The slip cover is finished.
I might never get the hang of this before and after thing. I don't have a picture of the before. I will take one sometime when the slip cover is off. The thing is...it has been off and back on so many times in the process of making it that I just don't feel like taking it off again right now to get a picture! One would think I would have remembered this earlier but NOOOOOOOOOO.... did not!
I am quite happy with the results. It is far from perfect but this was my very first try at a slip cover. It took some patience as I had to tweak more than once but I will be trying this again... I have a chair in the bedroom that matches this couch that needs to be covered. I have another sofa in the living room that needs a new cover..want to use the drop cloths on this one.
I have another sofa in my craft room that could use a new cover...
I think I have lots with which to practice more covers.
The View From the Back
I love the vintage crocheted trim I scored for $1.00!!!!
The Before Picture of the French desk...
The After Picture of the Desk and Chair
I covered the chair cushion in burlap.
I was waiting to take an after picture to show as I wanted to stage the desk but that has certainly not happened so I am going on and posting!
Yesterday I sanded more projects-
The dresser I purchased when I also bought the vintage trim.
The mirror is on the ground and you cannot see it..
Today I primed the pieces. I haven't decided for sure what color I want to use so it is sort of waiting, at this point.
This is a King bed I am doing for someone else.
This is a first for me. It is the first time I have taken someone else's piece and redone it for them. She wants it Shabby Chic white. We were going to be painting anyway so I decided to take the project on. Miss Kim of Sweet Sage Vintage sent the business my way as she was too busy to do it herself.
So, that and more is where I have been.. at the sewing machine and covered in paint.
From the looks of the flower beds I should be covered in plants and dirt. I hate that my beds are in the condition they are in but hubby and I decided there were more pressing matters on the inside this winter. Maybe next winter there will be a pretty after picture of the beds for you to see!
