yea!

my mom just called...the chair is mine for FREE!! she asked her friend yesterday and she said i could have it. tomorrow i'm calling the upholstery man to schedule it for recovering and find out how much yardage i will need to get it re-done. i LOVE taking something old and making it all new again!

Yea...that is good news... I cannot wait to see the finished product...you have to let me know what fabric you decided on. Those chocolate cookies are looking to good right now!

rpm, tomorrow i'll post pictures of the remaining fabrics. my final choice to some extent depends on yardage as i know labor is $$ so i'd like to save as much as possible on the fabric. for instance, that lavender you sort of liked - $9.95/yd...the green floral i like $24.95/yd...the black with circles you and your sister like $25.95/yd. y'all have expensive taste :-) you picked the 'best' one. how funny is that?

Ouch...that is expensive. I agree with you, I'd have to see how much yardage it takes. Do you ever buy the Architectual Digest magazines? I used to subscribe to it to get all kinds of ideas. I bought one the other day and it gets me all excited to see the beautiful fabrics and furniture in them.

rpm, the only magazine i get is southern living. BUT one of the owner's here gets AD and i look at his. i love the ads for the fabrics and furniture.
