I found a bolt of wild linen fabric for $5 at a yard sale Saturday. So exciting, especially since I had torn an ad for the very same print from a design magazine. I was so smitten with its flamboyant melon, I had even tried painting one for my old patio wall.
Alas, I did NOT like the print when it covered the cushions for my "new" chairs. Too busy with the Chippendale back. Y'all are always asking to see some of my mistakes! $5 is a pretty big purchase for me, too.
All is not lost! I laid the cut piece on my dining room table while I put away some knick knacks. Before I knew it, I had a low-cost centerpiece for my mom's birthday lunch table...
Check back tomorrow for "after" photos!
