Slipcover, Cover or Bust !

I can scarcely imagine how we used to make it without today’s ingenious slipcovers.
They are keeping many a Mom from losing their minds, and everyone else- just plain happy  and BONUS, the furniture clean !!
I personally love the softness they add to any room not to mention covering all those unsightly legs and mismatched odds and ends we pick up from time to time...

Even the little ugly ducklings can be transformed into beautiful, graceful, lovely
swans when they have a simple slipcover. Many different fabric options are available, 
but be sure to think about those remnants from an old quilt, worn out blanket, or family
tablecloth you are still hanging onto. Don’t worry if they have a few stains or tears. Just
work around them and be creative ! Think VINTAGE....

Do you have an old bench, chair or footstool that could use an update?

Send us some pictures of your projects , ask questions and we will give
you some new ideas to spruce up a tired old piece and make it your new favorite.

Beautiful, the slipcover balances all the "legs" of other furniture.

Don’t you just love the way slipcovers soften the entire room?

They can be elegant, fully gathered or a little more tailored- whichever suits your style.

You decide, look for a project and let us know.

    1. Me too ! Such a talented woman.
      Have a great week. Enjoyed all the photos of Market. I usually go here
      in Dallas, but thinking about Atlanta or Highpoint again real soon.

  5. I wish I could remember which one of my delightful followers made these incredible slip covers for the back of their dining room chairs . . . Since I don't have a blog to send you to, I'll describe them. They took a pair of jeans, cut off the legs and hemmed just the torso (tummy and butt) sewed the waist shut and slipped them over the chair backs. Then to top it off added a red napkin sticking out of the pocket. So very country cute. Just thought you might be interested. Have a great week, Connie :)

    1. Oh... I just love creative uses for everyday items. I bet they are wonderful !
      What will someone think of next ?
