i bought this curtain fabric for the last house an i am so glad i didn't use it and waited instead. I also bought this matching oilcloth which really is a perfect match. As i was finishing the curtains, the sun poured into this room all day and it was such a joy, i couldn't have be more grateful. I have ambitious plans for this dresser involving a whole lot of scrubbing and a shed load of paint. I am thinking maybe a taupe colour similar to these curtains. Lets hope the sunshine continues and maybe this dresser won't be too far behind.
