Guest Bedroom Makeover: Part 2 Wall Art

This is the inspiration fabric for my guest room makeover. I wanted something bright and colorful. This fabric is in the same collection as the Birdie Bag I made last week.

I found these three frames at a yard sale for $2 total! I obviously didn’t go for them because of the art.

But look at the frames. The color picks up on the dresser I just refabbed.

I took the pieces of art out of the frames and stapled the fabric to it with just a regular desk stapler.

Then I Windexed (that is totally a word!) the glass and taped the fabric covered art in place.

Simple simon! Art on the cheap…I love it.

Now I just have to finish painting the bedroom and hang these bad boys on the wall.


P.S. I vowed I would never decorate with the colors my mom does. I tend to lean towards blues, greens, browns and reds. She loves the bright colors like pink, purples, lime, turquiose, and magenta. I keep telling myself I must have chosen this fabric thinking of my mom because she stays in the guest room a lot. But maybe I am becoming like my mom in my old age. Next thing I know I will collect bird figurines and put towels over my chairs to protect them from wear. ;-)

    Oh no. It happens. You WILL become your mother.

    The other day as I was trying to pose the boys for a picture, one of them crossed his arms, rolled his eyes and said, "You guys, she is getting just like Gramma with all these pictures!"

    You can't stop it: death, taxes, and becoming your mother.

    (Cute frame rehabs…)

    NEVER!! I draw the LINE at putting towels/sheets/covers over the couch like BOTH our mommas do. UGH! Not gonna happen. I vow to intervene first. This I promise you my cuz. You can count on me.

  • Simply Susan

    Love the new art!

    And yes, I hear my mother coming out of my mouth all the time…it's horrifying, lol! ;o)

  • Mom Taxi Julie

    Those are so cute! Love the fabric.

    I always say "my mother just flew out of my mouth"

  • So Bella

    Lol, I know whatchya mean. I love my mom to bits, and I'm totally becoming my mom… repeating myself, forgetting things, head in the clouds. Totally inevitable.

    My grandparents are Italian and cover their nice furniture with sheets (they used to use plastic!) so they don't get ruined… well, they look not so nice all covered up! Still have the funky toilet seat covers & little doll that covers the spare toilet paper roll. Gotta love it!

    Great job on the art, I love the colors!

    What great artwork! I have been looking for something to hang in the bedroom I am re-doing and that is definitely an idea. I do like the finish on those frames. Definitely a great find. Jackie

    Honey, sweetheart, baby, lovey, darlin….?

    If "becoming like your mother' is the worst thing that happens to you……..you're doing Okay. ;)

    Love you!
    Your mother

  • Mom

    Oh! By the way……..beee-utiful pictures! :) Just love the colors!

    (hehehehhehehehhe…..in an evil laugh)

    I can't wait to see the final room!

  • Lindy

    Isn't it strange how that happens? I'm renovating my grandparents former home and I have picked out colors that I swear I would have never used, but they happen to be my grandmother's favorite. She kept sheets on the couch as well, so I am waiting for that to suddenly seem like a good idea to me :-)

  • MiMi

    I had a nice "you aren't becoming your mother" comment, but then I red Viviennes, and I realize, it's true.
    Anyway, those frames are fab and so are you! And your mom must be too!

  • Carrie

    I decorate with reds, yellows, greens, and blues…

    NEVER PINK, NEVER, EVER, EVER (EVER) PURPLE.

    But I like what you did. I like it a lot.

    Ugh.

  • PixieVonAzia

    LOVE that pattern. Maybe it being bright colors and flowers together. I like bright colors and it never reminds me of a mother :)

  • frillsfluffandtrucks

    Those frames are perfect with that fabric you framed. Good find! Oh and Windexed totally is a word!
