So while I was out scooping up the $6.00 artwork on Saturday, I made a quick trip into Hancock's. It must have been my lucky day because while I was in there, one of the workers was bringing out boxes and boxes of remnants (I love remnants)! He said they had just received a huge shipment and wanted to get rid of them all for, you guessed it, $4.00 a yard. My eyes were immediately drawn to this lovely print.
It's called Latika by Echo. It is 100% linen and retails for $79/yard. I bought 7 yards for $28. I did a search on-line when I got home and found it for anywhere between $79/yard and $29/yard (but not $4/yard). I love the pattern and the colors. I know just where it's going to go.
These are the current curtains in my family room. Another $4/yard find.
I still like them, but lately I've been longing for something a little lighter in this room.
I will keep these curtains and maybe use them in the Fall/Winter and use
the Latika ones in the Spring/Summer.
I am going to have the Lakita curtains done with a pinch pleat for a more tailored look.
Can't wait to hang them up.
I also found this on etsy. Makes a pretty pillow, doesn't it? Since I have 7 yards, I think I'll save a little for a pillow. Don't want to overdo it, but I think one small pillow will look great.
So that's why I don' buy expensive fabric. I change my mind way too often. Anyone else fickle over fabric (and rugs, and lamps and mirrors)?
There is still time to enter the Olive Leaf Stencil giveaway. It is open until Friday at 11:59 a.m.
