Three panels of flocked fabric wallpaper make a big visual statement in this family room. Here's how to make your own inexpensive fabric art:
1. Build wooden frames from thin pieces of wood cut to size at your local home improvement store.
2. Lay out your fabric on a smooth surface and place the frame on top.
3. Fold one side of the fabric over the frame staple the fabric to the frame. Pull tightly to get a crisp edge, and repeat on all three sides.
4. Cut off excess fabric and hang in your room.
Some basic color theory, a color wheel and the 60-30-10 rule will have you combining bathroom colors like an interior design pro.
