Fabric Ideas

For the chairs, I originally, planned on a grey, faux suede material in a leopard print. I never got the sample swatch so I needed to look at other ideas.

Right now, I have 2 ideas – a vinyl fabric with a bird pattern (though I’m not really keen on vinyl here in Texas) or the heavy canvas with the abstract flower pattern.

For my bamboo Roman shades, I am planning to cover them with a plain fabric and then edge it with one of these –

I’m not quite sure which one would work the best. I am supposedly getting a sample of the darker fabric.

 

 

Lessons Learned on Dining Chairs

I got these cool chairs a few years ago –


They had a really cool pattern and were somewhat comfy.

Fast forward to today, they’re not as comfy – you can feel the springs on the bottom. I shouldn’t have bought them online without sitting on them first.

Add to that, the kitties have torn up the fabric. The thought of reupholstering did come to mind but I’m not quite sure about the spring in the bottom cushion thing – it’s weird.

Since these chairs won’t last, I am going to slowly change them out and go the mismatched chair route. It will be less stressful than having to replace all 6 chairs at once AND I get to find cool chairs to mix and match.

I just wish I had thought of that earlier on in the game. The only thing I need to do is make sure the chairs are in proportion to the table.
