I look forwards to Thursday's Washington Post - for the Living section. This week I was not disappointed. They had a wonderful article on the couple behind the Velvet and Linen blog. It's total eye candy. They have a book out, hence the article -- which is something I'll look for next time I'm at Barnes & Noble.
But what really caught my eye was their talk of using burlap and Home Depot dropcloths for upholstry. Including this burlap headboard:
I've spent more time today than I care to admit searching the net for burlap items - bed frames, pillows, tablecloths, etc. And there will definitely be some burlap in my future. I'm thinking of using burlap to make an 18" x 18" pin board for my craft area wall, among other projects.
