Modern DIY

Sick as I may be about talking about penny-pinching, it's a reality for all of us. But being on a smaller budget doesn't have to mean forsaking style -- or home improvements.

My husband and I have FINALLY began to finish our basement a bit at a time. We're going for a funky, urban entertainment area. Bar, sleek sofa, low-lying coffee table, and artwork.

We have the sofa (a white three seater to be slip-covered in black, $79 from Ikea!), a glass-top coffee table (removed from our small-ish living room due to large dog), and my favorite find -- a 1960s buffet with sliding doors left by the previous homeowners, and now filled with various martini glasses and barware. This weekend I sanded it, painted it charcoal and white (remnants from my office remodel), and applied lacquer for a nice sheen. The only thing missing was wall art.

It may not seem like a big deal, but large artwork can become extremely costly. And then...

Wall art

Welcome to Textiles Art, a site loaded with fabrics, wall hanging kits, shower curtains, etc -- everything needed for those of us searching for mod, funky, inspiring textiles.

For $100 the Kippis design (above) in 44" x 54" and wall hanging kit is mine!
