A few weeks ago one of my favorite online fabric stores reached out to me, OnlineFabricStore.net. They are super affordable and have SO many beautiful home decor (and other) fabrics to choose from. You might recall some of my master bedroom updates I’ve been posting about recently (like my most recent update here), and this is yet another project to add to the mix. I am completely over the moon about my new bedroom design, but one half of the room was still “un-madeover”. Yeah, completely just made up a word. Regardless of my awesome new word, one half of the room was perfect while the other side was merely… meh.
We have a flat screen in our room sitting atop my dresser and for the past year and a half I had an off white piece of iron scroll work hanging above the TV. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t striking either. It was “good enough for the time being”. Once I added the pop of blue and beautiful ikat pattern to one side of the room (my bed), I needed to bring that same pizzazz to the other side (over the TV). That’s when I had the idea of framing some fabric to hang over our flat screen. It was colorful. It was graphic. It was JUST what the space needed!
For my fabric, I chose the Premier Prints Towers Sherbert/Gray Twill Fabric and completely LOVE it! It is the perfect contrast to the Navy Blue Ikat fabric I had left over from my Master Bedroom Makeover. Online Fabric Store also carries a few similar prints to the Navy Blue Ikat fabric as well! You can find some additional options here, here, here and here.
The frames were purchased at Target (of course) and already came with the white mats (lucky me!). I bought three of them to hang in a row, each frame hanging vertically. I went for the dark stain and stark white mat so the fabric would really stand out. I first laid out my fabric to see how much each frame would need. These frames have an 8×10 opening, so I cut my fabric to fit, giving myself a few inches on all sides for overlap. I taped my fabric onto the back of my mat with some masking tape, and tada! You’re ready to place them in your frames to hang on your wall.
And here we have the before and after:
