BUT, as all crafty diy'ers do, I got bored of it. So, I thought I would experiment with the supplies I had on hand and change it up a bit. The picture below is the result.
BUT, something wasn't right. I didn't LOVE it, you know? It seemed dark and dull, and well, not done! SO, I tried tried again, and the below picture is the result. Love? Love.
I ended up using my cream burlap instead of the beige burlap to brighten things up a bit. I also painted the fringed edges turquoise to add a subtle pop of color. I like it. I think. Ha ha, ok, I like it (for now). Someday I will get bored again I'm sure, but for now these are a-ok :) (AAarrrg. I have had a super stiff neck going on 3 days now. It is seriously uncomfortable and inhibiting my craftiness. Beat it stiff neck, Geez!!!)
