I Love Fabric - Creating New Color Schemes

    As you have all seen, this is how my living room has looked for a while. All done up in blue and gold. Since I have a new lighter sofa, I am looking for something really different. Very bright and full of fun summer colors. So I had to go to my favorite store and start the hunt.

    If you are like me and love to hunt for gorgeous decorator fabrics and rugs at discount prices, you really need to find a store like this. This is a fabric liquidator store. They only deal in bankrupt stock, discountinued or roll ends. Their rugs are gorgeous and you really can't beat the price anywhere.

    This is just one small section of their rug inventory. I didn't want to take pictures of the others because there were a lot of shoppers in that area and I didn't think that would be too cool. As you can see it says $99.00. Most of these are 6 x 9. The yellow labels on the rugs are on clearance for only $50.00. Can you believe such a bargain.

    Now we're going to start looking at all the fabric aisles. There are bolts like this on each side of the aisles, and there are 12 of these aisles. Look at the prices, beautiful decorator fabrics at $6.99 yd. Most stores you would have to pay 3 times that amount. Even JoAnn on sale is twice this price or better.

    Every color and type of fabric you can imagine. Look way down at the end of the aisle and you can see big wonderful tassel tiebacks. These are $5.99 to $8.99.

    More colors and types of fabric. I didn't take pictures of all the aisles, just the ones that didn't have a customer in them and just to give you a sample of all the wonderful fabrics.

    Now this is a section of the store that just has clearance bankrupt stock. $3.00 yd. for 54 inch wide decorator fabrics. This shows a ton of cottons, outdoor fabrics, linens and all types of weaves and patterns. You have to pull out tons of bolts to see what's in the back.

    Still in the clearance section. Chenilles, velvets, brocades and plush fabrics of all kinds, and these are $3.00 yd. too. You can also see more of their rug section. These are the 8 x 10 and 12 x 15 sizes. They cost $149.00 to $199.00.

    A view at the other side of the clearance section. Just look at all the wonderful fabrics.

    This is what I came up with. I fell in love with the Iris print fabric. So cheerful.

    Enough for pillows and a new table topper and the whole color scheme will be different.

    Mixing some of my new fabrics with some I already have, I can create another different color scheme.

    Still another one. I am really loving the apple green color.

    If I look around, I probably have a few more fabrics that will coordinate with my new ones to create still another color scheme. I LOVE playing with fabric. Ok, I'm sure you can guess the sewing machine is going to be going in high gear for a couple of days. I can't wait to have a whole new look.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits.
