What Would YOU Do?

The other day, I hit the jackpot on Shannon's The Designer's Attic - scoring five yards of Schumacher Katsugi for 1/3 of the retail price. Designers and bloggers have been singing the praises of this loose floral for years, and I for one, am still on the bandwagon.
Now, I just need to decide what I'll do with it! Five yards is a good amount to work with, so I'm not even considering something small like accent pillows.
Tom Scheerer aka Katsugi King has used it to great effect in bedrooms... but my bed frame would hide a great portion of the skirt...
Curtains. Maybe. But I'd have to pull it together in a room scheme....
So, what say you? What would YOU do with five yards of Katsugi?

A fab accent/arm chair? So you could really see it splayed out in all its glory...

5 yds - I'd cover a headboard or an ottoman. Love your ideas for drapes too.

I really love that fabric. I would go with curtains or a great upholstered chair.

Oh, I was so wanting that fabric, but didn't know what I would do with it. So glad you got it! I bought some of Shannon's fabric a while back (Zimba) but still haven't used it. Starting to feel like a fabric hoarder. I would use it on an accent chair or bench (maybe at the end of your bed if you wanted to use it in your bedroom?). I'm sure you'll find just the right spot!

What a great score! SO many things to make hmmm. I might make curtain panels- that way if I got sick of them as curtains the fabric would still be intact to use for something else :)

I'd choose chair or bench, I think. But in reality, if it was me I'd probably be paralyzed by indecision... if it was 2 yards, easy, pillows... but 5 yards!!! You can do something totally fab!

I hope no one cringes.....I would make a shower curtain or a tablecloth. Now let me explain..I have a bathroom thats just for show it never gets used I've been thinking about spurlging on ikat fabric. I just think it would look so stunning, as for the tablecloth why not? You can use a beige or white anytime why not be different. I'm just sayin'
