Disclaimer: I got this idea from my crafty friend Jola a couple years ago and only just now got around to making it happen in my own home.
1. Find some fabric that makes you feel really good. I'm featuring Lotta Jansdotter again.
2. Stretch it over a canvas frame (this one purchased from Flax for $50 but probably could have been done for less) and staple gun away.
3. Add some picture hanging gear and put it on your wall.
Much less expensive than a piece of art--and easy to change out when you get sick of it.
