I showed this Marimekko fabric last week in this post, and this weekend Morgan built me a custom frame for it (isn’t he handy?!).
It really is the perfect fabric for a wall hanging – nice and large, and I do love that green color of the pear! Since the white of the fabric was a bit transparent, I also bought some medium brown fabric which we stretched and stapled over the frame. Then we layered the pear fabric on top of this and again stretched and stapled it to the frame.
It turned out exactly as I had hoped!
It looks great against the blue wall color in our den, though it was intended to hang over our stairs. And I think I’d also like it in the bedroom… I just can’t decide!
