    TableClothsFactory.com Colors Run True?

    I'm going to be building a hammock or 2 using the 60" x 126" Crinkle Taffeta Tablecloths for indoor hanging but in looking at the different colors I noticed that they are all using the same picture with the color altered digitally. This raised some concerns with regard to the colors of the actual tablecloth compared to the color displayed on the website. So, do the colors match or run true to the color displayed in the photos?

    Thanks

    I would say no. The colors are hard to describe, they are deeper, richer, and have an almost "candy" tint. I have the Navy blue and red, I'll see if I can find a pic for you.

    Thanks for the pics, that helps. I really like your wall anchors. Do you have dimensions & the hardware you used?

    I think mine are pretty close, when under direct light. In dimmer lighting, the darker colors almost look black.

    It is also a function of the monitor how colors are displayed. The color balance settings can make a big difference from one display to the next.

    I find the colors are fairly spot on, but they all have a shimmer to them. Black is the least shiny.

    Here are some more color examples for you. This is the purple and sage green. The colors seemed fairly accurate to me. As stated they do shimmer a little.

    Thanks Trail Runner. I used Red Oak 1x6's from HomeDepot, long enough to cross 3 studs in the walls. I think I used 2 i/2 or 3"x 3/8" lag bolts to anchor the 1x6s to the studs, then cargo tie-down D-rings mounted with 3/4"x 3/8 (or 1/4") lag bolts. Wife loves the bookshelf function!

    Thanks everyone for the pics and replies. And thank you Duffy for the info on your wall mounts.

    Be aware (because I was caught out by this) the apple green and sage green are extremely close in colour. If you are looking for them to contrast they don't.
