Last weekend Matt and I ended up going over to Triangle Town Center mall. There’s not a whole lot there but they have this really awesome store called ZGallerie. I love to go in this store and look around. I would love to buy some of there stuff but it’s a little pricey and I’m not sure how Matt would feel coming home to some of the items they have. Of course I think it is all fantastic. 🙂
Anyway, while we were there looking through the art work I found a couple of neat prints. They gave me an idea. Since they didn’t match our bedroom and well they were $90.00 each, which isn’t that bad, I’ve now decided to make something similar. I just need to find something with a pattern I like and colors that match our room and then I can frame them. My first thought was fabric and over the weekend we were by a fabric store so I made Matt run in. I found a really cool print in a sample pack but they were out of the bolt. Booo! There is another fabric store closer to work so I decided to run there during lunch today. I looked and looked and they had a lot of fabric but nothing I really thought would work. Plus there was a really long line at the cutting station.
Since I seemed to be out of luck in the fabric department it hit me that I might could find some cool napkins that would work. This would also keep me from having to deal with figuring out the repeat of a pattern and measuring. Because I pretty much suck at measuring. 🙂 There was a World Market next to the fabric store so I headed next door. I looked at everything from gift wrap to bags to pillows as I made my way around the store. When I finally got to the kitchen and dining section I realized they didn’t have anything either. They had some cute stuff but nothing that would match our bedroom. All in all it was pretty unproductive.
Now I am on the search for something with a cool pattern that will do with the blue and brown I have in the bedroom. Hopefully I will find something soon. If and when I do I’ll post some pics.
