Wall Art Gallery - SpoonFlower

DIY180.com/artwork gallery/wall art gallery

I am excited to participate in "The Fab Furniture Flippin Contest" for the month of September. The theme is all about "Modern Flair" and the sponsor is SpoonFlower. If you don't know anything about Spoonflower you are missing out on some amazing textiles. SpoonFlower was created as the result of one wifes vision, to create her own design on fabric she can use throughout her home. This one of a kind place is where creative individuals create and upload their designs to SpoonFlower. There is no waste because all textiles are created on demand. They use a digital print process that uses water based pigment inks and dyes. They have over 350,000 designs from independent designers throughout the world, there are plenty to choose from. As a participant in this contest, I received a discount on the fabric I chose, but all the opinions are entirely my own. This post contains sponsored links for SpoonFlower

As I was looking at all my options on SpoonFlower, I was in awe with all the gorgeous designs that I can have printed on high quality fabrics or wallpaper. Nevertheless I found a fabric that resonated with me. When I first opened the package, I have to say I was blown away by the gorgeous design and fabric. I did not expect for the print to look like a piece of artwork so enter plan B. I didn't want to sew a huge pillow, so I made this fabric into art for my office. 

I didn't have a frame large enough so I created a wooden frame. I simple stapled the fabric to the back of the frame and I now have a new work of art for my office. I love it and the saying just speaks to me. Don't you love it?

The trees on this fabric look like it's been hand painted.

The fabric is so strong and sturdy. It's a gorgeous fabric.

It has taken me about 3 months to finish my office/homeschool room. I know it's  a long time, but I had some issues with finding the right items and just busyness of life. I am happy to say though, I am going shopping this week for a rug and curtains. Fingers cross I find these items and I can reveal the room. 


I want to thank SpoonFlower for providing their gorgeous fabric for this contest. I also would like to thank the ladies over at the Fab Furniture Flipping Contest ™ for this great challenge. If you are a furniture flipper and interested in being a part of next month's challenge, contact the ladies over at info@fabfurnitureflippincontest.com to find out how!


I am linking my project at Colleen's blog, 58 Water Street  and Carrie's blog, Thirty Eighth Street. Please head over there to see what other fabulous flippers have done.
