Quick Headboard or Wall Panel for Art Display

March 21, 2010 § 2 Comments

Is your artwork getting lost? One of my favorite pieces just seemed to float above the sofa in a sea of beige until I rolled out a piece of fabric and found my solution. I stapled the fabric right to the wall and trimmed it out with three pieces of painted moulding cut on a 45-degree angle with my miter box (handy little gadget!). Voila! Some drama, instant matting, and a terrific way to add color and contrast to an otherwise quiet palette. Especially good if your furniture and wall color are the same!

This technique is also a great way to create a headboard over a bed. The fabric adds height to the room and texture to the wall, and it is more interesting than a square of paint (although that will work too).

Once I decided what I was going to do, purchased the moulding and painted it, the whole project took about an hour to install.
