The Screening

My Venice Text fabric was on backorder for a few weeks, but arrived last week .

I had posted about this screen and the idea of putting the fabric behind it here.  I only had two yards at the time and it wasn’t long enough to start, so I had to order more.  I needed about 6 1/2 yards for the length, but I only needed half the fabric width to fit each panel of the screen.

You can read the original post about the screen hereI was eager to get started, so I measured out the fabric for each section and cut it with a little bigger than I needed.  I used my stapler to attach the fabric to the screen.

Once they were all stapled into place, I trimmed any excess fabric.  And, here it is!

The screen looks wonderful, Kathy! I made my ruffle runner yesterday! I had to coffee stain the ruffle as they didn't have it in ecru. It's the perfect farmhouse touch for my dining room!

I stand corrected - it looks FABULOUS! I was in the minority saying just leave the screen alone. I'm eating my words now. Love it!

Well, I would say it was certainly worth the wait for the fabric. I really like how it adds a vertical line/some height to the room. It looks great, Kathy!

Hey Gal! I came over from Tracy's blog! I knew your name was familiar! I spied one of the little tags you bought from me on the bird cage! Makes me smile!

I love your screen! I would never have thought to use a fabric like that...but it looks great! And really helps carry the eye around the room! You have great style!

I changed blogs, so I will add you to it, and follow you, too.

It's awesome that you opened a shop! I'll be checking it out regularly!

Hope the rest of your week is lovely!!

The screen turned out great...I know you will enjoy it and will probably move it around the room quite often, loving each new look.

I like it too, Kathy! I think you were smart to use such a bold graphic print - to make it stand out behind the grids on the panels. It looks fabulous in your living room.
