Fabric Possibilities For My Chairs…

I realize that all my posts have been ‘help me decide’ lately – but I have been making so many decisions and processing so many projects that looking at inspiration photos seems, well, uninspiring. I am looking for some fabric to make cushions for my Chinoiserie chairs and below is a collection of really lovely and fun fabric choices that are all available for under 20 dollars per yard (some are 50% off at joannfabrics.com right now).

I thought you guys out there in the blogosphere might enjoy them – also to be fair some of these fabrics are not upholstery material – but I thought I would include them anyways as I am considering making some throw pillows as well…. And if you have any recommendations for me in the process – you know I love them!

  1. LOVE looking at fabric swatches! My favorites are: the Essence in Spa, Chippendale Fretwork, Floored Sandstone, Madison Lipstick Linen and Harmonies Essence in Sunset (I really love this one). Have fun!!!

  2. What? How can you decide from all those?! I like the chippendale fretwork with red painted chair. But I need to look back at your blog to see what your house looks like as I just found this blog off a tip from a friend. Love it!

  3. You're not making it much easier! I think it would look really fun to do a bright pink or salmon with the pink fabrics or bright yellow fabrics or black…haha!

  4. How fun to choose fabrics for vintage chair cushions! I like: Python Tendril Green Daffney, Chippendale fretwork, Summer Soiree Animal Party, Criss Cross in Cardinal, Curly-Q Spring, Cheetah Print Earth, Rosalinda.

  5. Well, I'm no help because I'm loving about half of them!
    I had no idea about JoAnn's fabrics on line! (I'm having trouble finding things locally, so thank you for the info!)

    p.s. Looking forward to seeing you!

  6. All of them are so beautiful
    thank you so much, I'm making some pillows too for my home now… and looking for fabrics everywhere

  7. aria ml coral w/orangey red paint on the chairs. that's my vote. new to your blog so i have not gotten all the way through it. love everything i've seen though! i'll be back.


  8. So glad you narrowed them down.


    For the love of a house sent me here. LOVE what you are doing!

  9. Do you have a photo of the chairs now painted? And also a picture of the room they'll be in. Then I would love to pick a fabric.

  10. You know what is horrible? I haven't painted them yet – I just haven't been able to decide on a color – I know it makes me sound ridiculous!
