Framing Children’s Artwork

This post is inspired by my friend, Penny, in part because she asked me about my process for displaying art or photos on a wall, and in part because I love the way she arranged her daughter’s work in her new kitchen!

I am borrowing her multicolored frames idea because I thought it would be great with the Fiesta ware colors in my kitchen.

Painted Chairs

Yes, you can paint upholstered furniture! One sample-size container of latex wall paint mixed with several bottles of fabric medium was enough to cover two chairs. I had these chairs professionally cleaned before brushing on several layers of the paint and fabric medium. When dry, the texture is more like outdoor fabric, but it’s pretty comfortable, and the bonus is that it wipes clean very easily. Even marker comes right off!
