My Slipcovers Are Here! My Slipcovers Are Here!

After a very long time, I finally got my new slipcovers. I had given the upholsterers the old slipcovers to use to make the pattern, and then supplied them with the fabric I got on sale. I've been treating everything with Scotchgard this afternoon, and then dog and child can slump and sleep all over chair and ottoman! I'm glad that I went with the off-white neutral fabric vs. a floral, or even a color. I only wish that the fabric had been a little lighter in weight so that the guys could have made a ruffle around the bottom of both the chair and ottoman, but I think in the long run I'll be happy that I went with a heavier fabric just for durability reasons.

I just noticed that the fern on the buffet looks better too!

Your new slipcover looks great! The chair and ottoman look like the perfect spot to read in.

Great looks like a great spot to curl up in on a rainy day. Remember those rainy days in Georgia?

Very nice! The fern is happy that it doesn't have to compete with the floral pattern on the chair anymore :o).

They look so beachy and comfy!

I have 2 chairs in my basement just waiting to be re-done.

It must feel great to have that done :)
