Since our summer weather has been less than ideal here in Vancouver, I needed to "self-medicate" with something new to look at in the living room (we've been spending WAYYY too many days indoors lately...UGH!).
So....on yet another rainy morning, I packed up the boys and headed for a super-fun trip to Fabricana :)
I know...I know.....not your typical summer's day activity.
Don't worry....there happens to be a ride-on horse in the store that goes forEVER on a quarter. It's old-school, and fairly dodgy, but the boys love it.
Anyways....they happen to have very reasonably priced fabric, with a good selection of Dwell Studio (by Robert Allen) patterns :) I had a hard time choosing one or two, but ended up with the "Gate" pattern in Charcoal and the "Vintage Blossom" in Jade. LOVE THEM!
I whipped up 3 very simple pillow covers, added some trusty IKEA down inserts, and plopped them onto my sofa. Isn't it great how a couple of new cushions can just make your day that much better :)
ok..maybe that's just me.
I paired them with an adorable birdcage pillow that I bought from Raggy Girl Vintage at the Ivory Vintage Market.
I have 4 ratty old dining room chairs that are half-painted in my garage, waiting to be rescued and spruced up. My goal is to have them finished in the next 2 weeks.
We'll see how that goes. Judging by my current track record...it's not looking too promising ;)
