When I saw this tapestry fabric yesterday, I immediately thought of my zebra salad plates --see the plate in the right hand corner?
After 4 hours of sewing and about 20 minutes to set the table, I ended up with a totally new look for my dining room:
I even got to use my blah pea-soup-green napkins--they rarely go with any table. But for this one, they were perfect!
I think it's a fun change for the new year. If you look in my header, you can see these same plates used with a 1950's aqua-rimmed dinner plate. Who would have thought zebra plates would be so versatile?
I also bought a neutral home-dec fabric yesterday to make another set of chair covers. I can't tell you how much fun I have with chair covers. They are so easy to make-basically just a big pillowcase. I already have a gray set, which I use quite often.
Do any of you make chair covers?
Update: I removed the cedar greenery and redid the candles with bows and zebra fabric.
