I have been SOOOOOO stinkin' busy getting this wedding stuff together that I honestly can't beleive that it is in 8 days! We have gotten a lot done but we still have sooooo much more to do. On the agenda tonight is actually getting a dress for Alysia and a suit for James.
Along with my absence, I haven't been posting my Inspired Spotlights on Thursdays! Technically, even though it's late, it is still Thursday so I thought I would kick off my return by sharing my love for Amanda over at Every Crafty Endeaver. She has a wonderful craft to share with you all but there are many, many more over at her blog. I'll let her take it from here.
Then he assembled the pieces for me. He screwed one screw into each corner.
He would get the screws started...
... add wood glue...
Then I simply pulled the fabric over the frame...
... and using my staple gun, stapled the fabric in the grooves.
I completed one side and then I moved to the opposite side. On the opposite side I pulled the fabric tight so I wouldn't have any sagging.
For the corners I folded the fabric into a triangle,
then pulled it really tight and stapled it in place.
It made for nice clean corners.
(sort of how you wrap a gift)
I repeated this on each corner then finished stapling my sides.
Pulling tight as I went.
And that was it!
For some reason in this picture it looks like there is a crease in the fabric - but I assure you - there isn't. Strange.
I love it!
Next, I hung it up on this bare wall.
Sorry about the craptastic pictures. This room is dark with no real light from the sunshine so I had to use my flash. yuck.
But here she is hung up! I love it - and it really does add a bunch of color with that blue to that room. I have been trying to add blue into my decorating and I think this works out really great.
I bought the fabric at Hobby Lobby.
They have a great selection of home decor fabrics that are so cute!
The Fabric cost me about $23 with tax.
The frame cost less than $2 -
So I am into it for about $25!
Not bad. Not bad at all!!
When you have a moment, please come over and stop by!
I would love to meet you.
Thanks so much Amanda! I think it looks FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing!!
