The following is some pillows and pad that I dropped off a few weeks ago---I loved all these colors together, my client did a great job picking out fabrics!

My client had this little hide a bed loveseat at the end of her bed, that her grandchildren use when they sleep over. It had a light blue linen slipcover on it that had been loved to pieces... literally. The arms were shredded.
Loveseat--AFTER -- her daughter in law helped her pick out this great green lattice print. It was an outdoor fabric, but it washed up beautifully.
It all worked out...and then on top of that I had to match up the arm pads too.
Since it is a hide a bed that gets used often, she wanted easy access--- I installed two zippers head to head at the back of the decking, so all she has to do is unzip to access the bed.
The tricky part was because the love seat had T cushions the zipper had to wrap around the front of the arm, so the bed wouldn't rip the slipcover when taking it out.
Side Note---#1 Trying to wrap it up for the year, I have two more drop offs and then I am done!
Side Note--#2 We are making progress on our new project. We are converting our garage to my new work studio and building a new detached garage.
Here's the AFTER demo---got the fence, concrete, basketball hoop, and tree removed. Concrete and footings are being poured tomorrow!
Of course I had to start doing some shopping for my new space! I picked up this large hutch off KSL.com for $175. This is the picture from the listing---it's way prettier in person! Tons of storage for zippers, thread, and fabric! It's 7 feet tall and 6 ft wide.

I have to admit, I lost sleep over these 16 dining chairs with separate seats and backs. I was trying to figure out how to go around the back post and velcro the skirt closed and make it look good.
The chairs underneath are gray leather with large nail head trim with no skirt. The client felt like the dining room was cold and wanted to add some fabric with a skirt to the floor.
Here is the drawing my designer client drew up for me to show me what he wanted.

First off--- I am offering a Black Friday 20% off promo code for my "Pillow Talk" Ebook and "How to Slipcover DVD" on my Facebook Page...so head on over and "like" my page to see promo code.
My client chose this great heavy weight red basket weave fabric. It was literally like a blanket...super thick. Luckily she didn't want a skirt. I don't think I could have done one with this fabric.
Chair--BEFORE--- muslin covered and ready for a slipcover.
Front of chair--- I made the front part under the cushion extend over to the outside arm, so the front panel would look cleaner.
SIDE NOTE---- My sister just finished putting together my Christmas card. My youngest lost his tooth the day before we took pics!

My client wanted to switch it up...and get slipcovers made for her dining room. She chose this great fabric with fall colors.
Chair--AFTER---I piped out the arms and inside arms. Tuck in around the seat, and matched up the band on the front.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU ALL!!!
Side Note---- Demo of our fence and large willow tree has begun and our new garage is going to be built next month. Then we will start on converting our old garage to my new "work studio"!
Here is my inspiration pic of how we may fill in our garage door for the work studio, except there will be 5 sections and two of them will open up...so I can move furniture in and out.
