Merry Christmas!!!

Yay!! Christmas is only a day and a half away and I am finally ready! I have been super busy trying to finish up half of my clients for the month before Christmas and I think I pulled off a Christmas Miracle! In the last 3 weeks I have slip covered 5 chairs, 1 couch 17 pillows, 1 ottoman and reupholstered a chair and ottoman combo.... Whew. After Christmas I swore I would take it off, but guess what....thats not gonna happen. I have to slipcover a chair and ottoman combo, 4 couch cushions and make baby bedding with coordinating curtain panels, pillows and a bench seat cushion and curtains and pillows for a toddler room. So please pray for me! Now get ready for some before and afters overload...

First up...Debbie. Oh how I love Debbie! We redid her front room in a more country feel, which is extremely appropriate. She live on 12 acres in the country! We also made a ton of pillows, but this is actually half of ehat she had originally. Her husband is happy about that. She used a ton of pillows to cover up the fabric on the sofa. i could not take them all away, that would just be rude... we also covered her ottoman in the family room with drop cloth as well as 4 other pillows. she is planning on stenciling them. Once she finished she will send pics!

Here are the chairs we did as well and the rest of her goodies..

Next up is Kathy, she brought me this chair that has been tortured with horrible slipcovers! We chucked them and started from scratch. She chose a green gingham fabric. So much better.
Before: Stripped to the bones...


Third....Carolee. She is in my ward and to be of my favorite people! She had 2 dining chairs that she wanted to get slip covered before her family came to town for Christmas. I was able to squeeze her in last minute. they turned out so stinking cute! she bought a great oatmeal linen to use. First of all, i was in love with the detergent she used, and second, i wanted to keep them for myself...

after: Michelle. Love her! She found a pair of super aweful chairs on ksl. I mean we are talking FUGLY! the upside was they each had some good qualities going for them. they each had an ottoman...and one had super awesome legs! She called me up to get my opinion and before I knew it they were at my house! now one of the sets i had to reupholser. She loved the idea of the button tufting, just not in its current state.... We did a solid white for the body of the chair and ottoman and a fun contrasting fabric for the cushion, buttons and piping. I really did not think i was gonna pull it off before christmas, but alas! It was a christmas miracle! she picked it up yesterday and loved it! I will work on the other chair after christmas, which will have another fun and funky flair to it.


Now that you are up to speed, i am goona enjoy the weekend with my family! Merry Christmas and i hope you were good this year so santa brings you just what you wanted....


  1. I have a wing chair that I need a slipcover for and the orginal fabric is similar to the fabric you did on much does it cost for a slip cover for a wing chair?

    1. a wingback close to the size of the ones in my post are $185 a chair and we used about 9 yards of home decor fabric. Let me know if you have any questions. I am happy to help!
