Andrea’s old chaise slipcover had all the classic signs of a well-loved piece: thread bare, faded, pulled seams and baggy cushion covers
In spite of its worn-out condition, her slipcover made a good template to copy. To improve the fit, I loosened up the body and took out the excess from the cushion covers.
For this slipcover copy, I used 12 oz. Taupe Cotton Bull Denim from Big Duck Canvas. Taupe is one of their new colors, which is a chalky grey-cast neutral. Very pretty!
Slipcover your furniture in a neutral color and let the decorating begin!
I especially like using white, natural, grey or khaki for large pieces. These classic shades make an endlessly versatile backdrop. My customer, Kathy, had the same idea when she chose 12 oz. khaki denim for her sleeper sofa slipcover.
Now, she can layer her choice of accent colors throughout the living room without having to start over with an entirely new slipcover every time she wants to change out her decor.
Check out Kathy’s accent slipcovers I made to coordinate with her khaki sofa: indigo denim chair and awning stripe chair.
Are you thinking of updating an old chair for a new space?
My customer did just that with indigo denim slipcovers for her Lake Michigan cottage.
I used a 14 oz. yarn-dyed washed denim. This durable cotton cloth is family and pet friendly and offers smooth coverage over textured upholstery. Great for everyday slipcovers.
To give this slipcover the best fit and function possible I inserted a placket zipper in the back for easy on and off. I also detached the back cushion, added new poly cluster fill and made a removable cover.
Some furniture pieces, no matter how old and worn, are too sentimental to throw out.
My customer’s comfy little rocker has been a family favorite ever since her kids were young. It’s definitely a keeper!
Still in great shape after years of use, this sweet chair only needed an updated look with a custom fit slipcover.
Fabric: 100% cotton 12 oz. natural bull denim from Big Duck Canvas.
White denim brightens up a room any time of the year. It’s also one of the most versatile fabrics you’ll find for slipcovers. From casual cottage to contemporary chic, it suits any style of furniture and decor.
For this custom fit slipcover, I used washed 12 oz. white bull denim from Big Duck Canvas. I tailored the fit to follow the sleek lines of the sofa. Such a pretty contrast with the rustic flooring and distressed rug. Beautiful!
