DIY Painted Striped Curtains for a Boy’s Room

I love painting fabric.  I have done my fair share of it as well. My painted stenciled headboard was even featured in Better Homes & Gardens magazine last year.  I also have a great post I put together on my top tips for painting fabric.  When Erin and I were trying to figure out how to add color into her son’s room painting striped curtains went to top of the list – especially when we couldn’t find fabric in the exact colors she was looking for.  Since I had painted curtains previously I knew this would be a simple project – especially with both of us working on it together. It was a great way to tie all the colors we wanted in the room.

DIY Chair Backer Bows {+Cyber Monday Deals}

Put a bow on it.  That’s my mantra. Bows just make everything cuter. I have grand plans to repaint my black kitchen table and chairs one day.  I am kind of over the dark black and want to lighten them up at bit.  In the meantime, I busted out some fabric from the Online Fabric Store and added some bows to the back. \

And today on Cyber Monday you can get $15 off an order of $75 with the code “INFARRANTLY15”.  Plus they have over 100 fabrics already reduced to 30% off including the one I used for today’s project.

Fabric Wall Art Decor

I get asked often how to decorate large walls inexpensively.  Buying art or frames adds up when you have lots of space to cover.  I always come back to saying, “Wrap canvases in fabric.”  The fabric choices are endless and really are works of art in themselves.  So when I set out to decorate the planked and 2” x 4” shelves I knew I would use fabric to bring pops of color to that wall.  Now you can look for deals on canvases to wrap or you can make your own for EVEN CHEAPER.  Here’s how.

Sewing Machine Dust Cover

Last week I showed you some of the new fabrics from the HGTV Fabric line from Joann Fabrics.  I decided to use the Ring Around Peacock fabric to make a sewing machine dust cover for my Singer 160 machine.  The plastic one that came with it was terrible and I think my hot glue gun had attacked it.  For some reason I kept pushing this project off thinking it would be hard to do.  Once I got started I realized it was so simple and literally took me less than 30 minutes to make.
