Can you hear that thumping noise? It's little old me, banging my head against my kitchen wall. Yes, the red one that needs repainting.
Why? Because I was totally ready to jump into my WHITE settee slipcover project this weekend. And then I happened to cull through my old magazines last night, ripping and saving, so I could send some to school with Big Sis for a class project.
And I came across THIS in an old Domino issue:
Yes. The pink looks super cool. (And she knows it, too. She is sitting there, on her pretty little pink couch, thinking I'm totally going to make chris change her mind about the white.)
So the question is, do I (gulp) dye my white twill (as laeroport suggested) and go for it? Run out and buy some new pink fabric and start from there? Or, tuck this inspiration photo away for a few years from now, when we move and I can start from scratch in a new house where my sweet little settee doesn't have to be so prim and proper, across the hall from a very buttoned-up brown and cream dining room?
I don't have all that wood trim on mine and I do think that sets it off in this picture. I suppose that could be fixed with some thick white piping, which is also a little more work than I had anticipated...
I've never even tried dyeing 5 yards of heavyweight twill before. That alone could be a disaster. But seriously, the pink? I love it.
Happy Friday. I'm going to ponder this. What would YOU do?
