Simple Wall Art Update

Some projects are time consuming and difficult. This is not one of those projects. Also, you could pretty much take any old frame in your house and create this simple art.

I will start you out with the finished product because it just makes me so happy.

I started with some really simple and pretty prints.

They looked great in our apartment, but I am no longer using any brown in our color scheme, so I decided to update it using some of the fabric from the pillows I sewed and a little white paint.

I took the art apart. Ignore my red shoe strewn across the top of the picture.

I cut the fabric into strips and alternated the fabric.

Then I pinned it all together.

After a little sewing machine magic, I had everything ready to go. I hot glued the fabric around the original cardboard that was in the frames.

Then I moved onto the frame. Here’s the thing. I sprayed it with the cheapest spray paint possible on a really humid day. That meant drippy, tacky paint and uneven spots. Ew.

So I sanded everything down and hand painted it.

Then I put everything back together. And voila! Such a simple update with a high impact!

It makes the perfect statement on the wall by the window and balances out the fabrics on the couch.

Now I’m brainstorming other places I can use fabric in a frame. It’s just too easy not to do it again!
