Dining Room Re-Do

I have been focusing my crafting efforts this past week into incorporating the Anna Maria Horner Drawing Room fabrics into my dining room as much as possible. You already saw my little candle covers with a sneak peak at the canvases on the wall... here you can see all three of the canvases stretched with fabric (the fabric on each side is from her new coordinating Garden Party line) and my new place mats that I made yesterday.
I really love how the fabric brightens up that wall, and I didn't have to spend months sewing a wall hanging, took about an hour to do all three. See this odd looking chair in the corner? I have two of these that are going to be my next victims. They will be painted to match that fantastic turquoise color in the fabrics.
Then if I could just find a rug I like and a new chandelier I like then I could stop obsessing over this room. Oh, and some kind of arty something for either side of that big cabinet. Of course by the time I do all that I will be obsessed over some other line of fabrics...
