Hey all!
 
We inherited a huge sleigh bed that made our old bedroom wall art look like dollhouse furniture. I found a 1980's/1990's art piece in an old barn sale that had a good base. It's frame was sturdy and the backing was strong. It also already had all of the necessary brackets for mounting. I decided to cover the entire thing with fabric (rather than frame the fabric. All you need for the project is the item you're covering, staple gun, staples, and fabric. I used a little over two yards of fabric to cover the 5 foot by 4 foot piece. I stapled the fabric directly to the frame. Be careful to not pull the fabric too tight or in a certain direction, especially if you are using a geometric fabric. This will make it look messy.
