So over the summer, I peppered you with posts about putting together our playroom (it was so much fun)!
And then it all came to a screeching halt.
There are loads of reasons why but the main reason is that I've been slow and indecisive on picking a fabric to have cushions made for the built-in bench, which is basically the last thing that needs to be done in here.
Originally I thought I'd do a plain white canvas fabric and ordered a few swatches.
Then I thought about it.
White. In a playroom.
With dirty hands, play dough, boogers, etc.
Have I lost my mind?
In my defense, I thought that at least with white, I could just remove the covers and bleach them to get them clean. But the more time we played out there, the more I began to realize that I'll probably end up having to wash these covers
And let's face it. I do enough laundry in a week, I don't need to add to it.
So, I've reconsidered my fabric choice and have gone in the complete opposite direction:
This is why I'm liking this fabric:
1. It's cheap at $11 a yard (I need to buy 8 yards).
2. The color and pattern go with the look of the room and will also disguise dirt/stains/smudges/boogers/what have you.
3. It's washable for really bad accidents.
4. It's a medium weight and described as being suitable for upholstery.
Once the sample arrives, I'll be able to confirm it's a good choice and finally have these cushions made!
