I still haven’t decided what to do with the wall that separates the stairs & entry from the dining room. I’ve thought about a stencil, and about stripes, but last weekend minutes before our guests were due to arrive, I quickly hung our 8 fabric covered canvases on the wall. Partly to hide the swatch of blue test paint, and partly to help the room feel a bit more finished.
If you’re experiencidng some deja vu and you’ve been around for a while, you’re probably recognizing the canvases from our apartment living room wall.
That’s the view from the dining room. Gaps are about 5 inches. We hung everything with the help of our trusty laser level. Right now all of the canvases are on one nail each, which means they get knocked askew – so once we paint this wall, I’ll probably add an extra nail to keep things a little more stable.
Oh and for those who want some details; each canvas is 16×20 (from Michaels with a coupon). The fabrics are form Jo-Anns. I bought 2/3rds of a yard of each which covered two panels with barely any fabric left to spare.
Oh and here’s the view with from the entry. (Spoiler alert: the green and blue in the fabrics look really good with the green on the living and dining room walls and the new blue stairs!)
