Back in July of 2008, I showed you how to turn black and white striped fabric into chevron upholstery fabric. What I really wanted, but didn't know exactly how to execute it, was a chevron patterned area rug. This is by far the best tutorial for a chevron patterned rug that I've seen. Carissa from The Fabulous Design File shows exactly how to do it. Think of the color possibilities. (gray and cream, gray and cream, gray and cream)
Coming across a decent dresser at a thrift shop is always a delight. The logistics of lugging it home and the time involved in 'flipping' are another story. Kristen, of Kristen F. Davis Designs in Atlanta obviously has worked out those details. Last week Design Sponge posted a Before and After of Kristen's jazzed up dresser project.
