Apartment Update

January 26, 2012

I received the two benches I bought from Target so I decided to stop by Hancock fabrics after work to pick out the fabric for the cushions. I also needed to pick out fabrics to make curtains for my bedroom window and sofa covers. I walked around the upholstery aisles at least 8 times trying to figure out what I wanted. For some reason I’m stuck on the color gold. I never liked the colors gold, brown, or yellow and I don’t know why I started to like them. I hesitantly chose the fabric below for my bedroom curtains. I only bought three yards of it to try it out. I originally wanted a plain solid gold but the fabric Hancock has was too shiny so I went for the textured dull gold. I can’t wait to start working on it! Choosing out the fabrics for the cushions and sofa covers will be dreadful though.
