Your idea of "easing back in" is a slipcover? wow! It looks great and I love love love the little pillow. I have a thrifted wingback chair that needs a slipcover thanks to two scratching cats, but I'm scared to tackle that. And lazy.

Looks awesome sis!

Apparently I missed the post about baby #3! Exciting! I love the chair, it looks great.

@Lori: well, it really did need attention. And I thought it would be a quick and dirty project. (Which it was... Even though it took all weekend! Ha.) Lets see how long it is before I hem it. ;) xo

It looks great! Glad you had a productive weekend.


Looks great Chris! We have a chair with a seasonal pillow case (4 seasons and 3 holidays= 7). I couldn't imagine how much I'd love a chair. If you have the time, you should totally do it and I'll live vicariously through you. Please, please, do. I love the patten of the original linen, it would be beautiful in the fall. Too bad it didn't wear well. Good to know about fabrics and popular chairs. I have an ottoman to cover. Glad you're back : )

So pretty! I have a couch I'd love to slipcover.


t looks fantastic. I am impressed. I currently want to make some pillows for the chairs at our kitchen table. I am very much still in the thinking about camp.


Love it! And, yes your chair should most certainly have clothes. Because, well, why not?

I'm so glad you are out of the fog :) I loved seeing you last week!

I think it looks great!

And yes. Unfortunately I need to make a new slipcover for the world's longest couch. I've washed the first one so many times that it's starting to fray at the edges. Boo. I am NOT looking forward to it.


Awww, congrats on your pregnancy. I bet your house is teeming with girl power! : )
LOVE the chair and the slipcover, you did an awesome job! Very elegant. Keep the good stuff coming.


oh. my. goodness. I totally missed your announcement. Congratulations, you lovely thing! I'm so excited for you!!


way to go! now i want to get to my many slipcover projects (always). First up is a chair for my bedroom. It is my goal to get my bedroom finished by the fall...I MUST!!

Beki: you know I had you in mind when I asked that, didnt you??! I can only imagine what gorgeousness you have planned for your master. Ive got two more parsons chairs to cover... Not very exciting. xo


Gosh, I wish I could do this. I love the last picture so much! beautiful!

It looks great -- pretty close to perfect, I'd say! I don't have any slipcovers waiting, but I do have 9 dining chairs in need of new seat upholstery. I even have the fabric (but not the foam+batting). They've been waiting a loooong time.


go you! it looks fantastic!
i've got headboards to upholster and then bedskirts to make. those count as slip covers right? ;)


Great blog. Love the photos.


Great job on the recovering of the seat! Love how it turned out.
