I love the sepia toned photos in the living room, but with just plain white mattings they looked a little dull. I decided to add some interest with pretty vintage fabrics that coordinated with the room. Here's how I did it...
Step 1- I purchased several photo mattings, (on sale at Hobby Lobby) and then chose my fabrics.
Step 2- I cut the fabric to the same height and width as the matting. On the interior, I cut out the center leaving about an inch of fabric on all sides.
Step 3- Cut a diagonal line to each corner.
Step 4- On the right side of the matting, I placed a line of glue near the outside edge (basic glue stick) and positioned the fabric lining up the edges.
Step 5- Flip the matting over and fold and secure the inside edges.
Step 6- Center your picture and place in the frame. That's it! A pretty easy way to brighten up a picture wall.
