It has been a while since we last chatted but, no, I'm not having them.
I slipcovered them!
Aren't they adorable!
After my success with my chair last week, I decided it was time to conquer a wing back chair.
Now, if you know me, you know I do not do things the easy way. So, not only did I slipcover a wing back, I did two at the same time.
And I LOVE THEM!
I must say, I did a pretty good job for not having any training from grandma. You see, my grandma passed away recently, she was 93. I found out at the funeral that my cousins were ALL taught by my grandmother how to sew a slipcover.
WHAT? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!
I guess I missed out on that one.
Oh well, I did pretty good with what I remembered from my mother and the help of Miss Mustard Seed's videos.
This is what is under the party dress.
I was lucky enough to find a matching pair of RED wing back chairs at our local Salvation Army several years ago around Christmas time. I love these chairs because they are well built, heavy duty......but I wanted to use them more, instead of just for the holiday season.
I used a mixture of two fabrics I had in my stash in the basement. The textured one is a vintage bedspread I bought at a flea market with this very idea in mind.
Right now I have the chairs in my dinning room, I am patiently waiting for the lazy boy to die a slow death before I can put them in the living room. Maybe I can speed up the process and have the kids see who can launch their sibling the farthest from the foot rest, no I wouldn't do that, I'm not that naughty.
I am happy to be able to join Kathleen from Faded Charm for White Wednesday, Restore Interiors for Restored it Wednesday and Furniture Feature Friday with Miss Mustard Seed and a new party in the house over at Designer Garden it's V.I.P. because we all are!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
