Couch slipcovers



 I would like to start off by wishing everyone out in blog land a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Every year I worry about if I'm going to eat to much; this year I would just like to focus on the blessing of my family.  I am grateful that they put up with me and I am grateful that they support me through all my different phases of life.



 On to my slipcovers.  I did not get a BEFORE of this picture.  My client's couch was a dark green with pillow back cushions.  We redesigned her back cushions and boxed them.  We gave her couch a lovely white slip cover made from a natural twill.  I have to say that this fabric may be my new favorite.  It is fairly thick and is very soft to the touch.  You can find it at your local Walmart.

My next client had a matching couch and loveseat that were out of date and tired.  They were very deep and comfy couches that she wanted to update.  She chose to cover them in drop cloth.  We decided to box her back cushions to help update the furniture.

I had a lot of fun with this next couch.  My client chose to use drop cloth, but she "oxi-cleaned" it to make it a bright white.  Her drop cloth ended up being a little thin, so we had to line it so the plaid would not show through.  The client chose a 6" boxed skirt.  It turned out so cute.

It has been a hectic and busy November.  I look forward to spending time with my family this week and relaxing just a bit.  I have two more projects and then I am taking December off to enjoy the holiday season.
