Unexpected Fabric Find

I saw a home tour on Made By Girl and I fell in love with this fabric:

On one of our three snow days this week, Dave and I braved the elements to keep me from going stir crazy and we hit up JoAnn's to see if they had any left. Sad for me, they didn't, but I did find a gorgeous 4.5 yards of a linen Ikat fabric for less than $30! Woo to the hoo!

Recently I had taken down the old curtains in the guest bedroom because of a weird discoloring so the timing couldn't be better!

I used the tried and true no sew iron on hem and it worked like a charm, yet again.

It's funny for me because our whole home is colorful and then the guest bedroom comes in nice and neutral. I like that you never know what you're going to get. : )

Have a fantastic weekend, friends!

I grabbed a few yards of the exact same fabric, only in purple not teal, from JoAnn's last spring... haven't done anything with it, probably turn them into pillows.

That ikat fabric looks like it could be from somewhere more upscale than JoAnns, great find!

Those curtains look great! I love the fabric.. it is often hard to find a great ikat. When I saw that home tour it was the fabric on the bulletin board that struck me too:)

i think the new drapes are the perfect choice! i love that they provide a focal point of pattern and still keep that overall neutral look. way to go, joi!

I really love your guest bedroom. Of course, I love all your rooms, but this one really speaks to me - the color phobe in me. ;)

Love the new drapes.

I LOVE Ikat! I just bought some Ikat fabric in blues and tans a few weeks ago and I can't wait to get going on a few projects with it. The curtains are fabulous.

I bought the same fabric at Hancock Fabric except it's blue. Love the curtains! =)

I actually have that fabric! I got it at the JoAnne's near MidRivers Mall, but that was a while ago. Hope you eventually find it!

@Modernvintage-You have me totally wanting to venture out there! : )

Elsa said...

They look really good! I did my own no-sew curtains the other night...and can't wait to do some more for other rooms. I think I also need that fabric in my life!!! It's gorgeous.

You TOTALLY rocked this fabric, girl! I've never been a huge fan of ikat but I can't deny the "designer" factor it instantly gives a room, esp. yours.

Tonia of Chic Modern Vintage said...

Great that you found the fabric you like and at a great price to boot! It looks beautiful in the room

Sharstin said...

Suzie said...

WOW! The fabric pairs so nicely with the neutral colors in your space, especially the brown & gold pillows! Beautiful, Joi!
