On Friday Jodi and I shopped for fabric at Home Fabric and Rugs in Cerritos, CA. I love this place! They have great fabrics for your home (hence the name, duh) and they are really reasonably priced. Check in your area and see if they have a similar store. Even if you don’t a lot of the “wholesale only” stores will have a sale day where they’re open to the public… you just need to ask!
None of these beauties are more than $13 a yard!
However, the real reason we came to this store is because of The Back Room. This is where there are tons of beautiful fabrics and trims at total close-out prices.
These fabrics start at $2 a yard!
I can (and do) spend hours in here.
When you have to take your 7 year old Trusty Side-Kick around with you, it’s helpful that he is happy to play with a rubber band he found on a roll of fabric. A rubber band. For an hour. (I love that kid!)
Since we are going for a beachy/nautical color palette for Rick & Jodi’s, we kept some of our Pinterest inspiration photos in mind when choosing the fabrics.
Like this one:
We found them! For pennies on the dollar! Yay!
We will be making 2 shower curtain sets, recovering 6 dining room chairs, making a cornice box valance, 2 full length drapery panels, and 2 faux Roman shades. And possibly some throw pillows.
I’m so excited! A tutorial for the shower curtains will be coming up soon…. because I use a glue gun to do it. 🙂
