Yards and yards of neutral colored fabric for a song! You can bleach it or even dye it. It even comes in different weights. I always wash it first in warm water and a little bleach, then iron it if it’s very wrinkled.
I used some to make valances and pillows
I even upholstered a chair for my granddaughter’s American Girl Doll!
I had some tin plaques from the Dollar Store. Don’t know why I bought them. They were pretty ugly, but I figured I could do something with them–eventually! I must have walked past them a thousand times before I was inspired to actually do something with them.
I drilled two holes about an inch in and an inch down from the corners. Then, I wrapped them with drop cloth and hot glued it to the back and trimmed the fabric nice and neat.
I centered a stencil, taped it down and then filled it in with–
you’ll never guess–no, not paint–
black Sharpie Marker! Yup! Worked just fine!
They still needed something, so I pulled out some black and cream fabric, ripped it into strips and made some fabric rosettes.
I used jute string for the hanger, but it looked weird, so I cut a strip of the rosette fabric and glued it over the string. Glued a rosette over one knot and tied a small strip of fabric around the other and there you have it!
Really pretty, really simple French inspired Shabby Chic wall decor!
Wonder what I can use drop cloth for next . . . .
These plaques will be available in the shop– www.shop.thedecoratednest.com
