If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you know I love participating in the Show Us Your Life series over at Kelly's Korner. During master bedroom week in September, I commented on Laura's bedroom post because we have the same bedding set. Laura visited my bedroom post and liked our new DIY wall art. After emailing back and forth, we decided to swap fabric.
Laura's bedroom completed with her new wall art.
If you like the bedding, it's an 8 piece set (Bedskirt, 2 Shams, 2 Decorative Pillows, Comforter, 2 Euro Shams) from Target that's still available here. Young House Love created one of their design dilemma mood boards using this bedding here. Jake and I bought our set a year ago and it's still in great shape. I put the brown section of the comforter at the bottom of our bed but everyone else seems to put it at the top. :)
The DIY wall art using IKEA frames in our master bedroom
You can see more photos of Laura's room and learn how she made her wall art here. I used the same technique to make this wall hanging for our aqua guest room.
I covered a large printed canvas that used to hang above our couch (photo below from 2008) that was collecting dust in the basement.
BTW, that's what our I furniture looked like before we got Brewster and started covering everything in big fleece blankets to combat fur and big dirty paws.
Here are the Joann's fabrics that I sent to Laura.
Dwell Studio's Soft Scrolls in Espresso - still available Also available in white on green.
Eddie Bauer Blue Batik - clearance find used in the EB Piedmont collection
Laura sent me fabric from Joann's too.
Here's the current Show Us Your Life party schedule:
I love glimpses into other peoples lives so the Show Us Your Life blog party series is one of my favorite things about blogging. If you visit our party buttons page, you'll see that I participate (irregularly) in a variety of DIY home and craft linky parties as well as new friend parties. I know some people knock new friend parties but that's how I've discovered some of my favorite bloggers. I have many interests and I enjoy 'meeting' lots of people outside the home/craft blog circles too (hi Kris!).
Do you join any linky parties regularly? If so, what are your favorites?
Hopefully Laura's completed project will be the kick in the pants I needed to use the aqua fabric I received (need to pick my apron pattern first). Thanks again to Laura for swapping fabric with me! :)
