This client just barely moved into her new home the week I came by to pick up her chair and ottoman. She's a designer and is really excited to start updating her new home. It's beautiful with hunter green beadboard and floral wallpaper! She wanted me to write a disclaimer....that she hasn't painted yet...so ignore the hunter green walls.
Her furniture was muslin covered and ready for slipcovers.
Here is the chair AFTER---white denim with a 1" pleat ruffle along the bottom edge. Ottoman---AFTER blue linen damask.

I installed the zipper on the back corner next to the piping. I also did a seam that tapered off the back of the arm.... I could have done a pleat there...but it was too big and bulky and didn't look right, so I decided to seam it.
Here is the whole room....remember to ignore the green paint! The ottoman was done in a linen damask. She wanted no piping on it. I lined the four side with duck cloth, to give it some stability...since the linen was pre washed and pretty fluid.
I can't wait to see what she does with the place! She invited me to come back once they have gotten some remodeling done.
Side note---it has been a BUSY summer....
Last month when we camped at Carlsbad State beach, we heard about the Mormon Battalion visitors center. We decided to take the kids there and check out their FREE tour. IT was AWESOME! I have some ancestors on my mom's side that marched with the Mormon Battalion.....so the kids thought that was pretty cool.
They take your family picture after the tour and email it to you.
After the tour...they have some hands on stuff for the kids to do...they got to pan for gold and take two pieces of gold home with them.
They got to pump water and wash clothes on a washboard, and they got to see how the pioneers made bricks. The kids had a BLAST! So if you are ever in San Diego, go check it out! It's #2 on trip advisor of things to do in the area.
SIDE NOTE #2-- A few weeks ago I ran in the top of zion relay down in Southern Utah.
Side note #3---Last weekend all my sisters and I got together in San Francisco for a sisters weekend. I'll post pics next time.
Side note #4--- Oh yes...and I am booked until the end of Septemeber....so if you want on my list email me.
