Fabric Market




Another favorite spot of mine this trip was the fabric section of the market. It is full of several streets of beautiful fabrics, tassels, beads, etc. I thought of a couple of my friends that would have gone gaga over this place. My mission was to find some fabric to take home and make drapes for my bedroom. Yes, I have lived in this house for 3 years now and still have paper shades on the windows. Scott and I have tried a few times to put something up, but have not been able to come to an agreement on anything. After spending a couple days looking at the fabrics we decided to just ask how much the cost would be for the shop to make the whole drape. The price was INCREDIBLE and a deal was made :) The nicest family owned and ran the shop. The son spoke pretty good English and was very thorough in being sure everything was as I wanted. They look so much better then I would have been able to do and I LOVE them. It was worth waiting for 3 years. To sweeten my happiness my Mom said she would pay for them as a gift to me! Thank you soooooooooo much. A perfect early birthday present along with bringing us all the way to Korea for an incredible 2 weeks. Now I might just need to have them send me treatments for the rest of the windows in the house!! Oh how I wish this place were here in Texas.
Here is the finished product up in our bedroom

Yes, the wall was already orange. We have 2 walls of orange that are accent walls. They look good so we don't need to repaint!
