But first - the other night at HomeGoods, when I picked up my open/closed sign for River City Sweets, I also bought a ceramic pineapple as inspiration for the dining room. Since we want the dining room to be comfortable, casual, and inviting to guests, what other symbol better represents those things than the pineapple? It seems very Virginia to me, and it has me inspired to get this process seriously started.
Isn't it cute? We have shelves hanging in the room now, which I'll stain to match the new furniture, and I can see this little guy sitting on one of the shelves, saying "Welcome!" haha
Now, back to U-Fab. This place is AWESOME! Most of the fabric I saw was $2.99-$7.99 a yard - way cheaper than chains. Here are some that we liked, and as usual, my commentary :)
This one has the colors we like, but it looks like boxer shorts:
Here's plaid, with the reds we want:
And another with reds, but stripes. Not really a fan of this one:
Here are our two favorites of the day. In the store:
And, one the wall:
