I know the suspense was killing you, so I'm back with the second part of my fabric story.
When I last left you, I had decided that I would recover my basement chair cushions with this fabric…
"Funochio Parade" is its name. Wild and crazy is its game.
I'll admit this funky design is a little out of my comfort zone. I liked the sample swatch, but I wanted to see what this fabric looked like in a larger dose. So, I began googling it. Surely, someone somewhere had recovered a piece of furniture in it. Right?
Or, if they had, they weren't sharing it with the world wide web.
I was just going to have to trust that the chair would be fabulous.
|It's got to be better than this, right?|
Fast forward 24 hours. In preparation for another project, I am on line researching planked walls. My search eventually leads me to Sandra's blog, where I see this...
What the what!?? Is that Funochio Parade I spy on that adorable bench? It sure looks like it.
(This is the Twilight Zone moment I alluded to in my last post. Do-do-do-do.)
I immediately e-mail Sandra to find out. She graciously responds that she doesn't recall the name, but she purchased the fabric at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago.
I know it's a long shot, but I hop in my car and head over to the Lobby of Hobby, hoping I might be able to find the fabric.
And guess what? I did!!! A big fat bolt of Funochio was waiting right there for me.
And the best part? It was $24.99/yd + 40% off! Much better than the fabric store's price of $44.99/yd.
That meant a savings of $120!! Now, that's what I call a Happy Ending.
You were probably hoping Part Two of this story would mean an actual reveal of the chair with her new cushions, but you're going to have to wait a little longer for that. Not because I'm trying to turn this story into a novel, but because the cushions aren't done yet :)
However, I am making progress on the basement makeover. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I did some painting this weekend...
Be back soon to show you the latest…
