Update and More Visual Aids!

My living room fabric that I got from E-bay




The backside of fabric tacked up on the window


Larger view of dining room



Front side of fabric, color is stronger than it appears




The Toile, very strong on the reddish browns

I am reminded by one of my blogging buddies that I didn't give you enough visual aids to make a good decision without a picture of all the fabrics involved. Thanks, Penny Suzie for helping me do better.Thanks!

Dear Miss Sandy,

I sincerely hope I did not offend you with my request to make it more clear about the fabrics involved with your decision.

I truly love the fabric with the roses and ribbons. Would you be happy with making some type of window topping with maybe some tea stained muslin under the toppers? Or maybe some soft pastel organza, or something sheer? Also, you could tea stain the original floral fabric to give it the antique/vintage look.

Anyhow, of all the fabrics you shared with us, I love the flowers.

Hugs,
Penny Suzie

Hi Sandy, I love the pink and blue and I think it will be perfect for the room. It will also coordinate with the rest of the house. I would put some lace or sheers under it to soften the hard edges of the window. Whatever you choose, you are the one that must love it!

You have good taste......you gave me some ideas for my kitchen as it looks identical almost in the eating area.
