so i have been getting restless in our little apartment. i wish i had the time and money to totally redecorate and oh if i could paint, i'd be so happy. but thats not realistic. i've been wanting to fill up the space above our mantle for the longest time. we got a mirror that my parents had since i was little, but it was oddly shaped and just didn't do it for me. so i thought of wrapping a canvas with a fabric that i liked. now i know i didn't make up this idea, so i started googling and trying to find the cheapest and effective way. i stumbled across how about orange's blog and realized what i wanted to do. this chick is awesome and her blog is totally addictive.
soooo, i went to hobby lobby after work and after getting a budget and blessing from my sweet husband joel. first off, i could spend hours in that store even if i don't buy anything. but i stumbled upon a great fabric that had a bunch of the colors in our living room. i'm a sucker for paisley. and it was on a MAJOR sale from $15 to $4! i had to have it. then i got the wood frames. i used 40 x 32 and they were so cheap! who knew? i also stumbled across a heart cookie cutter on sale that i've been eying for a while. yes! today was a successful hobby lobby day :)
heres my progress in case you're interested...
a close up...
joel likes and i like so i'm happy. for now :) next project i have on my list is a headboard. i already have a few ideas...any suggestions? we'll see how it goes.
