Little Surprises - Dreamy Chairs

I'm keeping this post short & sweet today.  School starts so I am needed elsewhere...

I love pretty little surprises.  Especially when they come in the form of fabric.  This would be a great way to stretch the fabric budget too by using the pricier fabric in a smaller area.




A Dose of Pretty

What about you - do you like pretty surprises too?

  8. I think just the touch of expensive fabrics makes these chairs so much more interesting than if they had been fully upholstered in that fabric.

  27. Great ideas for using leftover fabric. Isn't it amazing what a big difference a little color, print and pattern can make? I could spend hours browsing through fabric samples! :)
