This was a crazy affordable project and not to mention easy. I think the end results looks pretty great. I framed some fabric to hang over the huge, bare wall space above our king sized bed.
For a long time I've been looking for something to go over the wall above our bed. It's a big space and I was wrestling with what a mirror would look like because I was afraid it would look disproportionate to the size. I am also sick of having lots of little pieces of artwork around because I can't afford larger pieces that make a bigger statement. Not to mention, larger mirrors were crazy expensive too. The end result of this project gave me some substantial size for an unsubstantial cost.
I started with the Ikea Ribba Frames. These were I think $19.99 each. They're huge so not a bad cost.
I spray painted them gold. I think the can of spray paint was under $5. I like this because it has some sheen but it is more of a darker, brassy gold than cheap and chintzy looking. And then added some ikat fabric that I ordered from here. It was $23/yard and I only needed 1 yard to complete this.
Note: 1 yard is plenty to fill up both frames but if you are trying to repeat a large pattern, you need to be careful about pattern repeat so you can get the look you want.
