We combined the toile, with black & white dots, a solid red and a solid white to make this Rail Fence quilt for her crib. Daughter uses a solid red crib sheet to pull out the red in the quilt.
Then we purchased these letters to spell out the baby's name and painted them to match. Her Daddy nailed the moulding "frame" to the wall above her crib and daughter put the baby's name inside. We used a pencil eraser dipped in white paint to add the dots and hot glued ribbon between the colors for a smoother transition. I've since found toile scrapbook paper and have thought about replacing the black & white dots with it, but I have so many other projects to do, it may not happen.We found a nice curvy dresser on Craig'slist and painted it red. It is just the right height to use as a changing table.
And here is another toile project I've done recently.
Remember the book ends I was doing for my co-workers office?
Here is the before:
And the after:It's amazing what a little black spray paint, some scrapbook paper and Mod Podge can do!
Wasn't this fun?!?! Now I'm off to find more things to do with toile. Don't forget to jump on over to Pretty Organized Palace and check out what all of the other crafty ladies have done.
