A change is a coming…

Red is one of my favorite colors! But, sometimes I just need a change. The red has slowly left my living room, I gave my red sofa to my worlds best daughter. I switched out the red window panels (they really can’t be classified as drapes!).

I had been thinking about how to change this painting. It’s huge, in fact, I don’t have any wall space big enough for it…except above the fire place. I don’t want to store it, get rid of it or damage it in any way. After all, it was a great thirty find, and who knows when I’ll want it back! There was one big red item left in the room…

I used regular staples and covered a white canvas with burlap, created a hanger out of fishing line. I use fishing line a lot. It’s strong and almost invisible. I used a regular picture hanger at the top of the painting to hang the burlap canvas and the twig wreath. I can see a lot of possibilities in the future for the new neutral back drop! Can you believe I found another way to use burlap! The pictures below show my neutral love, for now anyway. I can always change it back, in less than a minute!

Change is a good thing (for me anyway)!

    Coolest idea ever! The frame is amazing! The black anchors the entire look so well. The addition of the wreath is so rustically perfect with that burlap texture. All the green is the perfect upcoming spring accent. You nailed it. LOVE!!

    great idea – if you want to uncover the painting underneath in the future, will that be possible?
    thanks for visiting my blog – yes, there are so many things one can do with silverware!

    That looks absolutely fabulous and I think it was a brilliant idea to simply cover up the painting to change up the look! Everything is gorgeous and I hope you will come over and share this at Inspiration Friday this week! :-)

    Hi Debbie…This turned out great! I found you At The Picket Fence. I have a lot of red too and am trying to get rid of it a little at a time. I am ready for a softer, cooler look. I love wreaths too. I’m following you now. Come visit me if you have time. ~Ann
