and here is the afterKarin had some matelasse bedspreads she wanted to make a slipcover out of. We thought it would be best to use the existing scalloped edging for the skirting and thankfully we had enough.
I love the way this one turned out... so clean and simple but with the beautiful detail from the matelasse texture, that my camera does not seem to be picking up on in these photo's :(
Thanks for stopping.

look at what I found at the local thrift store! I love the shape of this chair cute little curved wings and petite arms and its a rocker to boot.
I had to take a picture of the legs in the front they are wheels the back legs are not, hubby says that it's so you can lift up the back of the chair and wheel it where ever you want. so clever.Before
Junk Bonanza I'll be there with Claire at the Hog Shed booth on Thursday the 18th.
Hope to see you there

I'm back from a great vacation and getting caught up on blog posts that should have been done before I left. This is a love seat for a client that wanted a super simple slipcover that would be easy easy easy to take off an wash alot because in her words " I will be eating on it and don't want to worry about spilling anything"
Have a great weekend.
I'll be back next week with a couple of other projects I'd like to share.

Well here is the latest creation or re-creation I should say and the last chair that I will be offering at the shop . this is one of the chairs that I have had around for awhile .I took some time to do some shopping around some of our local vintage shops with a friend and found a great old chenille bedspread that was in almost perfect condition .. not enough to do a whole slipcover with but enough for a little combo pack.
have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

I was getting ready for another sale and realized that I needed a piece for the shop.
I've had this parsons chair ( sorry no before picture) sitting around my shop for quite some time
it was in great shape but I wanted to dress it up a little bit.
I had purchased some Rachell Ashwell curtains at target a while ago that did not work out in my home and I just didn't wa
nt to take them back so they too have been sitting around my shop.
so I made them into a slipcover for this chair.
just a simple gathering in the back with a tie to keep everything snug.
There she is all finished up. This chair did make its way to the sale and has sold. Thank you to its new owner for your purchase.
Thanks for stopping.
and have a great rest of the week
