If you follow me on facebook, twitter, or instagram, you’ll know that I teased this post a couple days ago. Sorry about my late posting, but I forgot to publish this guy! Anyways, enjoy!
Ever wonder what to do with your extra fabric pieces from upholstery projects? You can sometimes end up with quarters that are not quite the right size for any projects. Until now! I’ve seen this idea on pinterest, Young House Love has discussed it (in their upcoming book!!!), and many other DIY blogs.
Our guest room is in a constant state of getting upgraded. First, it was my snazzy bench project. Then, the mirror getting a matching treatment and moving the old mirror back to the family room where it belongs. Now, it’s the walls! We had some sad, baren walls in that room. They were a cute blue color, so that wasn’t the issue. The issue was the emptiness of it all. I haven’t ever had anything on this monster of a wall, even before rearranging the room.
It’s one of the first spots you can see when you walk up the stairs. Just a big, blue wall. Not so inviting and definitely not exciting to see when you might be staying as a guest (sorry guys!). So I decided that this needed to be remedied. I had plenty of fabric pieces from my bench project that I could use and a frame to start off. Needless to say, I got to work.
And yes, I’m aware that all my frames are not the same. I wanted it to be cool. Not only is it an odd number of frames (odd numbers are more pleasing to the eye), I wanted something to look like it was POPPING out of the wall. And now, when you walk up the stairs and look into that room, you see a nice, decorated wall!
Project price breakdown:
Fabrics were scrap from my previous project- Free
Glue gun/sticks are always in stock at this house- Free
Frames- $15 for all five. I got the four similar frames in a pack from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, using a $5 off coupon. The 3-D frame was from IKEA and $1.99
So filling up a wall only cost me $15 and about a half hour to make all the framed fabric pieces? I’d say it was definitely worth it.
