Guess what! My little one is HERE! Woo-hoo! I am so excited my brand new baby B is here, and she is the sweetest little peanut I could ever ask for. All this week, I am excited to share bits and pieces of my little princesses nursery with you. (And a big reveal of the whole room at the end of the week.)
Today I am excited to share my little bit of art I used to decorate the walls.
I went for a very simple, glamorous, slightly vintage feel for little lady's room, and these framed fat quarter pieces look wonderful on one of her large walls. See how I did it (in under 10 minutes, excluding drying time) below!
First, I took a large IKEA frame and removed the matte.
I took a fat quarter I ordered from the Fabric Shoppe (Ruby by Moda, my new obsession), and laid out the squares across the frame in a pattern I liked.
I then painted a layer of fabric mod podge onto the back of each square. Let them dry completely. Add a thin coating of fabric mod podge to the paper backing that comes in the frame (or the cardboard backing if your paper backing has dark lettering and shows through the fabric), and adhere the fabric to the paper or backing.
Because you already coated the back of the fabric with one coat of mod podge, should you want to recover the fabric later, it should peel off with minimal effort. I am all for nondestructive uses of fabric- when you get bored with one application, you can turn it into something else!
