DIY: Framed Fabric

A few weeks ago, I posted about the framed wrapping paper I hung in my dining room.  With a gifted frame and $2 wrapping paper, that project was super inexpensive.  I also framed some clearance fabric several months ago that I never blogged about, so here is the lowdown on it (also a $2 project)!

I found this sheer fabric in a clearance bin at Joanne Fabrics several months ago and decided to bring a yard of it home.  I think I paid about $2.  The colors caught my eye and the pattern looked like watercolor art.  I brought it home, threw it in an old brass frame, and found a home for it in a little niche in the back of the house.

This old frame was missing the glass, so I simply wrapped the fabric around a piece of foam board, used pushpins to secure it, and shoved it back in the frame.  The fabric is exposed in the front.


I love the pop of color and how it looks like “art”.  Our walls are a very light grey/blue and I painted the niche with some leftover grey paint in my stash.  I think it sets the stage for the colorful “art” work.
