Weekend Update - Fabrics and other Buys

I am having another great weekend finding wonderful pieces of furniture begging to be refurbished and a great fabric sale at Fabric World in Stone Mountain (I keep sharing all my secrets - this one is a good one  for the Atlanta area locals).   Most of their fabrics are $3.00 a yard for an unspecified timeframe (at least they wouldn't tell me).  I stopped by Friday expecting not to be too impressed but ended up buying 150 yards!  Here's the scene and some of my buys:

Some of my Purchases

I also bought the following furniture at various estate and garage sales (and have a bid in on two bergere chairs - probably won't get those since I bid fairly low):

  • Two cane-sided wingback type chairs (3rd set like this I've redone - turn out beautifully - see similar long-sold one below)
  • Straight Chippendale leg wingback chair (another Vicki Chair)
  • Tight-back settee with rolled arms, single large cushion and carved front legs
I am still thinking about 10 or more fabrics that I really SHOULD have bought and may drag a friend who also loves fabrics with me on Monday to check them out!  


  1. I went back to fabric store on Monday - same great sale - bought another 100 plus yards - this has got to stop!!

  2. Oh. I love fabric. I would love to go fabric shopping with you.(smile).
