This is fabric #1. I really like the fabric and think it is perfect for the room. The background color of the fabric is pretty much the same color of the walls. It also look good with the other things I have going on in the room and the living room which is next door. The only thing is - are they too predictable? I feel like they aren't any different from anything you could just buy in a store.
This is fabric #2. It is a stark white background with a brown print. The background is too white, so if I did go with these, I would have to tea stain them or something to get the background a little darker. I really like this fabric because it is different and I love the print. But I don't know if the fabric makes a good curtain because you can't really tell anything when they are squenched together.
And here they are together. Sorry for the crummy pictures, but I was working with what I had. I guess I could have moved the chairs, but didn't. So which you would you choose???
Also above my china cabinet I am hanging 4 pewter plates. On either side of the china cabinet I have some very simple sconces to hang, they are Christmas gold right now. What color should I paint them? My light in the dining room is a oil rubbed bronzeish bell jar light, that is the only other metal.
And since I can't pay you in dollars for your opinion about the curtains and sconces, I will pay you in cuteness.
Eric dropped me and Claire off at the tailgate Saturday morning and look how cute she looked with her makeshift collar! We stayed for a little while and visited then I walked her home.
Plus Eric got to help let Spirit out of her cage before the game! He is the one on the left holding up the AU flag.
