You don't have to be a vintage film buff to appreciate old movie posters. Once you start to sift through a few classics and see the colors and designs you can start to imagine how they will translate into a valuable asset in wall decorations for use in the kids' bedroom, your den or game room.
It amazes me that it took a long time for the general public to appreciate the beauty and art of Vintage movie posters. How sad it is to think of how many of those classic film posters were torn from the marquis by the theater owners and tossed in the garbage before they became part of the collectible movie memorabilia craze.
The rare movie posters from those days that were spared now command a pretty price tag and are too expensive for most buyers. However, we can make use of classic movie poster reprints and reproductions that are just as useful as the real thing when designing your home's decor.
OLD MOVIE POSTERS, PICTURES and PRINTS from the WILD WEST Western movie posters hold a bonanza of possibilities for a kid’s western cowboy theme bedroom. A vintage Shane movie poster would be great in a den or a young cowboy's bedroom. Arrange a large poster in the center surrounded by a gallery filled with old western cowboy pictures or photographs of the famous cowboys right out of Tombstone like:
The Cisco kid
The Lone Ranger
DISNEY MOVIE POSTERS It would be hard to find any kid's wall art that can compare to the beautiful designs, colors or decorative appeal of these jewels. There are so many to choose from that you could have a baby nursery theme centered around anything from Dalmatian puppies to Cinderella and there would be a Disney film poster that would suit your style to perfection.
KING KONG MOVIE POSTERS Vintage film posters with black and white pictures of King Kong would be an interesting an imaginative take on jungle wall decorations. A giant ape dangling Fay Wray off the top of the Empire State Building might not be as suitable for kids as a Curious George poster in some parent's eyes, but to each his own.
PETER PAN MOVIE POSTERS Here's an old movie poster that is still going strong because the movie is still an all time favorite with children. Tinkerbell posters may be more popular than the original Peter Pan film posters because the movie appeals to girls over boys.
The list of old movie posters and the places that we can display them with pride goes on and on without end. Next time you are in the process of looking for a unique room theme, flip through the list of Disney movies or old westerns and see if you can find some inspiration.
