Linen Sofa Slipcover Makeover

Old Sofa Before Linen Slipcover

A custom linen slipcover did wonders for Annette’s faded and outdated sleeper sofa.  What a transformation!

Linen Sofa Slipcover by Karen PowellWe used heavy weight, Home Furnishing Linen in oatmeal (an undyed, natural flax color) from Gray Line Linen.  It’s my favorite linen for causal slipcovers with a French Country look.  It has a such a lovely crumple and drape after washed. Fabric update August 2016 — the quality of this 100% linen is not what it use to be. I’ve removed it from my favorites list. 

I detached the back cushions and boxed them.  An instant update!  I also raised the skirt a bit and made the front arm pieces flat.  It’s amazing how just a few small style changes can make an old sofa look brand new.

    Thanks Holly! After I installed the slipcover my customer and I just stood and stared at it. Haha! We couldn’t believe it was the same sofa!
