One of my favorite tricks for creating a 10-minute piece of art is to attach decorative fabric onto a stretcher frame. This is exactly what I decided to do to cover an awkward window that now looks into a tool closet. This piece of art also adds color and style to this small nook that I use for staging, potting and indoor gardening. As I was dreaming what to do with the unused window, I considered a chalkboard, another one of my go-tos, or perhaps a bulletin board, but finally decided I wanted this area to look fresh and uncluttered and a piece of colorful art would bring that look. I purchased my canvas stretcher frame from Amazon in the dimensions of to be 36″ by 48″ to fully cover the window. You can also find these at any art supply store often each piece sold individually. I then found the perfect piece of interior fabric and trimmed it fit the frame size with a little extra on all sides to wrap to the back. This fabric is a floral ikat in teal, orange and lime green. You can purchase it for a great price on this site. Below is the before and after and a tutorial on how I attached fabric to a stretcher to create this instant art. Enjoy! ~ Lia
