Slipcovers

From Freebie to Fresh and Fabulous

Have you ever inherited a piece of furniture that you felt obligated to keep but doesn't fit your decor or color scheme?  Or maybe you found a chair for a steal of a deal (or free) that would be perfect if only it had a different fabric.  I have!  I admit I have a slight compulsion… Continue reading From Freebie to Fresh and Fabulous

A Thankful Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Me! When I finally took the leap and “hung my shingle” a little over a year ago, I had no idea where this business would take me, but I felt strongly about doing something that used my skills that was also a creative outlet, allowed me the flexibility to work around my… Continue reading A Thankful Anniversary

California Chair in Coral

The right fabric makes all the difference.  When Julie moved to Virginia from California, she brought along this awesome chair complete with palms. The chair was in perfect condition but the fabric didn't go with anything in her new home.       She was planning to repurpose it in her basement guest bedroom and was looking for something to coordinate with the… Continue reading California Chair in Coral

New Love for an Old Chair

I found this chair over ten years ago at a consignment shop and have had a love-hate relationship with it ever since.  I love it and my husband hates it. Or at least he did.  With the mini-makeover of my lake house basement master bedroom and in conjunction with our ongoing downsizing and merging of… Continue reading New Love for an Old Chair

White after Labor Day

At some point in your life you probably have acquired a piece or two of furniture from your parents. A piece that was well used, familiar, and probably a little shabby looking (and not in a “shabby chic” sort of way).  However, chances are the furniture was not the right color or look for your décor.  As long… Continue reading White after Labor Day

Graduation

Terre  was on a mission to pull together her living room for her daughter’s high school graduation and the faded striped chair and fraying ottoman either had to go or get a redo. The Pennsylvania House chair was in good shape except for the faded fabric and dated red stripe that didn’t go with her new… Continue reading Graduation

Shades of Gray

This busy mom and teacher had a beautiful unique couch that she had purchased before two kids and two pets came along. It has a wood frame with a  neutral colored linen cushions and back.  Thankfully slipcovering the cushions would be a perfect solution to breath new life into the couch, give it a whole new look and… Continue reading Shades of Gray

A Sunny Little Chair

This slipper chair looked great before the slipcover but because it sits in a sunroom with lots of sun, the once bright yellow fabric had turned more of a mustard color. My client loves yellow and found a beautiful fabric from Fabrics.com that is rated to withstand 1000 hours of sunlight.  Since it is an indoor/outdoor… Continue reading A Sunny Little Chair

Unusual Useful Upscale

I've slipcovered ottomans, parson chairs, loveseats, arm chairs, side chairs, wingback chairs, benches, and bar stools but never a piece like this!  This was a fun little project that included a little arts and crafts as well. My client brought me this unique piece to recover.  She was envisioning a laundry cart or possibly a… Continue reading Unusual Useful Upscale

Coral Cuteness

My client brought me a couple of interesting and challenging projects to work on to kick-start the new year.  She inherited these two great chairs from her grandmother.  Chairs like this are worth the time and effort to update, giving them a new purpose and a fresh look.  They were solidly built and held up well over the years, but… Continue reading Coral Cuteness
