Today I went to Fabricland to buy the fabric to cover my vintage dressing table. I had perused their website and there were several possibles although I really fancied stripes so the table looked like the Cath Kidston dressing table that originally inspired me.
Our Fabricland is tiny, crammed full and always busy so I have to confess I don't enjoy shopping in there as much as one would think and typically they didn't have anywhere near as big a selection as online.
After much deliberation I chose this:
I had decided on the pink when I saw it online, but in reality the pink was a bit coral/salmony (not a shade I am fond of) so in the end I went for the blue.
I also selected some other bits and bobs, proffered my debit card and the darn thing was declined. There I stood with everyone eyeing me up and down (they obviously thought I was going to have to do the walk of shame) but I *knew* I had money in there so I telephoned the bank (thank goodness for mobiles).
Yet again the bloomin' bank had put a fraud hold on my card - they seem to do it at least once a month and it drives me mad!! It usually happens because I have made a few small transactions through Paypal and that flags up as suspicious - it's soooooo annoying!!
So I was in the store an hour before I sorted it all out.
I came home and have made a start, the top is re-upholstered and it was a NIGHTMARE!! Really tricky, took ages and now my sciatica is playing up a treat!!
I will hopefully have more piccies to share with you tomorrow....
