Decisions and Budgets - ICK!

Decisions!  Decisions!  UGH!  I have been looking online at fabrics for the living room curtains for MONTHS!  ****What is the difference between curtains and drapes, by the way?  I don't know!!!****  Anyway, I finally ordered fabric samples from Warehouse Fabrics, Inc. as they had the best price I found per yard and they were only $2.50 per sample, including shipping.  Some places wanted $5-$6 plus shipping.  I didn't see that happening.  Anyway, the samples came today. 

What do ya think?  I love that it has both black and brown in it.

I am thinking of making a valance for my one window in the living room. 
Something similar to this using the finials and showing both fabrics.

I gotta go work on the budget for the living room/kitchen projects.  My hubby is standing over me hounding me about prices.  UGH! 

Let me know what ya think!


  1. I like the fabrics you chose way better than the one in the window photo. I like the patterns!! :)

  2. I am no stranger to a budget so I know how you feel on this one...Im loving your ideas! Cant wait to see what you come up with~

  3. I am a total pattern/color girl so I love those fabrics and also the valance in the second pic! Good luck on that darn budget!
