I don't really think it's a big secret that I love fabric (I mean, really, don't we all?!) I frequently dream of plastering my walls with it. (Which you can do with liquid starch - but, I haven't tried it yet.)
So instead, I finally bought some stretcher boards from IKEA ($5!!). I had bought enough of this green and white damask to try the wall/starch thing, but ended up doing something else with it (which I will show you later this week - if you are interested....) So I put the remnant on my frame and plan on hanging it in the bathroom. I have all sorts of things I want to do with these now - like maybe a faux headboard....
Last week I saw this great post on Jen's blog. I had plans to frame this fabric anyway. I truly fell in love with it after making this bag. I just hadn't researched getting a large frame, etc, etc. Basically, I was procrastinating. Jen was nice enough to give me some good tips on how to do this affaordably. So I went that night to Michael's, coupons in hand and came home with this frame and filled it up. .
The nice thing is, I can swap these out any time I want to change the look a bit. And all it will cost is the price of the fabric! Don't we all love a good deal like that?
Let me know if you've got some fabric art hanging around your house - I'd love to see it!
