This is a small DIY project that I did this weekend:
A mini-canvas-textile gallery for my son’s play room:
My inspiration came from a TV segment that aired on Cityline last Thursday, August 16, the “Ikea textile event in New York city”.
When Samantha Pynn (love her show Summer Home) pronounced these words: “ fun and easy project that requires no skills so you don’t need to use a sewing machine”, I knew it was for me. Mary Dobson also from Cityline mentioned this fun black and white inexpensive textile that you can color in.
After viewing this TV segment, I was convinced that I would be able to do my little own DIY project, so Saturday morning I hurried up to the IKEA store. After browsing the store for the 100th time, I went to look for that specific textile and bought a meter of it. (TIDNY at $5.99 per meter)
This DIY project was very simple, I took two old white canvas stretched across a simple wooden frame, wrapped the fabric around it, cut the excess fabric and staple it.
To add a little pop of color, I used some paint and a fabric marker on only a couple of pieces. I used these colors because they are neutral and when my son will get older he will be able to color the rest of the fabric with the colors he will choose.
This weekend DIY project cost under $5.99 + taxes and was very easy to do! I still have fabric left from the meter bought, so I am considering wrapping the rest of it around the lamp shade in Nat’s play room. If I do, I will keep you posted!
