As I mentioned in an earlier post I’m in the middle of a lounge room make over. Nothing really drastic, it’s actually more of an update than an overhaul. The point is I’m having fun and Steve’s enjoying the results with minimal impact on the purse strings. One thing I wanted to change was the mantle display and here’s how I did it.
I went to my local quilting shop in search of some extraordinary fabric and I got lucky. I bought 2 fat quarters ($5) of this beautiful batik print on linen and it suits our home so well. We have 2 paintings from Bali and our living areas are of Balinese influence.
Then I bought 2 large frames (39cm x 49cm) on sale from Target for $16 each… with double matting and glass! I also bought 4 matching smaller frames for another project in the hallway, I love them that much.
