more tin sighns, more retro ones as well and then enhance your wall collage so that this sign won't be so lonely :)

  12. Hang it, and if you think that it doesn't fit take it down, it's your room :P

  13. Hang it up if it has a place for you to "hang" but if not don't damage it since it might go for more later if you ever decide to sell it.

  14. I dunno if I would, personally. There has to be a better place for it.

  15. 60$?!? Too much for it. I think you can find cheaper :)

  16. You could maybe frame the sketches with either the frame or the matting around it with colors on the tin to pull it all together. Black and white photos look awesome contrasted against something red. Or just cluster the sketches together and put the tin at the top in a nice neat order.
