Here’s what I came up with:
I wanted to change the design inside the frames, but I also wanted to be able to change it seasonally if the need arises. So instead of just painting over the design, I decided to cover it in fabric. I didn’t want a bold, patterned fabric that would grab your eye, I just wanted something that would fill the space and flow nicely with the decor. I have a bunch of muslin cloth left over from other projects, so I cut squares of it just large enough to wrap around the frame’s insert. I did iron the fabric, but muslin is just a beast to get totally smooth, so I left it as is. It will just add some texture, right? : )
Then I repeated the process with the other two colors until my fabric was full of cute little circles. Don’t worry about filling the entire square, just enough to cover what will show in the frame.
The previous artwork was printed on the frame’s backing, so I painted over the old art with a little bit of white spray paint so it wouldn’t show through the fabric. Once that was dry, I laid the backing onto the center of the wrong side of my fabric.
Then I wrapped the edges of the fabric behind the backing and secured them with a little bit of hot glue. Since the frame didn’t have a separate backing, the hot glue will hold the fabric in place but can still be easily removed if I feel like switching out the fabric. Which knowing me will likely happen at some point!
I cleaned something out of my overflowing closet.
I added some super cute DIY artwork to my breezeway.
It cost me NOTHING to make!
Yep, I’d say this was a total win! Don’t you?
Be on the lookout for more decor makeovers from my
junk treasure closet coming soon!
What treasures do you have waiting for a makeover?
