After re-upholstering our dining room chair set, we decided it would be cool to make some wall art showing off the nice fabric that was left over. I made two frames (about 14”x24”) out of some lightly figured black walnut. One has maple-splined miters as shown. Finish is BLO followed by wipe-on poly then paste wax. Enjoy!

You know, if someone has said “Let’s take some left over fabric and frame it!” twenty minutes ago, I would have laughed them out of my shop.

But seeing it done, it works. Its not my tastes, but it works. And I appreciate you sharing it. Because now, I’ll be more open minded about framing other things as well. ::salute!::

@Zinderin – I have to agree. But I have learned that I have an eye for certain things, and my girlfriend has an eye for other things. Until they were hung, I was in the mindset of “this is silly!” But I’m okay with being wrong once in a while!!

Have your say...
