    I love this fabric and have surveyed everyone in the shop, and we cannot decide which color is better!

    Please help us choose!

    Well it's hard telling from the picture; but I like the brown on the first one better. Elaine

    I like the second one better because it shows more definition of the brown objects in the print.

    I like the background on the second one better because it looks rustic and weathered.

    If I were to buy this fabric, I believe I'd go with the first one.

    The second for me - I prefer the better contrast between objects and background.

    I likey both, but if I had to choose it would be the grey. Makes everything 'pop'.

    Another vote for the grey background - both because it makes the other brown objects (especilly the boots and the guitar) pop, and because I like the look of the old, weathered boards.

    The gray one looks like what a REAL barn looks like here in Central Oregon!

    What is it going to be put with? Is this the back or part of the front? I like them both, but the brown just a bit better.

    I like the second, the colors don't get washed away as in the first.

    I vote for gray. The gray has a softer look.

    There's so many possibilities and combinations with both, but to stand alone, I prefer the second print.

    I like the brown one the best. The colors of the objects in that one are deeper and richer. While there is more contrast in the grey one, the objects are also lighter and to me faded out.

    I like the grey - it's unexpected and richer looking.
