Decorating with Spools

0 Comment

Recently my wife had a suggestion for a new way to use thread and I thought it was a great idea to share with you.

Like many baby boomers we’ve decided to downsize and my wife was looking forward to decorating our new downsized home. This time she was going to have everything just the way she always wanted it. She had spent months looking at all of the interior design magazines and was ready to go.

Looking at the broad color range in the Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP thread assortment she got an idea – she selected three spools of thread in the colors she had chosen as her base color palette.
The spools were perfect for matching colors for bedspreads, fabric for her draperies and pillows, furniture fabrics, and even her paint. Best of all the spools fit neatly in her purse so that she was ready to color match whenever she found just the right piece of furniture, or fabric. Now she has a perfectly color matched home just the way she had imagined it as she dreamed over the magazines.
