You can see here that I attatched 1X4 legs to the back of my board so that it would stand tall against the wall. (I ended up taking the legs off because it stood too tall for my liking).
Here’s where it got time consuming. I covered a piece of cord with burnt orange fabric and sewed it around the edges of my fabric. I thought, “It’s all straight lines…how hard can it be?” I’d never done this before but the sweet lady at the fabric store assured me it was a piece of cake. Our definitions of “a piece of cake” were obviously different. It took me literally HOURS! Cut on the bias here, zipper foot there, 5th broken needle here… If I would have skipped the whole piping trim I would not have needed to sew at all and it really would have been a piece of cake DIY project. FYI.
Here’s the finished result. What do you think? Complete room pics coming tomorrow.
