I thought our repurposed wall-art needed a little dose of color, but I was afraid to detract from its rustic charm by adding any paint. So, inspired by a weaving project from work, I broke out my stash of embroidery floss. I’m not much of an embroiderer, but the stash had belonged to my step-dad’s mother so there’s a sentimental factor, plus I love the vibrant colors. I thought this would be the perfect project to showcase the great colors without permanently committing to anything. I just wrapped the floss around the lattice in various spots, securing it in the back with a knot. I’m pleased as punch with the subtle pop of color the technique provided to my living room. The little birdie perched in the middle likes it too šŸ™‚
