A Fabric Masterpiece



OH! How I wish you knew the satisfaction...the happiness...the JOY...that this brings me! This playroom redo is finally coming to an end, and the pure euphoria that flows through me when I enter this room is simply indescribable.

BUT, I'm not there yet. I'll save you all the sappiness until my final playroom post.

Today, I'll talk about this wall.
To be honest, I really intended on creating a picture gallery on this wall...I even had the thrifted frames dusted off and ready to go, but at the last minute I scratched it and went in another direction.

Instead, I gathered up several bold fabric pieces and as many antique wooden pants hangers I could find.


Because I knew the fabric and hanger weren't going to be that heavy, I opted to use Command hooks. (Surely I've told you how much I love these things...)
I didn't do much measuring. I more so concentrated on spacing, making sure they were all about 2 inches apart.


But, then I realized my fabric was sagging on the corners, so I....


cut up a few strips of cardboard and glued them to the back of my fabric with spray adhesive. 


Perfect, easy fix.

  22. Oh my...this is so very charming in this playroom. I have been selling these as picture frames in my shop, so you might want to try some 8x10 prints, that's if you ever want to change it up. Thanks for sharing at my party.

    Blessings,
    Linda

  35. Holly, this is beautiful! I love that little table--did you just cut down a big one? And what can you tell me about those chairs? I have two of them but they are yellow. How wonderful that you found four of them!

    1. It's actually a regular sized table...kitchen table we found at Pier 1 years ago...the picture probably makes it look small...
      I found the chairs a while ago at a thrift store...there were 8 of them total! My sister-in-law and I split them up! I've been in love ever since! :)

  37. I love this use of vintage fabric. I have a blank wall in our entry way that could use the same treatment. Fun!

    I've pinned and shared on FB!

  39. This is a marvelous idea! I might copy it to display some of my vintage linens. My father-in-law had a closet full of those hangers and I was going to donate them to Goodwill. Now, I'm going to donate them to ME!

  40. LOVE this! It would also be great in a craft or sewing room-a great way to store fabric scraps AND have decor-dual purpose! Of course, you wouldn't be able to glue the cardboard to the back if you intend to use them.

  44. Love this! I was wondering how you got the fabric not to sag & now I know! Great tip. Sarah

  45. This gave me a GREAT idea!!! I have been working on organizing/storing my craft/jewelry supplies, having this type hanger I know that it can hold a decent amount (thickness) you/I could put several pieces of material or crafting paper and use it to organize and store like colors/patters as well as make a pretty wall!!
