Fabric Finds

After some careful consideration and a lot of blog surfing for inspiration, I've decided upon a color scheme for my newfound treasure and sunroom makeover.  BLUE.  A color I've shied away from since we bought our home four years ago...why, you ask?  Well, here's a glimpse back at what our house looked like when we first purchased it:

And the master bedroom:

And the living room:

....And one of the spare bedrooms:

 Ah, yes that blueberry blue was everywhere, and enough blue to last me, well, four years.  I'm finally coming around and am ready to give it another chance.  I decided that for this particular project, upholstery fabric was a must, so I took full advantage of JoAnn fabrics' sale currently going on.  I've always loved toile, but have never had the opportunity to use it anywhere.  Well, I finally found the perfect place for it.  Here's a snapshot of the gorgeous fabric that will soon embrace the "new" old settee:

And here's a snapshot of the materials I'm using for the project as well as a few other fabrics I'll use for pillows and other accents in the sunroom makeover:

  1. Kate, LOVE the fabric choices especially the one to go on the sofa! Perfect for the time period of the piece I think. Where did you get them?

  2. Thanks Sarah!

    I got them all at JoAnn Fabrics. They are having a fantastic sale. The Toile was 50% off and all other home decor fabrics are 30% off.
