Framed Fabric In The Kitchen  May 2, 2013 – 00:00

Framed Fabric In The Kitchen

A while back I did a post on framed

fabric. It was so popular that I decided to

update the post,and add in another framed fabric project.

Here is the top of my ice box.

It can be viewed from the living room,

so I want it to look good,ff that is even possible.

I spray painted a wood frame in a lovely

Sweet Pea pink by Rustoleum.

I then cut a piece of 1950's

kitchen themed fabric to fit.

This fabric was originally an old kitchen curtain.

It is now having a second life,as instant kitchen art.

Aren't the colors great?

I love the aqua and pink combo.

I re-arrange the items on the top of

my ice box regularly-

here is my latest "Ice Box Vignette".

I just love how all of my collectibles,

coordinate perfectly with the farmed piece.

My newest framed piece,below,I put above my stove.

For this one,

I spray painted a similar wood frame in Jade,

by Krylon. I then took some light pink gingham fabric

and cut it to fit for the inside.

In my opinion,you can never go wrong with gingham.

I'm so thrilled with how it looks.

Fresh and perfect for my kitchen.

Our house is very old,early 1920's.

The walls are plaster which makes it incredibly hard

to hang things. I have gotten pretty good at it though.

I of course had to re-arranged my collectibles

on these shelves too.

I love framing fabric.

It allows you to take a special piece of

textile you might have been saving,and show it off.

Fabrics safe for pot holders?

I've got lots or scraps of leftover fabric, much of it 8" wide by various lengths. it is various type of fabric too. I realize the satiny types or the stuff with nylon in it won't be good for potholders, but what about the fleece, flannel and cotton?
Granted, most of what I have is not kitchen themed, but baby/kids/wedding lol, but my daughter likes to sew, and I though making potholders would
1. use up these scraps
2 give her practice
3. she could make them as gifts for Christmas
Heck, I buy potholders for utilitarian reasons, not their asthetic value, so I figure this won't matter.
oh, suggestions?

Some ideas

As a nanny, I usually make gifts with the kids for the parents. Here are some we have done.Clay pot christmas trees. Get 3 clay pots, all the next size up from each other. So like .5 in, 1 in. 1.5 in.Paint them green, stack them up like a pyramid. Sponge on some "snow" white paint. Then decorate with paint or with small christmas themed wooden pieces (in a bag at fabric store) and the tiny strands of lights meant for a xmas villageOrnaments Paint their hand, have them put their print on one of those globe ornaments of any colorPhoto framesI buy cheap frames at the dollar store and small xmas themed erasers from orietal trading

  • Avatar ava ann What are some good Italian kitchen ideas?
    Jun 17, 2007 by ava ann | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    My entire kitchen is done with an Italian/Tuscany theme. I have lots of wine bottles, grapes, and vine arangments throughout the whole thing. What are some other things I can decorate with to add to the theme but not have more grapes, wines bottles or vines?

    • I am married to an Italian for 36 years and have helped in several of his families kitchen. Here are some of the things I notice they all had. They all had several heads of garlic hanging on a string. They had the real st …ie jar filled with cookies. They have a pasta machine handy and big platters on the backs of the counters. They have small lamps on the counters and a big cutting board with a big cutting knife for bread. Hope this helps.
