I love it when a plan comes together ! I’ve been working on the living room all week, mostly the wainscoting, but one of the other pieces I also wanted to makeover was my brown velvet settee. I love the shape of this piece – it fits on the wall next to the fireplace to perfection, but I was sooooooo done with the dark brown color. Rather than pay big bucks to have it reupholstered, I decided, for now, to simply slipcover it.
I’ve mentioned before that my sewing skills are limited, but over time, I’ve been challenging myself to take on more intermediate sewing projects – this was certainly one of them. I confess, I’ve admired the slipcovers across blogland for a long time, but this is my first attempt at slipcovering a piece of furniture myself. After four days of piecing it together, bit by bit, I’m pretty satisfied with my new summer linen slipcover.
Lovely readers, meet my little settee and her pretty new linen slipcover.
