I have been working on my new wall art for months. Collecting hoops and gathering fabrics. Some of these fabrics are new and others are vintage. I wanted it to be fun and colorful and full of different patterns. This is in our dining room which is also my office area.
We finally decided on a new color for this room. Soon enough it will be a fun shade of aqua. I almost choose a shade similar to an orange creamsicle. I'm making over my desk too. The black is chipping and I want a something brighter. Maybe I could find an old chair that I could reupholster and ditch this one.
My favorite part is how the hoops wrap around my desk. I promise you I had the most difficult time getting it just right. I have several holes that need to be patched and I considered starting over numerous times. I suggest laying the hoops on the floor and rearranging as you feel necessary. Hang each hoop using a small nail. The majority of these hoops have been thrifted. I paid anywhere from .25 to $1.00 for each of them.
I may have went a little crazy with the polka dot fabrics. What can I say I have a thing for polka dots. They make me happy. I carried the hoops onto the connected wall. I am planning on adding a few more here and there in time. I would recommend getting a lot of smaller hoops to fill in little spaces. They are the perfect size for any fabric scraps you are holding onto. Even if you have a collection of fabric go and pick out some new prints that you love.
I can't wait to finish this space and share it with you!
