Fresh New Look with Slipcovers

I love a good before and after picture and I have some great ones in this post.  This will show you how you can breathe new life into your old furniture.  I love the transformation of my customers living room with her new slipcovers and pillows.  The floral pillow was our inspiration and guide for colors.  We pulled the background color out for the sofa fabric and my customer fell in love with a natural linen fabric.  The sofa slipcover was finished a couple months ago and then my customer placed a slipcover order for the camel back loveseat, ottoman, cushion and several pillows done in the linen fabric. The first picture shows the living room in disarray ready for us to start staging. 

I love all the windows in this room!

In this picture you can see the before look of the ottoman and the camel back loveseat.  The ottoman received a layer of dacron to cover the deep tufting.

We replaced the two worn seat cushions with one new plump seat cushion.  This changed the whole look and feel of the loveseat.

 Then we added the pillows.  What a beautiful transformation!! My customer has a beautiful collection of pillows. Here is the new ottoman slipcover.

The sofa table was a new purchase that fits perfect behind the loveseat.
