I am not a fan. They're way to big so I'm constantly having to readjust them. Like I need one more thing to do. It's just really sloppy. And thought he color is perfect for four kids I have two brown leather sofas and it's just too much brown.
See sloppy. I don't likey.
So after I meet a brilliant woman named Miss Mustard Seed and she did a wonderful series on how to make slipcovers I was giddy with excitement. I got to work right away. And now my sad, but oh so comfy chair looks like this. It wasn't easy and it's definitely not perfect, but I'm so proud of it and the fact that I did it myself. And it's much better than any of the before mentioned options. Here are a few steps along the way.
I just love the look of it. And as I said it's not perfect, but it was my first attempt and I love how it looks.
I used painters drop cloths purchased from Lowe's. Now I have to get started on the second one. I can't wait and I think I have learned a lot and it should be easier with fewer mistakes. There are lots of others to check out at Miss Mustard Seed so go on over and enjoy.
