This project’s a great one for re-using stuff that you might have stored in a cupboard somewhere, particularly old wooden photo frames!
I know that the ‘framed fabric’ concept is not a new one, but I thought I’d use it as one of my projects for the blog because it fits in nicely with the ‘using what you've got’ decorating style.
I was very lucky to already have a good supply of second-hand furniture (all of the furniture you can see in these photos is second-hand), and I was also able to find some good bargains for the soft furnishings.
For example, (in one of the other bedrooms in this house), the material that I made the curtains and cushions out of cost me $1 per metre from a Spotlight bargain table. In this bedroom featured here I purchased these doona covers on special from Ezibuy, but used everything else that I already had.
I had lots fabric leftover from another ‘red’ project that I’d done, so I used it again in this room for the cushions. Then I wanted to coordinate some artwork with the bed covers.
So I simply cut out some pieces of material, placed them inside the photo frames, and hung them up again. So quick and easy!
