Jen’s outdated plush brocade slipcover is a thing of the past. Now, her sectional has an entirely new look with a Khaki denim slipcover. Looking fabulous especially with her pretty mix of patterned and textured accessories. Even her protective doggie blankets fit right in!
This project was a slipcover replacement. Jen sent me her old covers to copy and update. I changed the gathered skirt to a tailored style for cleaner lines.
This was a fun project for a customer in Northern California. Thomas requested replacement slipcovers for his armchair, ottoman and a couple of big, beautiful speakers.
I copied his worn out slipcovers in 12 oz. washable white cotton denim. For the speakers, I deconstructed one of the black dust covers and used it as a template to create protective covers in the same white denim.
Nothing like a few new slipcovers to make a living space feel refreshed. Looking good, Thomas!
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.
