Anyhoo, I thought I would share a tiny teaser of a nursery project I completed the other night in less than an hour. It is nothing to necessarily brag about, but I think it came out nicely and provides a lovely visual impact. Oh, and it is a easy and affordable way to display/store a baby keepsake.
I simply bought this pre-made shadow box at Michael's craft store and replaced the dark velvet backing with some of my yellow scrap upholstery fabric. I then mounted two sterling spoons that were gifted to the bambino. Voila!
Normally, I think the term "shadow box" is scary and conjures up images of old lace and locks of hair...maybe even some doll parts. But, in this case, I think it is a cute way to display some of the tiny's keepsakes.
Just a sneak peek of more to come from almost-completed nurseria!
Now, onto two big fabric-related announcements, both of which made my decorating day. You may have already heard about this news via two awesome design blogs, Visual Vamp and Elements of Style.
First, our Nola Vamp advised blog land that Dwell Studio released fabrics for a FAVORITE site of mine, http://www.fabrics.com/. What a delight!
We can all live the Dwell dream for only $15.98 a yard! Check it all out here.
Now, drumroll please....Elements of Style announced that our very own Miss Amanda Talley will be releasing a line of fab fabrics she designed based upon her iconic paintings.
These are STUNNING. Imagine a beautiful bench or pillows done in Amanda's fabric. Too hot to handle!
If you are interested in ordering your very own fabrics from Amanda (in a variety of different grades), contact her through her website. And, seriously, if you do....you better send pics to Gimlet!
