Here is an economical & versatile way to display anything your heart treasures or that you believe is worth showcasing on an empty white wall in any room for your home or business. I chose to create a fashion jewelry display for my home office but this can also be used for displaying your treasured photos, thoughtful notes or favorite quotations. If you prefer to keep it simple, you can use your chosen fabric color combo & simply use the fabric print as wall art.
Luckily enough I found two wooden 16 x 20 frames at a local garage sale for $5.00 each. You can opt to paint it a silvery or golden finish. It all depends on your taste of course. I chose to stick with the actual color since it looked great with my unpainted wall.
I also had on hand a 30 x 40 white foamboard which I got at a nearby office supply store for $5.00. I then cut it into two pieces to fit the size of my frames. Choosing the fabrics was the real fun part for me since I chose two different fabric prints that I hoped was a good color combination. As you can see I chose bright happy colors such as lime green and a subtle orange. 3/4 of a yard of fabric is plenty and great enough it was on sale for 30% off at the fabric store totaled at $5.75 per fabric. Other materials needed are pins and two picture hangers.
Here is the finished product! No staples, no glue, just put it all together and voila! It's fabric wall art with a multi-purpose. You can change it up each season and use the replaced fabric for a future sewing project.
