Computer issues have kept me from sharing projects here on a regular basis, so I thought I'd combine several recent ones together.
First is a leather bar stool update. The owner had three of these and debated throwing them away. Instead, she bought six yards of inexpensive indoor/outdoor fabric and had me make slipcovers to use them in a beach rental they own. These covers fit like a glove but slip off easily for a spin through the wash. And they look adorable from the back all lined up at the counter.
This is a chair & ottoman combo that I had previously slipcovered about 15 years ago in a gray/green chenille. The owner was updating her room but still loved this duo so she chose a pretty fabric and had me make a slipcover for the chair. The ottoman was previously skirted, so I did a little re-upholstery job and added new feet to really update the look and make it feel like all new furniture.
I also made the double width panels on the window but getting a good photo with all that light was beyond my skill level.
You may have seen these chairs in your local Target a few seasons ago. They owner fell for them, but the romance fizzled when the upholstery began to pill badly and she tired of the bold print. Many fabric samples later, she landed on this blue/gray linen look poly that turned out to be exactly what her room needed. The chairs' low, square profile have a mid-century feel in the solid fabric and make them great candidates for tailored slipcovers. I'm sure she'll be in love with her "new" chairs for a long time.
Here are a couple of chairs that I recently slipcovered for a DK Designs client.
The fun bandana print is by Duralee, and the gold linen is by Fabricut. These were really nice chairs with down wrapped cushions and great proportions.
I love the trim detail on the skirt hem. Subtle but so pretty.
HUNT AND LANE is a cool store in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware that sells authentic Indonesian furniture and accessories. They have a giant banana leaf mural inside and loved this Tommy Bahama indoor/outdoor fabric as soon as they saw it. Here are cushions for some of the teak seating pieces that I covered for them in that fabric.
I can't believe I forgot to take a "before" shot of this sleeper sofa. It came with the beach condo when the owners bought it and was sooooo ugly. Too many other projects come before new furniture but this slipcover in a pale gray washable brushed canvas make it look perfectly fresh and beachy.
