I seriously LOVE my clients and this one was soo awesome to work with! I slipped a love seat for her a few months back and the next project was her sectional. She knew she wanted to brighten up the room and change the look of the sectional. It was in great shape, just dated. Once she found fabric she we had to have it shipped from 3 locations because we needed 50 yards! Thank you Home Fabrics for coming thru for us! She chose a really pretty soft butter yellow solid heavy cotton. Perfect for making ruffled skirts. Oh and this particular sectional had a sleeper sofa inside, and because they use it quite a bit, the slipcover had to be functional.. Here is the before:
She also wanted to change the shape of the arms and cushions. The couch originally had funky arm fronts and rectangle-ish cushions. They were not quite box style cushions, so we boxed them up to give them a more solid shape, added foam to the arm tops and piping to the entire couch. I love the transformation! Talk about night and day difference! all i can say was I was dreaming of ruffles for a few days after I put it together! She absolutely loved it!! They are in the middle of redoing the family room to make it match the furniture now! And of course i could not leave with her giving me a preview of the next few projects she has for me.. Here is the after!
Pretty great right?! I love the threats to her children regarding the new living room rules… The best part is that she can always wash them!!
I also had the pleasure to drop off this little beauty!
I love this pink chair and there happens to be 2 of them! these are chairs that have been in her family and they all thought she was crazy for wanting them! Um.. no. they are crazy!! How great are they?! Well she only has room for one of them right now, but once she has the room for the other you better believe she is snagging it to slipcover. It had some shallow tufting and a skirt. she hated them both so we popped off the buttons and ripped of the skirt! She had me used white denim fabric and kept it simple with a box skirt. I love older chairs! You just don't see lines on chairs like this any more.. So Of course I kept the lines the same. She was thrilled to see the end results! I think mostly to throw it back in the families face… I know I would! Here is the after:
Now for the important stuff… my baby is 5!!! Oaks and my brother share the same birthday so of course we celebrated together while were up in SL!
I swear these pictures were taken yesterday… tear. Heres to new adventures with our little red head!
While we enjoyed our week up in SL it is nice to be back home! I am working on a few couches, a ton of dining room chairs and like 30 random cushions! Not to mention all the stuff I need to slipcover of Swiss Days! I can't wait to show you the end results! I am not sure when my next trip up to SL will be but hit me up if you are wanting on my schedule! Right now its looking like the end of June or beginning of July.. Have a great weekend!!!
