One fabric, three ways

This week is just blazing past me! I have been working on a few projects the past few weeks, and have been able to use the same fabric on all three projects (the last one, my mom made, because I don't sew).
The first are two barstools I found for a steal on Craigslist...they were in bad smoker's house shape. We sanded them down, stained them in a bombay stain, and recovered the seats. Simple..with a very rewarding outcome.
Before....
 Those seats were awful, the picture doesn't do them justice!

 After, cleaned up...

 I used yellow Ikat fabric from fabric.com...

 On to the next project, a vintage bamboo lamp from the Hospice store. The base was painted white, and I bought a drum shade from Target, that I recovered in the yellow Ikat fabric. I used this demo from Isabella and Max.


Now, I am happy with it, but I'm still deciding on which color I want to use for the trim around the bottom and top of the lamp. Opinions?

 I really didn't want to use this picture, but it's the only one that shows the details of the lamps, so just ignore me please.

This last project was a pouf my mom made for me with the yellow ikat fabric. It has become Dip's favorite nap spot, so it looks a little deflated. I think he has seriously been sent to us to prepare me for children, he whines when I'm trying to get ready, leaves messes everywhere, and WILL not eat his food until we have run our hands through it! He is such a high maintenace animal.
