We painted the chairs this weekend, and they’re coming along nicely, though we had a little snafu with the fabric. The Spoonflower site specifically mentions that it’s a good idea to get a swatch first, and I should have listened because the colors were pretty off. I think we’re going to try again, but I’m going to have to call them and see how to get a better color match. Does anyone have any advice on that? I’m trying not to be too impatient, but I’m really excited to get them upholstered!

Hi! I just sent in some designs and I used Pantone tcx colors (I have the cotton passport book, but I think any paper guide would get you close enough). I converted them to LAB colors and didn't notice any shift on screen, then checked for out of gamut colors. I haven't gotten the swatches yet but I'll let you know how it turned out!
