Fabric Covered Canvas Frame

When my Mom was in Florida this winter she brought me back a couple of items I had requested(thanks Mom)so that I could complete a couple of DIY projects.

I'm really happy with the one project that I'll share in another post.

This one I'm not so sure of yet.

I've really been liking all the lattice-like prints I've seen used in home decor.

So I got the idea of using fabric to cover a canvas frame and creating an art piece.

At Joann's Online I found a gorgeous fabric by Waverly that Mom was able to track down for me and I used it to create this:


I was originally thinking of placing it in the powder room but it looks terrible on the dark green walls. So I tried it here. I like it a bit better but I think it's still missing something.

I think perhaps it would look better on more neutral coloured walls similar to the creme coloured lines in the fabric. And as I am thinking of renovating/painting the powder room all is not lost, this piece may still find a home.

And the best part is that I still have enough fabric left to make a pillow.

I'll keep you updated on where it finally lands.

I like it. If you used it in your redecorated powder room - you could make some ruffles to add to some pretty towels.

Like the finished project I agree more neutral back ground would bring out the pretty blue . Love the idea of making some edging for towels.....
