Sometimes you can find a particularly beautiful piece of fabric but have no use for it. Rather than leaving it in a box you can instead frame it for display. It's as simple as cutting the fabric to fit your frame. A particularly chic home decor look would be to buy 4 small simple frames, cut the fabric to fit and display the frames in a quad grouping. For a very ornate yard of fabric that looks like art, stretch it over a wooden frame. This can imitate the same look of a statement tapestry.
Cover A Lampshade
If you have a few feet of fabric you can use it to cover an old lampshade. You won't even need a
sewing machine. All you have to do is remove any trim or decorative ribbon, roll out your fabric and cut it to fit and use a fabric adhesive to attach to the lampshade. This is a really simple trick but can update the whole look of your room.
Change Up Your Headboard
Similarly to a lampshade, you can also cover over a headboard. This project will require about 3 yards of durable fabric, fabric adhesive and a decorative trim. The process is similar to recovering any other upholstered furniture. Nailhead trim is perfect for adding some stylish hardware while still helping to attach the fabric to the headboard.
Perhaps the easiest way of using some beautiful fabric is to cover upholstered dining room chair seats. All you need to do is remove the seat, take off the old fabric, cover with new fabric by stapling the fabric onto the wood support, and reattach back to the chair. This instantly gives a fresh look to your dining room with minimal effort.
Sew A Throw Pillow Cover
If you have a sewing machine and basic skills, using some statement fabric to cover outdated throw pillows is perfect. You can either make pillows from scratch and stuff them yourself or, an easier option, would be to make simple covers and put pillow inserts.
Fabric can be used in many different ways to update your home decor. Use your imagination and don't be afraid to experiment.
