Girls Room:: Dallas Sources

Thursday, June 3, 2010

The girls' room is coming along painfully slow (to me, anyway).  I made it my Memorial Day goal to get fabric for the one window in the room.  And although I finally ended up with a purplish grey printed cotton from Hancock, I found a few new sources for fabric.  

Fabric sources:  Sew Mama Sew Shop (online)
City Craft (small local fabric shop that carries Amy Butler, Anna Marie Horner, Michael Miller, etc.)

I totally thought this was grey when I bought it.  When I stepped outside the store, it was obviously more purple.  But I still like it. 

I'm still on the mad hunt for a vintage tall dresser/chest of drawers/wardrobe thing to paint a pale pink.  In my hunt, though, I've found a few new Dallas shops that sell used furniture:

Lula B's: 2 locations with booths of Mid-century relics, furniture.
Atomica Modern: more Mid-century goodness.
Salvation Army at Harry Hines (although the entrance is on Inwood): the largest SA I've been to, loads of furniture.  

Still looking...

Any local favorites you've found?
