That's what pillows and throws are for. Easy to change your mind and throw out the pillows and get new ones.

I've started "researching" fabrics, formica, and flooring. (This from someone who said they were sticking with the cheaper stock items... ) I have a bunch of samples on the way. In addition to Sailrite, I also found some neat stuff on fabric.com, Kovifabrics.com and thelogfurniturestore.com (lots of wildlife, camping-themed stuff there). I looked on ebay, too, and followed up with those companies.

When looking at the Formica website, don't forget to look at the Jonathan Adler collection, if you like bolder and more funky countertops!

For flooring, I've mostly been looking at the Armstrong website - several posts on "It's Friday" mention that Pioneer in Chilliwack will order in Armstrong products.

So many options! Hopefully the samples/swatches will help with the decision!

That's how my house is too. Not every room, but only because I haven't gotten around to repainting them. My craft room is two different shades of purple with the alternating color as trim. Living room is in the process of getting different shades of blue. Another room is blues and has a sky blue ceiling with sponged on clouds. Plus rubber stamped airplanes and soaring eagles (on the ceiling).

Yeah, lots of fun doing the walls different colors, even in the same room. Dirk prefers white, but as long as he doesn't have to paint the walls again, he's not really bothered by it. He'll love the walls in The Trailer, until I figure out how to paint the walls in there different colors. I have to ensure they'll look good. Saradipendity painted her walls a different color and it looks stunning in the photos. I'm eagerly awaiting her post on her blog as to how she painted them.

Our flooring is from IVC and Pioneer has already ordered it and it's on hand waiting until ETI needs it. Contact Jackie at Pioneer and she can tell you the different companies they can order from.

And yeah, there's LOTS of places to get dinette fabric from. That's how I ended up with a huge pile of fabric swatches to wade through. Great fun! Enjoy the process!

Thanks for the suggestion! I emailed Jackie today and she gave a very quick and friendly reply. If anyone is interested, the flooring companies that Pioneer will order from are Armstrong, Mannington, Congoleum (apparently it's not just linoleum), and Tarkett. She didn't mention IVC

Yes. Sheets of linoleum are too hard to work with in a smaller space like these trailers.

Just a question regarding ordering the fabric. I know many customers order through Sailrite which ships directly to ETI, but I noticed they sell in US dollars which is not in my best interest with my Canadian dollars. Where do the Canadians usually order from to get a good deal? I researched JT'S Outdoor Fabrics and Outdoor Fabrics Canada both out of Barrie, Ont. Both companies seem to have comparable/good prices for the Sunbrella fabric. Where have other Canadians ordered from? Thanks.

Now that I think about it, they didn't have a swatch book for IVC when I ordered. They did when we went up there last Sept and I took my flooring sample with me. When I went to order it a few months ago, I didn't take the sample since they previously had a swatch book. However, Jackie said their distributor wasn't carrying everything that they did before and I guess that was one of the lines they stopped carrying. So, there wasn't a swatch book, but fortunately I remembered the name of it, she looked it up online and the distributor had enough on hand, so I quickly placed my order. And it's now in Pioneer's warehouse, awaiting the word from ETI. Yay!

We picked out the flooring at a local flooring store and I emailed IVC for a sample, which the local rep sent. I was expecting a small sample, but it turns out it was the same size from their swatch books, so it's huge. But that's okay. I can really see what the flooring looks like and I can even stand on it to see how it feels. We like it so much we might get it for the kitchen in our house as it desperately needs replacing.

Good to know the lines they do carry.
