Hosting a fancy dinner helps creatively pass the time while treating yourself to your favorite food. If you have kids, they’ll get a kick out of it. Make sure everyone dresses in their finest!
Make Your Linens
Sometimes our beds need a face lift. Believe it or not, upgrading your bedding by hand is easier than you think. You can create a new duvet or top sheet out of drop cloth. It’s a rustic, natural fabric perfect for the summer months. The look of the material is suitable for most home styles: modern, country rustic, and traditional.
Use canvas to make pillow covers and more. If you’re not into natural fabric colors, you can use a stamp to paint the fabric with different patterns or shapes. For duvets, simple buttons may be all the embellishments you want. The choice is yours!
Update Your Window Treatments
Like beds, our window treatments need updates too. Use a canvas drop cloth to make lovely drapes. Canvas is thick enough to give you privacy, but when closed, it diffuses light in the room for the ultimate ambiance. Again, the canvas is very neutral, but you can find it in other colors. Whatever your desired look, there’s a canvas fabric for you. Get creative with it! Drapes are the perfect opportunity to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral room.
