Defeat the Dark Side with Slipcovers

The new Star Wars movie starts today and I couldn't resist. LOL

My customer was looking for slipcovers to lighten the look of her dark dining table.  The linen/cotton fabric was the perfect solution.  She also wanted to eliminate the look of the attached back cushion.  The solution was to make a seperate undergarment.  The result is a smooth back concealing the attached cushion. The new slipcovers lends a lighter feeling to the kitchen area.
Here is a picture of the original kitchen table.

Classic Cotton and Ruffles

  This a a great new look for my customer's sunroom furniture.  The furniture was ready for a new set of slipcovers. The room is very inviting and cozy now.  I am in love with the classic cotton fabric and the ruffled skirt. She purchased a pretty fabric to cover the pillows. They were delivered just in time for Thanksgiving day.

Mother Goose Slipcover

I nicknamed this chair the "Mother Goose" chair when I saw the beautiful carved arms.  My customer just became a grandmother and this room is dedicated to her first grandson and many more grandchildren to come.  This will be the perfect spot to read his favorite stories and for rocking to sleep. I love the look of the denim fabric against the exposed wood.

 My customer wanted to include this iron bench into the room.  She chose the same denim fabric and a ruffled skirt for the slipcover.

Pet Friendly Striped Slipcover

The internet is amazing!  My customer's sister is from Texas and found me online to make her sister a slipcover in the Cleveland area.   She was helping her sister decorate her new house and knew she wanted to slipcover her dark sofa for a lighter and fresher look.  She had sent me a picture of a slipcover she had had made and that would be the inspiration for the new slipcover.  Well, I think we hit the nail on the head.  Take a look.

***My customer has two dogs and if you have pets then you will definitely want to see the pet cover I made for this sofa.  Pictures are at the end of this post.

Oops - one of the arm covers is turned the wrong way.

Sofa before

 Here is the inspiration picture from her sister's house in Texas. 

Here is my customer's living room after her sister finished decorating.  I love the pictures above the sofa, the natural rug, lamps and chairs.  Simply beautiful!  I love her decorating style.
Can you see the pet cover in the picture above?  I will show you more at the end of this post. 

 This sofa is from Lazy Boy Furniture.  The seat cushions had become worn on one side and had a dip in the cushions.   She called them and they sent her new seat cushion inserts. You can tell from the previous picture how much thicker the new cushions are in this picture. 

I wanted to let everyone know that Lazy Boy has great customer service and they stand behind their products!

Hello! My customer snapped this shot of me on the day I was delivering the slipcover.

Pet Cover Pictures
Here starts the section of my post that shows the type of pet cover I offer.  The pet cover will protect the seat cushions only.  My customer also ordered arm covers.  When her dogs get the pet cover dirty it is much easier to only have to wash the pet cover. She can simply remove the pet cover when expecting company. Voila! Clean cushions.

 This picture shows the pet cover on the seat cushions.  You can barely tell it is there.

 Here is a picture of how it looks under the cushions.  This design helps keep the pet cover in place.
