They wanted to repaint the walls (from a creamy beige to a cool crisp white), focus on deep greys instead of browns and bring in mustard yellow as the new primary accent colour.
Our hutch was great, but there was all this wasted space between the top of the hutch and the ceiling. I just wanted to … I don’t know, stretch it up!
The best part, for me, is that these fabric panels will have a much longer lifespan than a paper poster that would eventually get ripped and recycled. Fabric panels don’t get torn and ragged, and when you no longer want them on the wall, you can turn them into pillows, clothes, quilts, tote bags — anything!
I’m Heather Laura Clarke. I’m journalist and blogger in beautiful Nova Scotia, I have an 9-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter, I married my high school sweetheart, and this is the story of my handmade life.
I have depression and anxiety, and I fight like hell every day to keep it from taking over my life. Making things isn’t just a hobby — it’s part of what keeps me alive.
Whether I’m decorating a room, busting out my power tools to build furniture, getting muddy in the pottery studio, sewing clothes for my kids, or cross-stitching a swear word, I’m all about using my creativity to craft a life I love.
