My Newly Revamped Screen

I recently acquired a lovely antique screen and knew straight away it would make the perfect accessory for displaying some of my fabrics, as well as being a great addition to my new home. I’m due to move in a few months time, so I set to work giving it an Annabel Perrin makeover. I’m pleased to share the before and after shots with you now.

The screen had been re-upholstered but it was a little rough around the edges, as you can see! I spent hours stripping down layers of fabric and removing countless staples and tacks – most of which were rusty and rather stubborn! But I was eventually left with a good sturdy frame to work with. After adding a layer of calico to support my fabric, I began to re-cover the frame in some of my own designs.

I chose four fabrics that I think look brilliant and bold together – Spectrum, Imperial Diamond Mono, Flowerpress and Glasshouse and a bright orange trim to frame the patterns (and hide the tacks of course!).

What do you think? I’m delighted with it and cant wait to show it off at future shows and also in my new house!
