Fabulous Fabrics

Trellis White / Green Fabric Yard

My latest project 'The Playgroup Room' is nearly finished . . apart from a floor rug & wallpaper (not in the budget just yet!).

Last weekend I won this little black rattan chair on eBay. What a steal! I have decided to lacquer it in the Honeysuckle colour I posted about a few weeks ago.

And cover the seat cushion in this green trellis fabric.

I'm hoping it will look bright & quirky with the mix of Floral, Spot, Stripe, Ikat & now Geometric fabric.

The only thing I really need now is industrial strength scotchguard!

More pictures to follow in a few days.

  4. ooh I love those ikat prints! can't wait to see the "after" pictures of your chair. I'm working on a few of my own at the moment - very satisfying but they always take so much longer than you first think!
