New Arrival of Greenhouse Fabrics

I am so excited to announce that we have just added our textile section to the SHM Designs Website. Greenhouse Fabrics is an absolutely wonderful company to work with and they have incredible fabrics. I have been ordering alot of fabric for various projects recently and am always so excited to see a bolt waiting at my doorstep when I pull in the driveway. Most of the time they deliver within 1-2 business days which makes the impatient side of me very happy. I hate when you get a great creative idea in your head, find the perfect fabric to complete it and then have to wait 1-2 weeks or more to actually start it. Not a problem with this company. It's wonderful!

There are so many fabrics that Greenhouse carries, it was hard to decide which ones to put on the website. In the end I went with the fabrics that I have either used or will be using for my projects. SHM Designs can sell any of the fabrics on their site. So if you would like to browse, just go to greenhousefabrics.com. If you find one you like and want to know pricing or get a FREE Sample, just shoot me an email and let me know. I would be glad to help you.

Below are some of the Textiles for sale at shmdesigns.com:

I love both of these fabrics. The second one I posted about last week and is being used on 2 dining chair makeovers. I fell in love with this fabric before I looked up the price. Its funny I do this ALL the time; fall in love with something BEFORE I know the cost.  At $71/yd I knew I had to find a small project which did not require alot of fabric. The dining chairs were the perfect match.

 Here's are a couple other fabrics for sale:

These would be terrific on an ottoman ( again not alot of fabric for a fabric you love) or as a duvet cover.

I really like the brightness of these fabrics and how the colors just pop against the white. I used the first one on a set of pillows and the second on 2 cane chairs. Actually the pillows were made to sit on the chairs as lumbar pillows. I will show you pictures soon.

Decorating/Buying Tip: If you find a fabric you love but it seems way to pricey. Stop and think of other ways to use just a little of it. Pillows are a great way to add what you love for less money. Use the pricey fabric you love on one side of the pillow and a less expensive piece on the back, find a tray and line it with a piece of your favorite fabric or place a piece inside a matted frame and hang it on the wall as art. Don't give up on something you love, there are always ways to add a little bit of it for not alot of cost.

Take Care,
