Waiting to move has been slightly torturous, and the end is not so near. To pass my time, and entertain my brain I have been doing a little shopping. I was really excited to find some fabric for my kitchen. Not sure if you can see it, but the background of this fabric(brown on brown stripe) matched my ottoman that was recovered last spring. LOVE IT! My biggest problem with houses that have open floor plans is "flow". How do you get all the rooms on the main level to look good when it is all used differently, but there is no beginning and end to the actual room(does that make sense?) Anyways, this fabric has most of the colors from my family room-minus orange, but that is ok. It has a totally different feel(more shabby than whatever you call the family room fabric-traditional?) I have no idea what I am going to do with it. Maybe make a roman shade, maybe cover the top of a bench, or placemats. Not sure, but it has me inspired.
