On to business...
I am getting really excited for my Slipcover 101 Workshop next week! I had one spot come available so if you think you can get fabric and a chair together by Friday morning, let me know.. I'd love to have one you join the class! It going to be a lot of fun and you'll get to take home a finished project! Even better! Plus I have met a few of my ladies and they are amazing!!
This week I had 2 different clients with 2 different chairs, but they went with the same cotton print! Well.. sort of.. same print, different colors. I am loving this print they picked and I better, I picked up 20 yards for pillows and a pair of chairs I'll be slipcovering for Swiss Days!
First up, this chair..
It has a great shape and the legs are pretty great! My client did not really care what kind of skirt we did, which I loved because I could add a 2" knife pleat to it. I loved how it turned out and so did my client!
Its such great print and with this soft neutral color it mellows it down quit a bit! The skirt dolls up the shape of the chair too! This fabric was so great to work with, which was good, because I had another chair to do out of the blue version of it! Plus it has a "slubby" texture to it which I love!
This is the other chair I worked on this week.. I feel like this chair would belong amongst Ron Burgundy's flute collection. It has a very "regal" appearance...
Its super curvy and just screams formal!! Well, my friends, I changed all that! Now check out this bad boy with a more happy and inviting look. I kept all the lines the same as well as leaving off a skirt.
I just love LOVE the after of this chair! It couldn't have turned out better! It makes me excited for the yellow version!! I can't wait for my client to see it in person!
Its amazing what a change in fabric will do to the look of a chair. Both fabrics were purchased at Home Fabrics and I believe they still have some left...just saying.. Here is a teaser for ya.
Its pretty great! I also wanted to remind you that I have this darling settee still available.. It can be seen at the Thanksgiving Point Emporium in Lehi. $899 for Settee with removable and washable custom fitted slipcover!
Enjoy the rest of your saturday!!
