We had a very productive weekend! After our Sunday plans went awry we decided to take a trip to Marden's. For those of you who aren't privileged to live in the northeast, you may not know the pleasure of Marden's; it's a surplus salvage store where you can discover the most random and amazing things amongst a lot of junk. We went looking for duck cloth to reupholster the dinette cushions as well as the cushion on the back couch/bed. Our first attempt was thwarted by an overly aggressive shopper but, as is often the case, all things happen for a reason and our second attempt proved to be the better of the two.
We had been looking online at fabric that averaged around $12.00 per yd. At Marden's we found options that we love and the cost was 1/4 of what we would have paid online. We do need to treat the upholstery fabrics we selected with a scotch guard-like product but hey we are ok with that.
The top image will eventually be the back bed/couch cushions and, if you look closely, you can see the striped fabric that we will make into curtains. The bottom image will be the cushions for the dinette area. Obviously, we love orange and even though the two oranges don't match the curtains really pull them together (and they won't be next to each other anyway).
Let us know what you think of our selections :-)
