Inexpensive Wall Decor: Fabric Wrapped Canvasses

Inexpensive Wall Decor: Fabric Wrapped Canvasses

Back when we were living in our apartment, I was faced with a very long wall behind the couch. I tried a variety of different solutions until I finally landed on fabric wrapped canvasses as a solution. It was cost-effective, and brought in some much needed color in the space. Turns out it was especially cost-effective as we STILL have these canvasses, wrapped in the same fabric and I plan on hanging them in the guestroom.

Here's a throwback to the original post:

I found a way to solve the long wall dilemma I had!  Thanks to lots of advice from you, lots of staring at the wall, and even some brainstorming with my husband, we finally found a cost-effective & pretty solution for our wall.  Once I figured out that I’d like to fill up the wall, we measured out the space we had & worked backward from there.  We considered various frames (mostly from Ikea) but the cost of 6-8 frames add up quickly!  For the cost of about two frames, we picked up 10 canvas on sale at Michaels. (We only used 8 here, so there are 2 more waiting in the guestroom).

The blank canvases hung on the wall for about a week before I figured out what I wanted to do with them.  As strange as it was, the room already looked better with blank canvases on the wall!  Each canvas is 16″x20″, so it took 2/3rds of a yard to cover two panels.  I found the fabric at JoAnns in the home decor section.  The mirror on the right still needs to be hung on the wall & I’m looking for a different lamp for the side table.  You’re also getting a sneak peek of the newly dyed slipcovers on the rattan chairs.
