Slipcover Makeover for this Craigslist Find
I think this project is THE slipcover makeover of the summer! What a transformation!
My customer found this big, comfy Henredon sofa on Craigslist complete with thick quilted floral upholstery. There was no doubt in her mind that a washable, white denim slipcover would give it the style boost it needed to fit right in with her other white slipcovered furniture and vintage eclectic decor.
For this custom cover, I used 12 oz white cotton bull denim from Big Duck Canvas and trimmed it with navy bull denim. Both fabrics were factory seconds but you’d never know it — very good quality and no major flaws.
I changed the outdated kiss-pleat design on the back cushions to a narrow boxing and updated the skirt with 8″ wide box pleats all the way around. It’s those little details that make all the difference.
Tip: if you want to use a dark color welt trim on your light color slipcover be sure to test it first for crocking and bleeding.
gorgeous, Karen!!! Love it.
Thanks, Christina! Would look great next to ticking….right?
