I have become a bit obsessed with fascinators. I started buying feathered hairclips and headbands awhile ago, but then after the royal wedding, I was fascinated with the crazy fascinators. As my collection has grown, my dresser has been taken over with them.
I’d seen people who’d wrapped an oatmeal canister in fabric. I liked the idea, and definitely need it for my headbands with feathers that I don’t want to smash. But I wanted one I could hang on the wall. Laying in bed one night, I thought of a great idea for a hanging headband organizer. Voila! It worked! And while I was at it, I made the oatmeal container one, too.
This week, I’ll show you how I made the hanging version. Next week, I’ll show you the oatmeal container display.
Here’s how I did it:
Last weekend I took an upholstery class and loved it! Had been wanting to do it for a very long time. Upholstery has always intimidated me a bit, so I was glad to learn a lot.
However, there are some pieces that are actually quite simple to do with no real training. This chair is one of them – I did this a while back and it was quite easy. I bought this chair on CraigsList for a bit more than I should have paid. I liked the size of it and the shape, but the fabric was not pretty. Kinda gross actually. But it fit in my front window alcove so perfectly. I figured this one was a project I could tackle.
Supplies you’ll need
- Staple remover/flathead screwdriver/pliers
- Fine grit sandpaper
- Spray Paint
- Fabric Scissors
- Staple gun/staples
- Glue gun/glue sticks
- Enough fabric to cover the chair (I highly recommend fabric made specifically for home décor – it is heavier and will last longer)
- Trim (cord, etc)
