Just a quick post today about fabric…I meant to post it this weekend but I decided to “unplug” and spend my time with my munchkins!
I hate when I have a vision in my head of what fabric I want but can’t find anything like it in the stores.
I was having this problem with this bench in our master bedroom…
I got this new throw pillow from Pottery Barn and wanted a wider striped fabric to coordinate with it. After searching thru the local fabric stores with my 2 very crabby darling angels, I ended up buying some cheap canvas and craft paint.
I taped off some stripes with painters tape, filled it in with paint, and had myself some cute fabric. I left a little of the white showing thru to give it more of a old worn vintage vibe.
And once AGAIN I painted the wood white.
This was the only BEFORE picture I could find of the bench (bad blogger!) and a little peak of our previous house (which we lived in for a whopping 6 months :) ).
This is such a cheap and easy project it would work great for throw pillows or drapes too!
Think polka dots, stencils, monograms, quotes…there are a zillion possibilities.
Hmmm what can I paint next?
Now my favorite little man and I are off to story time :)
