I love to sew and have been sewing since I was 7 years old, making clothes, curtains, pillows, you name it I like sewing it. Well maybe one thing I don’t like to sew is slipcovers, can you say never ever ever again. While they turned out great, it’s just such a tedious process making the exact fitting pattern and crossing your fingers once you’re done hoping it all works and hoping you didn’t waste money on fabric. I will so be paying someone next time to do this.
I bought the matching chairs for 10.00, the fabric was very dirty and stained but structurally they were good. I steam cleaned the old fabric just so I could feel like they were somewhat clean underneath.
I painted and distressed the wood and used fabric that had a linen look to it, I think I paid around 2.50 a yard at Wal-Mart. So for under 25.00 bucks I have 2 cute Shabby Chic looking matching chairs.
