fabric, frames and spray paint

Want an easy solution for the wall behind your couch?  Check out my fun (and obsessively symmetrical) fabric frames:

 Create this look by gathering up all your old frames (or search for them at bargain prices at garage sales and thrift stores).  In my case, I’m naturally drawn to symmetry and order, so of course I had two of each frame!  Take off the backs and remove the glass, and spray paint all the frames one color.  I chose a matte cream.  I’m also obsessed with patterns and fabric, so I had a bin full of fabrics to sort through for this project.  I buy a lot of fabric off of etsy (many people have “detash” sales of their extras) and there is also a local drapery shop I snag great remnants at amazing prices.

Have fun!  This wall solution can be traditional like mine, or it can take on a completely contemporary look.  It all depends on your frames and fabric selection.

Until next time!
