It's been over a year since I first saw the mudroom episode and I'm still crazy about this fabric. I even ordered myself a small sample piece so I could see it close up and personal, but try as I may, I couldn't think of a place to use
it in my own home.
Then one day while shopping at Old Time Pottery, I came across a 5-yard remnant piece of the fabric at only $4/yd. I snatched it up right away, justifying the purchase by telling myself I could make pillows to sell at the store ~ which I did.
The pillows sold almost immediately so there must be a lot of other Sarah Richardson followers out there too. I had a wee bit of the fabric left and decided to make myself some lumbar pillows for my newly repainted dining room chairs. This is how the fabric looks in my house.
It's a very bright and bold fabric that I'm not sure I could
use myself as drapery. In my small house, it might just blow me out of the room.
So far, I've only used it in these pillows, but I sure would like to find another way to incorporate the fabric into other parts of my living and dining room. I love it's warm earthy colors and I never tire of looking at it.
I've been toying with the idea of making a slip cover for a living room chair, but for now, it's just an idea for the future when I have more time. It might be too much in large doses. What do you think?
