A few years ago, I found a beautiful floral embroidered silk fabric at my local fabric store. It was exactly perfect to stretch over a canvas for the wall above the sofa in my condo. I also made the extra into a cushion for said couch.
When we moved into this house, the canvas went (temporarily.. I thought) on the shelf under the glass on our coffee table... almost a year and a half later, I still love the pretty look it gives our re-furbished coffee table!
