slip covers!

This is my before picture! I have had these chairs for about 18 years! They are a great shape. A simple classic club chair but the the dark green is sooo over! I have been following Miss Mustard Seed's Blog for some time. She has a tutorial for slip covers. I watched each segment several times and thought I could do it. Her blog is on my side bar if you would like to check out her blog and or her tutorials. I was going to use drop clothes for my slip covers but couldn't find the shade I wanted. for some reason they were all very gray and I wanted an oatmeal color. Wal-Mart actually had what I needed at only 5.99 a yard! Woo hooo! Each chair cost me about 60.00$ That my friends is a bargain! I love the chairs. I think they look awesome!

They look good! I am seeing a slip in my future, possibly a winter project, planning on using drop cloth as well.

Great job; I have two love seats that need me to make them new dresses!
