Last week I posted about my Home Goals for 2012. The first thing I really want to tackle on my list? Start introducing more of my eclectic style in my traditional great room, which means a POP of color and some funky pieces.
My new color scheme is going to have a lot of browns, peacock blue and red (I have to work with what I got and those two red accent chairs are in great condition!). I went through my stock of fabric and found this bold red swirly pattern. Perfect!
Let me just say… lamp shades can be tricky to cover! To help me figure out the best way to cut my fabric, I created a pattern template out of butcher paper. Much easier this way!! OH, I made sure I cut the fabric with about an extra 1/2 inch on each side to leave room for user error!
And that’s it! Don’t you LOVE how the fabric perfectly matches the swirls of the lamp? Yeah, totally not on purpose. I actually didn’t even notice how well they went together when I first picked out the fabric :) DOH, sometimes I just don’t know if I’m awake or dreaming.
