What Would I Do . . .

if someone gave me this simple gray gimp?

It's only $2.55 a yard, so it's extremely affordable and you could use it in so many ways.  

Here are some ideas.
It really can turn an ordinary item, into something special.

Add it to the bottom of a club chair

Dress up some window treatments

Or add some much needed contrast to a bed coverlet.

Have a productive day!  M.


  1. Love gimp and tapes......went to Samuel and Son, the big daddy of all trims, and literally couldnt' and wouldn't leave. Was there for hours......dreaming, wishing, admiring, I LOVE gimp. You gave some superb examples as to the best way to use it!
    Stop by..last day to be eligible for my giveway, the gorgeous Kilim bench!

  2. I am loving the trim on the club chair. I also saw it used on a skirted side table one day and it was gorgeous. I just found your blog, so happy I did, it is fabulous!

  3. I especially love the tape on the chair skirt! I have gimp like the one you show on pillows in my living room.

  4. Each example was better than the last...as I went down your post I thought, "I should do that", "Oh, I should totally do that", "That's awesome", "I MUST do that!"


Thank you for thoughts on my post! M.
