Using the same decoupage concept, these fabric-lined drawers at Infarrantly Creative are so pretty…
…and these updated kitchen chairs at Crafty Nest are so chic!
So what’s your verdict? Would you use or have you ever used fabric to update an old piece of furniture?

Oh you beauty 🙂 Ihave a very ugly what you would call a hutch and I would call a dresser, that has glass doors and how I was going to curtain them had me completely boggled. How did I never think of thumb tacks (or drawing pins as I say). So simple, so obvious and really unbelievable that I missed it whist thinking of how to do it!! Now, I only need to find my paint colour and it’s off the todo list and time to get started!!
I was just telling my husband I want to do this to a terribly outdated cabinet. He said he was unsure and would have to see examples. Bingo! Thanks 🙂

Beth @ dot...in the city says

Go on head with your bad self, I love this! I never actually thought of dressing furniture up with fabric before even though it makes total sense. The room is so cute and this is just another great added touch. So glad to have stumbled on it, thanks for inspiring me to do something a little different. I would love if you could share this at my cheap finds and transformations party. I just love it when a good project comes together for very little cost. Here’s the link just in case your’re interested, thanks and have an awesome weekend! http://www.thescottscrib.com/2012/01/lathrifta-strikes-gold-lathriftas-cheap.html
