So I have been looking at rooms and colors, but what I really need to decide on first are the fabrics. I will be reupholstering 3 chairs (2 are wing backed). I am also going to sew drapes for 2 picture windows too. Whew, I am exhausted just thinking about all the work! Anyway, I decided to choose the fabrics first then match paint colors to the fabrics. This makes sense because it is easy to have paint color-matched to any fabric, but much harder to find fabric that will coordinate with paint color. My goal is to only buy fabric that is under $10 a yard. I will need 5 yards to do each chair. The colors I am thinking about for the living room are some shade of aqua, gray, yellow & orange. After searching online fabric stores I have come up with the following swatches. Which ones would you pick?

Wow. I had the hardest time trying to get all the swatches to line up on the screen. After 2 hours of trying, this is the best I could do! I found these fabrics at Fabric.com and Onlinefabricstore.net. Please leave a comment and let me know which fabrics you would choose for this project! I want to order some swatches by the end of the week.
