Fab Fabrics

Now that most of the major renovation projects for our home are completed, I can’t WAIT to start decorating!!!!!  I came across some beautiful and totally affordable fabrics the other day that I am dying to do something with:

I think they could be great to reupholster the bar stools at our kitchen counter or on the windows in the second bedroom.  The black and off-white in the tile patterned fabric would look dynamite on the barstools, and really complement the weathered iron knobs and pulls on the kitchen cabinets.  I love the paisley pattern because it is full of color and movement, and would really liven up the green bedspread and tan walls in the second bedroom.

I was really impressed by the fabric selection at this on-line fabric store, with most of the prices per square yard ranging from $9-$12, which is a huge discount compared to similar quality fabrics at other fabric stores such as Joann’s (I think the buyfabrics.com prices beat Joann’s even with a discount coupon!!).

So what do you think about the fabrics??  Which one would you choose?  Have other suggestions?

    I think the fabrics are unusual and terrific. I would select the black and white fabric because it is so graphic, and leaves accent colors to be picked up in pillows, pictures, and accessories. I have also found that sheets and even tablecloths can provide very affordable yardage. Another plus is there are frequently coordinating fabrics that can be used in new ways. I agree with you that wonderful fabrics exist outside the general source. Keep up the terrific site, you are becoming a daily habit for me!

      Mitzi, thanks for your suggestions for unique resources for fabrics – I couldn’t agree with you more. Keep up the great ideas!!

    Liz – Fully stocked fabric stores have all but disappeared, so this is a great resource! I like the fact that they are a family operation, too. It would definitely be worth the $2 charge for swatches so you can see actual colors in your own lighting before committing to yardage.
