I snagged this idea off of pinterest and absolutely love how it turned out! Such an easy way to go from this:
Just by doing this!
Add a splash of color, or a cutesie pattern that helps tie in mismatched towels and decor, without having to paint or wall paper (i.e. commit to loving something long term.) Simply cut a piece of cardboard the size of the space you wish to fill and cover it in fabric. I kept it simple by folding the fabric edges around the back of the cardboard and securing it with tape. The best part is that I already had the cardboard (hello huge diaper box) and the fabric was a piece my grandma donated to my scrap bin!
Oh, and by the way... I painted this vase once upon a time at a pottery studio.
It has our last name and the year we were married.
