Dropcloth couch and chair

Here is another couch and chair...that I was so excited about, I forgot to take the before picture. So I'll describe them to you. The chair was a forest green, and the couch was a red/forrest green floral. My client had me redo them to use in her back yard for more seating for her daughter's wedding reception. Then they were going to be moved to her daughter new apartment as a wedding gift. I don't know about you but I would love a new set of slipcovers for my wedding gift.

She used painters dropcloths for the fabric....some people love this and other's don't. Some think the fabric is weaker in spots and you have to be ok with the random flaws.

close up of front of chair... I did a band along the front with piping at the top, so the fit stayed tight. I like to do it this way when you have a T cushion and no skirt.

They look great! Do you just buy the drop clothes at the hardware store?

Beautiful Shelly! So you have said a few times some people like the drop cloth look, others don't. What do you think? It is inexpensive yardage, that's for sure. Can't wait for the video!

this is absolutely beautiful!! I'm going to attempt to drop cloth my love seat this weekend. Although I'm not sure it'll turn out as gorge as yours!!
