Then he assembled the pieces for me. He screwed one screw into each corner.
He would get the screws started...
... add wood glue...
Then I simply pulled the fabric over the frame...
... and using my staple gun, stapled the fabric in the grooves.
I completed one side and then I moved to the opposite side. On the opposite side I pulled the fabric tight so I wouldn't have any sagging.
For the corners I folded the fabric into a triangle,
then pulled it really tight and stapled it in place.
It made for nice clean corners.
(sort of how you wrap a gift)
I repeated this on each corner then finished stapling my sides.
Pulling tight as I went.
And that was it!
For some reason in this picture it looks like there is a crease in the fabric - but I assure you - there isn't. Strange.
I love it!
Next, I hung it up on this bare wall.
Sorry about the craptastic pictures. This room is dark with no real light from the sunshine so I had to use my flash. yuck.
But here she is hung up! I love it - and it really does add a bunch of color with that blue to that room. I have been trying to add blue into my decorating and I think this works out really great.
I bought the fabric at Hobby Lobby.
They have a great selection of home decor fabrics that are so cute!
The Fabric cost me about $23 with tax.
The frame cost less than $2 -
So I am into it for about $25!
Not bad. Not bad at all!!
