And she wasn’t kidding either. She had come upon the mother load! Apparently this very nice lady’s son owns a furniture manufacturing company and she gets all of the COM (customer’s own material) leftover fabric. There were some gorgeous patterns! And you may remember I need some fabric for these chairs:
I wanted a solid fabric for the rattan chair and found a great nubby gold fabric with just enough yardage! Check it out…
I really like the tone of the fabric with rattan, so SCORE!! Oh and I haven’t told you the best part of the story… That sweet lady with all the fabric was selling them for $2.00 a BOLT!!!!!!! I know, it’s inconceivable! It didn’t matter if there was 1 yard or 15 yards - $2.00 a bolt! The re-decorating gods were smiling down on us.
Now for the other retro – chair I am really feeling a houndstooth pattern, I found this fabric last weekend at this great little shop over in Southend, Modern Fabrics. It’s definitely not $2.00 a bolt but I feel like since I lucked out on the other I can afford a little more and get exactly what I want.
You may have caught a glimpse of another fabric behind that pretty gold… Let me give you a better look at that:
I’m loving the combo! The orange pillow is from the sofa and I already have some turquoise pillows I can bring in to pop up the color. My newly painted turquoise lamp is perfect for the space as well! I feel a plan coming together!! Don’t worry I’ll show ya the finished product as soon as it is… FINISIHED!
Have you found any great deals recently? Where do you find your fabric?
