Are you sitting down? I finally made a decision and finished my gallery wall!
The empty frames hanging in the living room had been the subject of jokes with friends
and family for
a year awhile, no more! I loved the vibrant colors and patterns of these
batik-like fabrics I found at Joanns and Hancock Fabrics, and knew how simple and
inexpensive it would be to frame them. Remember when I showed you lots of options
I like the contrast of the ornate details on my Craigslist settee that I reupholstered
with the simple modern frames.
I hit the jackpot at Goodwill one day
a year ago and found all the frames (already matted)
for $8 each, they're nice sized 18" x 21". The entire arrangement is 5 1/2 feet x 6 1/2 feet,
large enough to make a pretty statement.
I bought a third of a yard each of several prints, the fabric was 30% off
the day I shopped and each ended up being about $3, total $27.
The process is just a few simple steps:
1) Iron your fabric smoothing out any wrinkles.
2) Place fabric behind mat and position pattern/color to your liking.
3) Trim fabric and hot glue to edge of mat, place in your frame.
I'm loving the variation in colors and how effortlessly they'll mix with some
warm tones for fall, which is right around the corner! :)
