The other day Dan saw a classified ad in a local trade paper for new piece of 12'x18' carpeting, complete with pad for $195. He called and we went to see it. The price was too good to be true but I was doubtful we could be so lucky as to having it match the fabric I was using to make draperies. Lo and behold, we couldn't have found a better match.
|The camera doesn't catch the match as well as live, but not bad.|
There's a story behind the drapery fabric as well. I scoured every store and outlet in town but wasn't happy with anything until I found "just" the fabric at Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately there was only a few yards left on the roll. The manager said she could order a new roll, but it turned out the fabric was discontinued. That was sad, but what else could I do? I continued looking for curtains.
A couple months later I was back in Hobby Lobby, wondering if they'd gotten anything new. There it was! A brand new fat roll of that same "discontinued" fabric! With one of their weekly 40% off coupons I got it for a reasonable price. I did the same for lining material too.
Dan wants to install the carpet himself, but first he will finish the chicken coop. In the meantime, I'll finish painting the bedroom ceiling. I feel extremely blessed.
