My DIY dish towel art
If you're looking for some bold graphical easy-to-do cheap art, take a look at kitchen linens.
I made this artwork with a $6 dishtowel from West Elm and a thrifted poster frame.
You'll also need a big piece of white paper or poster board cut to fit your frame and doublesided tape to hold the tea towel in place. Iron it. Center it and tape it down. Then get your spouse to help you reassemble the frame because you are a klutz.
While World Market and Anthropologie sometimes have cool napkins and dishtowels that are frameworthy, my favorite is still West Elm. Consider the Brushstrokes Tea Towel below, now on sale for $6.
Or I'm also really liking the Stamped Oval Tea Towel, which is currently $9. You could do a whole room around this.
So, you may say that's nice, Bromeliad. But why don't you hang your cheapo art on the wall?
Because it's being used to cover this low-rent mess.Does anyone know why cables are always black when nobody has black walls or outlets?
Those fish hide a world of ugliness.
