These items were for a designers client for their office. This client likes to get all his drop cloths from Sherwin Williams, they seem to be a little bit better quality than the Home Depot or Lowes drop cloths...less flaws and bare/ thin spots.
Here is the chair before...light blue plaid with a coordinating floral.
And here is the matching couch in the same floral.
Chair after in drop cloths with french welt.
On the top back of the chair...I decided to keep the original seams and "boxed" the top edge. I played with it and decided it looked better to keep the original lines.
Close up of "french welt" which is basically piping with out the cording inside. So it's a 2" strip of fabric folded in half and sewn in the seams. Then on the corners you have to "kiss pleat" the french welting so it'll bend around the corners.
Here is the couch AFTER. Love the cleaner look without the floral and plaid...much better for a man's office.

-- Side note... I am on the home stretch, we leave to camp at Carlsbad State beach in 2 1/2 weeks. I still have several items I am trying to finish and drop off before we leave. I am utilizing Heber (husband) for most of my drop offs. I still have a couch, 3 chairs, and two ottomans that I need to get done this week, and then I have 2 chairs, some cushions, and some bedskirts to finish the following week. Then I am going to be hanging out on the beach in Southern California for a week. Nothing like working hard before a trip!!!!
Oh did I mention...Heber has enlisted me to make a cover for our new air mattress. The last one we bought only lasted for two uses. So this time he spent alot more money hoping the higher quality will help (maybe if the kids don't jump on it...that might help too). I have some navy blue cable knit sweater looking fabric that's soft and stretchy...so I think I may use it for this project. I don't know when I am supposed to get it done though. Most likely the night before we leave.
