    Default Fabric??

    Okay we just got some kitchen chairs that need new fabric. I would like to get some in the next week or so! Were would be the cheapest (but still nice looking) to go? i have only ever bought fabric at fabric land!

    I have the 5 new ones plus 3 more chairs! im not really sure how much im going to be needing?

    Would it look tacky if i made curtians for the kitchen to match???


    Thanks

    len mills sells fabric, so does walmart.

    Measure your chair and figure out how much per chair x # of chairs.

    And I don't think it would be tacking to make matching curtains. But I'm weird like that. LOL

    Not at all. My SIL recently recovered her kitchen chairs in this really cute striped patterned fabric. Then, she got some of the same fabric and some co-ordinating polka-dot fabric and made curtains.....striped on the top like the chairs with a wide band of polka-dot on the bottom. She also did a few throw cushions for her couch since its an open concept home. It looked great, not tacky at all. Go for it.

    not sure about matching.. maybe pick a color FROM the chairs and do solid curtains instead..

    Hahaha Leigh. I do love it but I don't think Ryan would let me .

    I was thinking maybe something with a light yellow in it. Maybe has some kind of flower??? But then again. I will probably just go and lookk @ fabric and see what I like. The kitchen is like a off white. Were not going to paint the kitchen. Just add colour, so I would like something that has colour. To make the kitchen pop kwim????
