Low-cost decorating fun with fabric!


Fabric can be a smart, cost-effective solution to your decorating woes and can create impressive visual impact in even the smallest spaces or in the most empty of walls.
 
1.  Use fabric as your headboard. Instead of having a furniture maker create a customized tufted headboard, consider hanging a piece of fabric over your bed to create a similar effect. A print can easily draw the eye to your bed, making it the centerpiece of your room; while a neutral piece of fabric with dainty highlights like eyelets or delicate die-cuts can add whimsy and an ethereal quality to a little girl’s room or a nursery.
 


2.  Update with new upholstery. Whether you’re dressing up a drab gray padded office chair or an inherited sofa from your grandmother, using new fabric (even fabric typically not meant for furniture) can instantly bring a new lease on life to pieces you would have otherwise written off.
 

3.  Turn fabric into wall art. Still can’t afford a painting from an art gallery? Consider using a piece of patterned fabric to hang on your walls instead. Keep delicate doily handkerchiefs in simple, department store picture frames. Have a large mural-like print stretched out over a wooden frame. Bring a floral patterned piece of cloth to a professional to have it framed.
