Home Decorating

Well you know that just because we concentrate on sewing garments, we also have to do a little home decorating. I have posted before about window treatments, but I have never shared my cornices or head boards. Last summer while I was in California, I came across this fabric store Called Home Fabrics & Rugs. Feeling home sick for sewing, I must have stayed in there for a hr. or so just browsing. I came across this faux leather metallic fabric for 12.99 per yard. I thought I would get a yard for some pillows. The guy at the counter (as he was cutting my yard) asked me what I was making. I told him and he replied, well people normally use this for hand bags, head boards, cornices, DING, DING. I got 2.5 yards more to cover my head board. The fabric for the curtains I had in my stash must have paid 1.00 per yard for it about 5 years ago, lucky for me it matched the metallic fabric. I had enough left over from the curtain fabric to make the pillow on the bed.

PS. I did have to ship the fabric home, along with the other fabric I purchased on my LA fabric shopping excursion.

I love that you used this fabric on your bed headboard. It really brings everything together.
