I found some gorgeous fabric off E-Bay and decided to do those two old chairs in it. I haven`t quite figured out how to match this fabric up with anything yet. I`ll have to do some experimenting.
"Eh? You mean I actually have to move?"
It`s called Country House Toile by Waverly in Indigo. Not normally a blue person, this is a prettier blue than any indigo I`m familiar with. It` almost a jade blue, yet not quite. The fabric was going to be for pillows or something originally but I loved it so much I had to use it in a big way.This picture shows the true colour the best..
Only one done and while putting the cording on to cover the staples, I broke the darn glue gun. So there`s no trim around the top part yet. One more to go, but I have to wait for the extra fabric to arrive anyway. I had enough left over from two yards to cover a couple of throw pillows for the front room. They go nice with the olivey green couch and muted reds. Told ya I was revamping things :) Eventually I might even have it all finished and show some pics.
"Well, I suppose it IS pretty...." thinks Elvis. It looks more like he`s pulling a face at it though LOL
"But can you believe this? Now what`s she going to do with these chairs? She never mentioned anything about blue. What`s going to go with this?"
Hubby has been creating a web page in his free time. It`s called www.RateBistros.com Once it gets going, a fun and useful place for anyone looking for a good place to eat or has something to say about one. It`s still all very new and he needs to get the data base going more. So if you wouldn`t mind going on over and adding your favorite eating spot, whether a bistro or restaurant, he`d be pleased. The address is http://www.ratebistros.com/
At the moment it`s only for Canada and the States, but maybe in the future he will be adding more countries.
I`m having a fairly productive week off and it`s already Wednesday, sigh.
Hope everyone is having a nice week :)
