So now I have 5 yards of yellow oil cloth laying around if anyone wants some. Do I have any raincoat makers who follow Inspired Whims? If so, I'll give you a really good price. ;o)
I did, however, use some of my oil cloth scrap pieces to add to a project I've had laying in wait...so no love lost.
A friend gave me this white Ethan Allen headboard for our guest room, and it had been blending into the "asylum white" walls a little too much. I didn't want to paint it because I liked the matte white finish to counter such a baroque shape. My husband wisely suggested backing it with a fabric as a temporary update with a little pop, and that's where the oil cloth came in handy. (True Confessions: I just tacked the oil cloth to the wall behind the headboard)
I already had some goldenrod yellow in the room with a few small accents like the Anthropologie throw pillow in the top photo and a few other items on the other side of the room (below), so the yellow oil cloth fit right on in.
What do you think of our little update? Was the yellow oil cloth utilized well??
Any takers for the extra oil cloth? Make an offer I can't refuse...or any offer at all.
