Fabric Swap

As you know, I'm in the process of changing the overall look of our family room area.  Patterns, colors and textures in fabric definitely define a space, so after I painted the walls, I started thinking about swapping out pillows and other fabrics in the room.  The coffee table has a glass top that I covered in fabric a couple of summers ago. You can read more about that here.

I'll just remind you what the table looked like when I found it at a yard sale for $2.50.

Then, it looked like this.

Now, it looks like this.

I searched at Joann's and Hancock for a gray printed fabric but I had no luck.  I ended up looking online and came across this chevron print that I loved from Carousel Designs for only seven dollars a yard.  Seven dollars?  You don't have to ask me twice.  I was shocked at the price and the quality.  I will defintely visit this site again.

To get started, I peeled off the old fabric and cut my new fabric to size.  Next, I took the glass top and fabric outside to attach it with spray adhesive.  Once it was attached, I ironed it and placed it back on the table.  Quick, easy and painless.

I love quick, inexpensive projects that make a big impact.  The best part, I have more than half a yard of fabric left to use for other things down the road.  I actually used a small scrap of it already as a gift tag on a birthday present for our friend's little girl. 

Stay tuned for more quick changes I'm making to the family room!
