I'm trying to pick out the perfect fabric for my next project! I found this adorable reclining rocker that I'm dying to buy (for only $20!) to reupholster. The only problem is that I promised Craig that I would tackle one of the many chairs at the house that could be used for practice and sold for extra money to put towards our new sofa. All I want to do is buy every piece of awesome furniture that I find at thrift stores to keep for when I'm ready to start a new project, but Craig keeps me in line. I love his practical side, just please don't tell him ;)
Picking out fabric quickly is not a strong attribute that I possess. Don't get me wrong, I fall in love with tons of fabric, and can pick them out for friends in a heart beat...but when given too many options my brain gets all scrambled. BUT THEY WOULD ALL LOOK AMAZING!! I use fabric.com for pretty much all of my online purchases, and I also have a really great discount store near the house who does one BIG sale once a year where all of the fabric (including upholstery and drapery) is just $1.99/yard. Shut up. I know. Also, back home in Charlotte we have an AMAZING shop called Mary Jo's which is a huge warehouse filled with fabrics, buttons, trim, zippers and thread. Its pretty special because its been in the same place for years and years and my grandmother used to shop there when she was younger. It's a little pricey, but you can find some amazing options for any project there.
So here are some possibilities that I've picked out. I am in LOVE with a few of them - one in particular which is pretty pricey. Because this is a chair that will be sold and not kept in my house, I thought it might be nice to get some outside opinions! Won't you help me pick out one?
