This is something I’ve been meaning to get to for some time… you know, life tends to get in the way lol. I used to keep this nice old chair which belonged to my Grandmother in my bedroom but after the move there just wasn’t room. So I thought it would be nice to have in the dining room/living room area. However the fabric on it had definitely seen better days. Since it was probably the very first thing a visitor would see when entering the front door it was time for a makeover.
Once I managed to remove the cat from the chair, … several times… (it’s one of her favorite spots) the chair is now sporting a new removable and washable slipcover. The colours are the from the fabric I used to make my dining chair cushions from and also a small runner.
I loved the bows on the chairs so put a nice big on on the back of the chair to help hold the cover in place. A button on each side hold the cover around the front legs. I loosely based the design on one I found on the Internet.
Anyway here are a couple pictures of the finished chair.
