Cinderella Slipcover

Once upon a time there was a very sad looking wing chair.  There was bare wood showing and ripped upholstery. She was kept in her bedroom out of sight.

My customer loved the size and shape of her wing chair and chose a beautiful washed matelasse fabric for the new slipcover.   She had painted the legs and we wanted to show them off so we chose a short skirt.
 I added a little dacron to the bare wood spots at the tops of the wings.

 Before picture of the side arm.  A little different style than i had seen before.
 This picture show how I handled the arm.
Side by side before and after.

 The tuck ins were very tight and I ended up using a metal spatula to push the tucks in place.


 The wing chair back home and in her new spot in the living room so everyone can admire her.
The End!

Pretty Parsons Chair Slipcovers

 Here are pictures of some cute parsons chair slipcovers I just delivered.  In the first picture you can see the old and new slipcovers side by side.  She loved the box pleated skirt and wanted to keep the same style.



Here is a picture with all the new slipcovers around the table.

Small Sectional Slipcover

These are amazing before and after pictures. The bones of the furniture were in great shape and the seat cushions were in perfect condition.  This is a well built sectional from Arhaus. The original slipcover was in need of replacement and new pillows were in order.  The result is a brand new sectional.  The fabric is a brushed canvas in a wheat color.  I took pictures before the sectional pieces were reconnected hence the gap.

 My customer can have a whole new look by turning over the pillows to match the body of the slipcover.  She can also choose to mix things up and turn over a couple of the pillows.  I love the pillow fabric she chose.
 * hems don't match in picture- I should have adjusted how much I tucked in the back of the decking.  This can easily be corrected. Of course it is bugging the heck out of me.
 Before picture- you can see how stretched out the slipcover became over time and the pillows had seen better days.

 New pillow inserts made a BIG difference.

Custom Slipcovers Gallery- Oldies but Goodies

 This is a wide variety of slipcovers I have done..  These were all done before I had a blog and I thought I would share them with you.  I recently closed my Picturetrail account where they were being stored.  You can even see a photo stamp of my original logo.
