Mudroom Bench Fabric

Remember my mud room inspiration pics? Well, I’m finally making some progress! I went fabric shopping today! My mother in law came over to see the boys and I got to escape for three hours! Luxurious, and very productive. Does anyone else have a full body reaction when they find exactly what they’re searching for? Just me? I knew that this Robert Allen fabric was “the one” as soon as I saw it. It’s New Damask BK in Greystone and I LOVE it!

I really wanted to pull from the colours in the adjoining powder room for my laundry & mud room reno. Between the dark grey baskets that I found at Homesense, and this Robert Allen fabric that has both the gray and yellow, I think it’s working! I’ve just placed the fabric on the bench for the picture… I do still need to sew the cover. My sewing projects for the home have been limited to roman blinds so far, so I’ve never had to do piping. Just out of curiosity, have any of you used piping before? I had thought about using some contrasting yellow piping, but now I’m thinking that I might just keep it all in the same fabric. Any thoughts?
