Yes, I've been dreaming of slipcovers...
for my dining room chairs to be exact, and I mentioned a few weeks ago I had made a decision once I saw these slips made up at my friend Debra's store, Inspirational Home.
There is a lot of inspiration out here, and I just found these beauties on Pinterest. I even tried my hand at making some a couple of years ago, but they didn't satisfy my need for something soft, linen-y and beautiful. So...I've been waiting to find the right ones. The alternative was to paint my Dining Room furniture, and I just never really wanted to do it. If I could wave a magic wand and have it done...then OK. But I never could "get there" if you know what I mean.
So today one of my chairs is in the very capable hands of a local seamstress who is known for her expertise and quality workmanship. I'm excited...beyond excited...
Soon these babies will be wearing new little custom made dresses!
If you're local you can contact Debra at Inspirational Home here in Springfield. She has several beautiful linen fabrics you can choose from, or you can use your own fabric. I was able to "design" my own slips as my girls will be showing off just a little "leg" under a deep ruffle and a custom fitted back. I'm looking to break up all the dark furniture and lighten up the space even more. (did I mention that I can't wait?)
