Michele from The Scrap Shoppe had a black dress hanging in her closet that was pretty boring and barely ever worn. She was inspired by Anthropologie to give the dress a makeover – cross stitch style! However, the kicker is that this project actually requires NO sewing. Instead, Michele achieved the look of cross stitching […Read More]
Jordan from Oh Happy Day and her team worked together to create this bright and beautiful striped tablecloth – with PAINT! I am a huge fan of painting on fabric, so this project is right up my alley. Jordan simply taped off stripes on a store-bought tablecloth and then painted them in with fabric paint. […Read More]
Over the past few days, I have shared a painted hand towel, painted pillow cover, and painted tablecloth. Why not throw a painted duvet cover into the lineup of fabulous fabric painting projects?!? Jackie of Teal & Lime contributing at 4 Men 1 Lady shares how she transformed a plain white duvet cover and sham by using fabric paint to give it a bold, graphic pattern. The result is just as beautiful as pricey bedding but for less than half the price!
When Charisa from Madtown Macs saw West Elm’s digitally monogrammed hand towels, she immediately loved them and swooped some up as gifts. Sadly, Charisa never got one for herself and knew it was time to change that. She easily created her own modern and bold monogrammed hand towel with a freezer paper stencil and fabric paint. I am all about painting some fabric!
Jacque of The DIY Village loves the cute assortment of kitchen towels sold at Anthropologie. She was inspired to transform a plain, inexpensive flour sack towel from Wal-mart into a pretty patterned towel of her own using a stamp and fabric paint. Jacque says, “It was so easy I’m kicking myself for not making one sooner!”
Riva from Uno, Dos, Très Chic is not a fan of traditional baby motifs, so this chevron painted rug was the perfect addition to her son’s nursery. Riva created her chevron design but cutting over 200 rectangles from freezer paper. (How’s that for dedication?) I really like how Riva alternated the two slightly different shades of blue, as it adds a bit more visual interest. Most importantly, it looks like Riva’s little man likes his new stylin’ rug.
As I recently shared on Infarrantly Creative, I am changing things up in my family room after about ten years of the same color scheme. My first big undertaking was painting striped curtains. Considering color, pattern, price, and length, I always have trouble finding just the right curtains, so painting my own was the perfect option. I absolutely love how they came out and cannot believe the difference they make!
Jessie from Imperfectly Polished loves giving handmade gifts. Jessie says, “I wanted to make a gift for some friends of ours who were getting married and decided to make these modern, fun monogrammed pillow as part of their wedding gift. I think it will add a great, personal touch to their new apartment! I made […Read More]
