Chintzing it up

Idle hands and a boatload of fabrics is not helpful in my world. It just extends my to do list. So I waxed my kitchen floors today, because they are that OLD, and I had three consecutive half hours of being trapped in my living room.  I played around with my piles of fabrics and came up with the above.

Since none of you lovers wanted this chintz with the gold faux bois fabulousity, I stole it back.



I whipped up some panels and stole a 1/2 yard of the blue ikat too and did up a lampshade.


Maybe I'm high on spring, but I'm loving me the 90's floral people.

The hubs hasn't noticed the girly addition yet. He is pretty good at turning a blind eye, and besides he knows it will be different in a month or two.

i just think its funny because I bitched about chintz a year ago, and now its hanging in my house.
Off to eat crow, and for the chintz haters... I understand.

Update:I think I was high on Spring, or floor wax, or the idea that Golden Girl floral could be made cool. Its feeling super busy today and a bit too "girly" for my taste. to large a dose too soon.

They look good...in-your-house! I am a hater I admit, I love your credenza and the lamp shade though!

I really like the lamp shade and I think the drapes work well with your other more modern elements.

I'm not a hater...in fact I tried to buy a chintz sofa on CL last year, but I missed it sadly. It was long, lean and lovely...now I'm really regretting it. Great dresser/console...looks divine in teal!

Hahaha! I know Sami. I'm not to sure about them today. I kind of feel like I hung the Golden Girls bedspread. They also loooked much better on a sunny day. Today they are reading peachy-gag.
Maybe a smaller dose of chintz.
