There are two important things to know when it comes to DIY projects for your home:
- Never turn down free wall art.
- Know when to ask for help.
I inherited this wall art from a family member that moved — obviously not my style, but they filled the space above my couch perfectly. After debating a few different options, I walked into a local home decorator fabric store and literally gasped when I saw this hexagon print. I’m sure you’re shocked.
My aunt suggested using batting to give it a little dimension, and I casually mentioned how fun it would be to work on it together. And by “casually mentioned,” I mean “begged her to help me.” She gets all the credit for this one — I just did as I was told.
It actually turned out to be pretty simple, but it was still a two-person project. We popped the art out of the frame, sprayed it down with spray glue, then attached batting and trimmed it to the edge. The two-person part came in with wrapping the piece in the fabric — she held the fabric where it needed to be to keep the pattern straight, and I taped it down. Then we popped it back into the frame!
Have you repurposed any of your wall art? What did you do?
P.S. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! See you again on Monday!
