Ideas to decor your home with fabric


Hang a shabby chic closet curtain door room divider




You didn’t see that coming.

And so didn’t I!

We see regular curtains every day. But a good way to use them is as a room divider.

You don’t need to buy an expensive door. Just use a few strips of  vintage fabrics covered with gorgeous florals and tie them to the side of the room dividier or  walked thru easily.

These chic curtain vintage and antique linens are quite versatile.

So you can display them in any opening for a perfect gypsy, boho or shabby chic look.


DIY IKEA pillows




That was a no-brainer, right?

I agree that decorating with fabric doesn’t get any better than that.

But instead of buying ready-made pillows, you can DIY them at home.

Here’s how you can make a pillow from an IKEA KLEJS Rug.
