Design-it-yourself buffs found out the answers to these and other DIY questions at workshops held by Bemz and Lillebricole at the Créations & Savoire Faire show in Paris that we posted about last week.
Our workshops were held in The Loft, one of the central and most popular features of the fair, where interior decorator Fabienne Spahn spun her magic making dreams come true with a mix of affordable textile products for the home.
One popular workshop was on colour matching, at which participants learnt how to colour match Bemz fabrics with paint.
Another was on headboards as a key finishing touch to any bedroom. As DIY-ers at the Loft found out, making your own headboard has never been so easy. All you need is a large piece of wood and felt, and 2.5 metres of fabric and a few staples...
Special thanks to Fabienne, Marie Davideau, Lillebricole's CEO, and all the team at The Loft for treating the DIY-ers to a whole lot of creativity and fun.
