Slip Cover Updates

It's better to post late than never, right?

My client picked up this "Victorian Garden" print couch.  It was beautiful just the way it was, but she wanted to protect it and to change the look of the room.

 The finished product  is a great addition to her lovely home.





I wanted to acknowledge some other things that are going on in my life. I just recently had surgery.  In my case surgery was a necessary and wonderful blessing.  Some lovely ladies in my church decided to help me remove wallpaper and paint my home before I was admitted to the hospital.  They worked so hard just to help me out.  They got into places I thought only my 5 year old could reach!

My new friend Penny painting trim without tape. She is supernatural amazing!

We also have a summer full of birthdays!! My husband  turned 39 on the 4th of July.



HAPPY FRIDAY PEOPLE!

Stripes Slip cover



My client wanted a slip cover that was just as good as her PB slip cover.  I have to say that I hadn't ever really inspected a PB slip cover before.  Once I saw the PB slip cover, I let her know that it wouldn't be very hard to make it "just as good".  Let's just say, she was pleased with my work.

AFTER- skirt intentionally left long per clients request

Drop Cloth Couch and Slip Cover



This is a tale of two slip covers. The first slip cover is not mine!!!  My client has a couch that has a  manufacturer made slip cover.  She is opening a new yoga studio and wanted to put a couch in the lounge area.  She wanted a clean lined white couch, so she chose drop cloth.  Drop cloth material is very popular in my area right now.

 The client loved the drop cloth slip cover, so I am a happy camper.

AFTER-  I call this style "sheet cake".  Can you guess why? 



HAPPY THURSDAY!
