I’m still working on making over the family room. One of my weekend projects was to update the espresso brown Ikea panels that were hanging in the room.
I figured adding a little burlap would add some texture to the panels along with a graphic effect.
I add a 15” burlap stripe.
And because I like to be unconventional I sewed the top part of the burlap fabric and hot glued the bottom part ((smile)). I had put the sewing machine away and didn’t feel like hauling it back out, guess I was having a lazy moment. But I knew the hot glue will hold. I have window mistreatments (THANK you Nester) hanging in my living room for almost 4 years now and they are still holding beautifully.
So this is my big dilemma with them …
should I leave them as they are, in their rustic looking form
or should I finish off the burlap edge at the top and bottom of the burlap stripe where the two fabrics meet? I was thinking maybe with just a simple white ribbon?
What do you think??
Thanks for stopping by & I hope you have a fabulous week!
