If you're a fan of `a casarella's Facebook page you probably know that I went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market this past Sunday. (And if you're not a Facebook fan, I'd love it if you'd become one. You can find my FB page here.)
Anyway, the flea market was amazing and will definitely require its own post. It's going to take me a few days to digest the whole thing, though, so that post will have to wait. (That's really code for, "I took 500 pictures and need to sort through them all...)
Anyhoo, I did manage to do a small flea market inspired project that I can share with you today.
It started at a booth that had a table full of these:
What are they, you ask? Good question. Originally they were some sort of fabric samples. My best guess is upholstery but I could be waay off. Anyway, the moment I saw them I envisioned them as framed art. Each one was only a dollar so I found two that I liked and went on my way. (Of course in hindsight I wish I'd gotten more but, oh well...)
These were the two I picked. I just love the colors. They remind me of the ocean:
I could tell they were fabric samples by the holes in the top...
The project itself was pretty simple. I picked up a couple of Ribba frames from IKEA...
...and popped the fabric inside.
My only dilemma?
Should the stripes be vertical...
...or should I do one of each?
I'm leaning towards two horizontal since you can see more of the colors that way. I'd love your input if you'd like to leave a comment. You could even leave it on my Facebook page! (Oh I am shameless...)
