I have a small stack of old frames from my last home. Though the frames are outdated and worse for wear, I’ve hung onto them with the idea that one day they would be candidates for a makeover.
The first frame’s flat edges made it the perfect candidate to be covered in fabric.
Carefully press the fabric. Lay the frame over the top and trim the fabric so that there is enough fabric to wrap around the edges of the frame. For my frame I trimmed the fabric with 1-1/2 inches of overlap.
At the corners, I stapled the fabric at the bottom right at the corner. Then I made a fold at the side, like wrapping a gift and staple it into place. For my frame I thought the fold would look better at the sides.
Once the frame back is secured, give the triangles sticking out a firm tug to tighten the fabric on the inside of the frame.
This frame is going to belong to a picture grouping in my family room that celebrates our family.
The next frame is going to get a lift with a bit of spray paint….
