Has January Jumpstart inspired you to take on an upholstery project? We recently recovered our dining room chairs with some IKEA curtains, and have used their fabrics for other projects in the past. Bold, colorful, and cheap, it's the kind of stuff our DIY dreams are made of.
We haven't seen the new Fredricka fabric in person yet, but we have a feeling we'll be picking up a few yards next time we're there. We're especially liking this orange and red Amy Butler-esque pattern above.
It took us several years of regular visits to realize IKEA even carried fabric, now the section (usually tucked away behind the window coverings) is a can't-miss for us. We tend to snap up fabric we like when we're there even if we don't have a specific use in mind, because like many of their products it's seasonal and cheap.
Fredricka fabric at IKEA, $5.99 a yard.
