Decorating

Decorating before moving isn't the smartest thing to do but we made a few little changes and wanted to share.  We picked up some fabric for our DIY table runner and bought a couple patterns.  We were going for bold, bright colorful patterns that were geometric and/or with white.  I'd say we found the best they had to offer.  Twice while shopping people commented that the rolls of fabric I carried around prior to cutting were 'so pretty'!  Positive comments from strangers = success! 

We have so many extra frames lying around we decided to just frame a couple and hang them about the apt.  Two got casually placed on our bedroom dressers.  Remember when I painted it all white?




We hung the other 3 smaller 8"x10" frames vertically.  Note 1: that green fabric isn't framed in the same direction.  What that done purposefully?  I'd like to say it was... maybe.  Note 2: ignore dying plant on top of bookshelf. 


I really like how the fabric in the frame isn't stretched taunt.  It's just cut and placed casually and ads a little formal but rustic flare.  We still have so many frames lying around who knows what we'll frame next?  Most of them are black but I've been eyeing that white paint to change things up.
