Slipcover Denim: Beyond White and Natural

Do you love the look of denim slipcovers but want more color than white or natural? You’re in luck! Cotton bull denim and yarn dyed denim fabrics are showing up in all kinds of colors — from earthy neutrals to saturated brights to classic blues. Here are a few colorful denim slipcovers to spark ideas for your next project.

Arhaus Baldwin Cotton Denim Custom Slipcover

This cotton bull denim in color Mist¬†is a chalky aqua color. You have to see it in person — it’s soooo pretty. I’ve been drooling over it ever since I made a slipcover copy for this Arhaus Baldwin chair.

Burlap Brown Custom Denim Slipcover

Denim fabrics in warm shades of brown, earth and mushroom are versatile neutrals. A good option when you want to hide dirt and pet hair. I made this slipcover with 14 oz cotton yarn denim in Burlap Brown.

Classic Indigo Denim Love Seat Slipcover

Classic indigo denim never goes out of style. I used heavy weight, medium shade indigo yarn dyed denim for this project.  This darker shade looks great, too. Washes, wears and fades beautifully just like a pair of old school Levis.

Grey is another versatile color that looks fantastic in cotton denim slipcovers no matter the style. Like any color, grey hues vary greatly. Right now Big Duck Canvas stocks several shades from light grey to charcoal.

 

Chaise Slipcover Copy in Taupe Denim

Worn and Faded Chaise SlipcoverAndrea’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 Makeover with Indigo Ikat

Indigo Ikat Chair Slipcover by Karen PowellIndigo ikat fabrics make the most beautiful slipcovers. I’m crazy about about the inky blue ethnic patterns, the authentic woven designs as well as¬†the¬†printed versions.

For this chair¬†makeover my customer chose¬†Magnolia Home Fashions Java Ikat Navy.¬†It’s a¬†cotton decorator fabric of¬†medium weight yet it’s substantial enough¬†to cover the thick, textured upholstery.¬†Don’t worry about the dry clean only¬†label. You can¬†machine wash and dry it¬†without any problem. Nice!Magnolia Java Ikat Slipcover by Karen Powell
