Project 19: Buying fabric

May 10, 2011

A friend and I went fabric shopping this morning. I brought along my paint colors but had no way to bring a sample of my toile comforter with me. My hope was that I would find a drapery fabric that had both of my paint colors plus an accent color that I could use in the room.

I kind of failed. I bought fabric, and it looks nice with my paint colors, but it doesn’t have an accent color and it doesn’t look good at all with my comforter. I’m going to forge ahead with it for this project and live with it for a while to see if it grows on me. If not, the window in the guest room is the same size!

Tomorrow: making roman shades.


  1. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah, Amber! I’m so sorry that it isn’t what you wanted with the comforter. I feel badly that I contributed to a sad purchase. Maybe it will grow on you—-I hope so, but in the meantime, aaaaaah. đŸ˜¦

    • I blame the selection. I do feel that the fabric we picked out the was the best option available to us, and I really appreciate your help finding it!
