More Fun with a Staple Gun

In Home on March 4, 2013 at 6:00 am

While shopping with Elly and my sister-in-law in New York City, I found fabric in an unusual spot.

Crate & Barrel

The bolts of fabric were beautiful and caught my eye immediately, but I didn’t think for a moment that one could buy the fabric by the yard. It had to be for custom tablecloths or curtains. Crate & Barrel is not a fabric store.

I was both wrong and right.

The fabric was for sale. I bought some orange and green fabric, unable to walk away from such bright, happy colors.

I was right in the sense that the fabric wasn’t sold by the yard. It was sold by the foot!

I bought 2 feet based upon the very helpful sales lady’s recommendation.

Her estimate was accurate; 2 feet was enough to recover two dining chairs.
