Happy Saturday! I've been a little slack with posts this week, and I've got a couple recipes about farmer's market dinner ideas, Jimmy birthday, etc. that I've started but haven't finished. In the meantime, I wanted to share this...
Do you remember my slipcover debates? Well, this morning my seamstress came to beautify this pair of Craig's List chairs. I liked them because they had 100% down cushions and a pretty shape. They were in very good condition and cheap.
I have them sitting on either side of our china cupboard.
I'm going to get a couple pillows made for them,
once I select a fabric.
I threw on some from the family room to see
how it will look.
I added a little contrasting banding at the bottom,
to give it a little oompf.
This was a last minute choice, but I think it
makes the chairs.
Never underestimate the work of a talented seamstress
or the transformation of slipcovers.
I was a little nervous about my fabric choice.
I had wanted linen but couldn't find a weight at
a price I could afford. 18 yards is a lot of fabric!
