I’m not always on board with design trends, but one I am loving recently is that of vintage tree wall art. Several designers that I love have used these popular Stoffer Home Tree Tops prints in their spaces and I just love the cozy, vintage look. But the price tag… not so much. I was able to find digital prints of these vintage tree etchings on Etsy for only a few dollars each. I then had them printed and framed, all for less than the cost of one designer print. If you would recreate this designer look on a budget, keep reading for all of the details!

Ernest Haskell’s Tree Tops Etchings
Often print shops do not credit the artist when selling vintage artwork that has entered the public domain. I did a little digging and was able to discover the artist–Ernest Haskell. The four etchings are entitled:
Haskell created these etchings between 1900-1925 which means that they have entered the public domain, and you can actually download them for free using the links above. I decided to purchase the digital prints from Etsy because they were digitally color-graded to match one another, and sized for easy printing.
Dining Room Before & Mood Board
Here is a look at our dining room before. I gave this room a makeover a few years ago for the One Room Challenge, and I’m still a huge fan of the creamy board and batten. (The color is Classic Gray by Benjamin Moore.) Still, I felt that the dining room looked a little bland and could use more character.
After I decided on the vintage tree wall art, I created a mood board using Canva to help visualize the space. I also ordered a checkered rug that I have had my eye on since it launched and will share that in a future blog post.
Budget Friendly Vintage Tree Wall Art
Here is the designer look for less! I had the vintage tree wall art printed and framed by Frame It Easy (details listed below). The total for the digital art + all four custom prints / frames was less than the cost of one Stoffer Home Tree Tops print! The artwork really cozied up our dining room and now I cannot imagine the space without it. Here are the frame details to keep in mind if you would like to recreate this look:
- Art Size: 12” x 24”
- Outside Frame Size: 15 3/16” x 27 3/16”
- Style: Hanover, in Satin Black
- Matting: 1 1/2” Herbal (White Core)
- Cover: Non-Glare Acrylic (I chose this because the room is very bright)
- Print Paper: Art
- Backing: Standard Foamcore
