Fabric Canvas Wall Art

While perusing fabric for my living room drapes, I fell in love with this beauty. 

Fabric Art 042

I love the lime greens, the whimsy of the birds and how the gray keeps it from looking too feminine even though it’s a floral print.  In an effort to showcase this fabric somewhere in my home, I decided to incorporate it into our dining room design by turning it into a piece of art. 


Ultimately, I think I will add two square mirrors to either side of the art as well as neutral drapes so that I can change out the art and runner as the mood strikes.


To make mine, I used:

  • Fabric
  • Canvas
  • Iron
  • Spray Adhesive (optional)
  • Staple gun
  • Teeth and nails (for hanging)

I started by ironing my fabric to remove any wrinkles.

  I used a 50 x 40 inch canvas because I wanted a large piece.

I figured out where I wanted the fabric to lay, then sprayed a light coat of spray adhesive to the canvas and covered it with my fabric.

Then I began stapling the fabric to the wooden frame.

After all sides were stapled, we added teeth to the back for purposes of hanging.

And then hung her up!

I also made a coordinating runner with stitch witchery for the table.

It’s feeling so springy in here right now!  Can’t wait to add the mirrors, drapes, rug, sideboard . . . ha!   Always a work in progress!


But looking so much better than what we started with!

Top Blogger Project and Master Bedroom

We’re only into the second month of 2011 and already, so much fabulousness is happening all over blogland!  I am head-over-heels for two projects I spotted recently- a cabinet makeover and a master bedroom reveal.

First up, my friend Emily of Name 5 Things took her uninspired Ikea cabinet and turned it into a sleek and stylish masterpiece!  All it took was some paint and a some graph paper to draw the Greek key design (with the help of her hubby)! 




Visit her BLOG to see how she did it- she included a very detailed tutorial that I’m sure you’ll appreciate. 



And Casa Greer with the help of 6th Street Design School completed this super hip and gorgeous master bedroom.  I love the bold charcoal grey wall color and the fresh pops of yellow and white.

Here is the design board Kirsten created.


And here is the finished result after many DIY projects completed by Elsa!





If you haven’t met Elsa yet, head on over to
