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