Color My World Challenge... Fabric

It is fabric week of the Color My World Challenge!  But before I share my kelly green fabric let me show you my completed table for paint week...


I am very happy with the way it turned out and I am very glad I took my time... even though it pretty much killed me!  








I am slightly obsessed with dipped legs right now!  I am loving the extra contrast the gold dip is adding to the green!


It took almost a year and 2 different challenges, but I finally finished this room!  Just in time to move out in 6 months!




Ok... now on to fabric!  Typically I would be super excited to source some fabulous fabric and sew something amazing.... but I so did not just have the time!  I am in the middle of the a huge sewing project for a client and I have put all other sewing projects on hold until this is done {hopefully this week, client, if you are reading ;) } So I cheated a little... 








I found these super fun green pillows at West Elm a few months back... on clearance!  I love that they are hand dyed and the buttons are a very nice touch!  I am pretty sure I couldn't have made them this good!  What do you think of my crazy pattern collection?  This is a huge stretch out of my color box... but I am really loving it!



I did rummage through my fabric collection and came up with this combo.  I am thinking new pillows are in order for my bench in my entry... AFTER all of my other sewing projects for clients!  

Is it just me... I could have little parts of Chiang Mia Dragon fabric all over my house in all the color ways and never get tired of it!  It has so many colors and they are work so well together!  

*** FYI ***
I scored my pillow covers in Mocha and almost 3 yards of fabric in Aqua all on Ebay!  I just checked and there is a set of pillow covers in the aquamarine color way for $65!!  AMAZING DEAL!  {Click here}


Be sure to visit the rest of the ladies and see how they used their color for fabric week!

Good call on being patient with the table, it turned out GREAT! Love the high gloss finish! The pillows look good in the living room too! Can't wait to see if you cover the bench in the green fabric

Tiffany, you've done a terrific job you get a "WOOT WOOT" and a fist bump! Love the table :) sometimes a table needs a pedi!

I agree with everyone else. Those dipped legs are a nice touch. I like the cork ampersand too! Nice.

Love the green table~ The gold feet are amazing! All of your pillows are amazing, I love how you mix it up!

Maury Kilgo said...

I love those green pillows with the Chiang Mia Dragon fabric. Really brings out the green in it!

The gold feet steal the show on the table. Love it!

Elyse said...

LOVE the dipped gold legs. That is really trending right now.

The dipped legs are awesome...they totally make the table! I love your mix of colors and patterns on your pillows too. I'm with you...I could have Chiang Mai everywhere, but I can't justify the price right now. Especially as I look around at my current pillows and upholstery and see how much the kids and dogs trash everything! Maybe in a few years?

Love the dippity doo da!! It's perfect with your gorgeous green table!

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

No, it isn't just you. I have bits of Chiang Mai all over the house too. It really is too beautiful to contain to one spot :)
Love the green table and brilliant idea to paint its feet gold. It is such a fantastic little detail.

Jessica @ Stay at Home-ista said...

I *just* painted dipped legs on nightstands this weekend, I'm also loving the look. When did you do that Ampersand wine cork awesomeness? It's phenomenal.

Love it all! The table is beautiful and love the gold on the bottom. I need to add a small splash of color to some of my furniture! And the "and" sign is super amazing and fun!

Not only glad to meet another local blogger...but hooray for another home decor addict! You have fantastic taste!

Can you hear my applause? And that pin straight line between the green and gold. Girl, you are good! LOVE!

The table turned out amazing and I'm a big fan of the dipped legs! Plus I'm drooling over the chang mia pillows. I really really want one or 7 but am too cheap to buy them. Maybe soon, thanks for the ebay link!
