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)!

Thanks Heather!! I appreciate it!
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
Thanks Ann! I am headed over!
It’s gorgeous! Perfectly ‘framed’! Thanks for the inspiration.
I’ll be over to check out your blog! Thanks for stopping by!
That’s gorgeous! Perfectly ‘framed’! Thanks for the inspiration.
I love it! I just bought burlap yesterday to do a similar project!
I’m here from Debbiedoo’s party.
Have a great day!
Thanks Pam! I can’t wait to see your project!
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! 🙂
Thanks Vanessa! I’ll be over on Friday to share!
I love your photos…I could swear I posted a comment on this..glad I came back, besides I got another lovely look. Have a great day and thanks for joining the newbie party.
Glad you came back! Thanks!
WOW, let me say I am in love with your pictures! I went back twice to look at them:) Thanks for sharing with my newbie party group. Enjoy, and hope to see you again.
Thanks Debbie, I have been working on making them better…and someone noticed! I really appreciate it!
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!
Yes it’s very easy to remove, the burlap canvas is hanging in front of the actual painting. Thanks for visiting!
Sooooo pretty! Fab change! 🙂
This is just beautiful…and something I could do! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thanks Pam! Yes, it’s a very simple solution for a cover up!
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!!
Thanks Donna! I thought about a solution for a while, on this one! Glad you like!
I really loved the change when I saw it in person!!!
🙂 You’re too sweet! but I like it! Thanks!
Love the change …
🙂 Thanks Beth!
