Introducing the Flowerdy One. I realllllly had high hopes for this one. It had all the colors tied in from the surrounding decor, but the fabric was really thin. Not good for a lot of traffic that I forsee these stools getting. Also, the yellow was really bright (the pic makes it look more daffodil, rather than the post-it note yellow it really is).
Next up: The Red Splashy One. This fabric is sturdy aka good for lotsa butts coming and going on the seats. It's outdoor/indoor fabric so it will be easy to clean. The only downer I give it is that it doesn't have green in it.
I would like to mention here that I will be spray painting the legs a brushed nickel color, so they won't be so dark.
Now for the Chevron One. He also looks good against the chevron lamps, and I think he's just different enough to not be overkill with them. He also picks up the green of the dining room walls (and gray of the bar).
SNEAK ATTACK FABRIC APPEARANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have big plans for these Auburn babies.. stay tuned. If you're a Bama fan, fabric.com has stuff for you as well!! They had red and white chevron fabric AND a red and white print with elephants on it. There was also a red and navy chevron for all you Ole Miss fans out there.
Equal opportunity fabric distributor!
I got a couple of new red throw pillows! Since some of this new fabric will be turned into pillows if it's not on the stools, I thought I'd give you some views of how it would look.
Here's a view of the two existing pillows with the lamp. I like to call this my "surroundings" shot, because it gets the lamp, curtains, sidetable, couch, rug, and coffee table. My curtains need some umph, if you know what I mean. Speaking of curtains, everyone needs to go check out what my friend Kate has done over at Kate and Barrell. She made some awesome burlap drapes that look like Ballard Design's for about 90% less than it would've cost to buy them!
I can't wait to get more pillows up in here so I can layer them up!
Here are the existing pillows with their new baby siblings (aka fabric that hasn't grown into a pillow yet). That yellow pillow is similar to the rug that will be in dining room (it will be only yellow and white with a big pattern).
So bloggie readers, what do you think about the fabrics for the stools? I'm leaning toward the Red Splashy One.
Reveal photos will be up next week! (weather permitting the spray painting..)
