DIY: textile art


Remember when I showed you that pic of that mudcloth I found for a steal on ebay? Well, it arrived in the mail last week. Yesterday I built the frame and this morning it was stapled and placed in it's new home above the mantle. I'm in love!






It needs more layering, of course, and it has to be hung properly - currently it is sitting on a lucite box used to try out the height! But don't you just love it?!! I have been searching for three years for the right piece to hang in this spot, and there is a great sense of satisfaction at having finally found it. The walls are finally white, we found a sofa last week that D and I both like for this room, and so progress is being made, SLOWLY! Why is it my that projects round here move at a snails pace? Like the barefoot cobbler's children, I suppose :)

I'm off to source fabrics today for a client, it's a perfect day for driving with the wind in your hair.... hope the sun is shining where you are, as well - x am

I love it! It adds a nice bit of ethnic to your room, especially with your stools. My projects aren't much quicker - I'm too easily sidetracked. Sunny and 107F here. :)

Love that fabric! And yes..things move at a snails pace here too! Hubby won't let me paint the living room walls until we figure out what we are going to do. boo!

Love.
I have a huge african textile that used to hang in my daughter's room when she was teeny, and now is folded on the couch. I love the idea of stretching it and using it to hide the TV, but hesitant to put nails or staples in it!

Yours works so well with the colors in that room, and those gorgeous wood stools.
