I still haven't decided on a fabric for the dining room chairs.
Here's what they looked like when I first got them.
I finished painting them this weekend - LOVE! They're now a beautiful satin black and look like a million bucks. Well, they at least look like $200 bucks - which is $150 more than I paid.
The fabric looks more red in the picture, but it's actually a bright burnt orange. And although I could make excuses that it works for Halloween, or that we're big UT fans, I want to change them ASAP.
I finally found a fabric that I really like. A Waverly Sun N Shade fabric called Suva in Black.
However, there is a problem. I haven't seen it in person. And while I was scouring the internet trying to find the best deal - I found that the color varies a lot from site to site.
Here it is on FabricGuru.com ($7.08/yard if bought as a remnant piece):
That is the colorway I want. The tan, brown and black would work really well in the space. But here is the same fabric at Fabric.com ($10.98/yard):
We're back to a more tan color at Hancock's of Paducah ($9.58/yard):
However, at OnlineFabricStore.net, it is more green again. ($9.25/yard)
I bought a sample from OnlineFabricStore.net ($1 a sample - no shipping). So I'm waiting for it to arrive. The sample is also good because this is an outdoor fabric - but I don't want it to feel too stiff or scratchy.
