What I won't do to give you all some inspiration!
I was a complete nuisance in Joann Fabrics,
laying bolts of fabric on the floor, 'framing' them, and taking photos!
All to show you how to easily, and inexpensively create a unique look.
The black & white abstract I put together for the vignette on the
emerald dresser here was $2.50 for 1/2 yard of fabric (much more than I needed).
The 18 x 21 frame was a thrift store score for $8.
Of course, higher end fabrics work very nicely, too!
Here are some fabrics I grabbed to get you thinking...
(sorry for the poor photos, lighting on the floor in Joann's isn't optimal)

Due to time, I just stopped in a spot that looked interesting.
I chose all of the combinations from the small collection of fabrics on the right side,
only a tiny representation of their huge selection.
They have coordinated groupings if you don't think mixing patterns is your forte.
I used the black and white bolt above for mine, shown below.
Think outside the box, any type of fabric will work,
maybe you have a stash of interesting fabric,
a special dress or tablecloth of your Grandma's that may be stained or worn,
something from your travels folded up in a drawer...
the possibilities are endless!
