Slipcovered Host and Hostess chairs

First off- if you have been eyeing my "How to Slipcover" DVD, I am offering a $10 off Promo code on my Facebook Page. Making it $38.50 with shipping.

I am also offering a bundle price for my DVD and "Pillow Talk" ebook...which you can apply the promo code to as well...making them both $48.50 with shipping (saves you $20).

Lorraine had me do these chairs about a year ago, but my after photos were not so good because of the lighting--So when I dropped off her white arm chair a few weeks ago, I took new photos.

Chair--- BEFORE

Lorraine's inspiration photo she pulled out of a magazine/ book (not sure which one)

Lorraine's Chair--AFTER--- tan ticking stripe fabric, with 2" ruffle

 Front view

 FYI--- I just saw this fabric at my local "Home Fabrics" store on 7200 s. in SLC, UT. It's beautiful, the tan is a tiny herringbone tone on tone texture and after it's washed up it feels like heavy weight linen and drapes beautiful.

Side Note---
Many people know my sister and I are a bit of Christmas scrooges. SO this year we decided to skip the gifts and rent a beach house in Southern California instead. The kids are on board and my dream is coming true!

 Can't wait to hang out with them for a full week with no distractions (work, email, phone calls, etc). We are planning on using the hot tub, playing in the sand (even if we are wearing sweaters), bike rides, Christmas movies, etc.

I am all about trips and would rather make memories than give my boys another remote control car that they break in two days (true story--last year). They never remember what we gave them the year before...but they will always remember our trip to the beach house with the cousins.

I wanted to comment on your Christmas plans. I'm jealous. I too am a bit of a Scrooge at Christmas. People, and by that I mean my kids, forget the reason for the season. I would love to meet up with family in the mountains and just have family time. That would be my ideal Christmas. I hope your families have a wonderful time. I'll be thinking of you when I am up to my eyeballs in wrapping paper and gift boxes.

You are soooo talented! I loved scouring your blog for ideas. ANd I love how you mix in stuff about your family. You and your family did SUCH a great job on the cabin too. I love the idea of getting a fixer upper cabin for the family to all work together on! I'm so glad to reconnect w/ you. My blog is just family stuff, I hope to run into you again.

I'm here b/c that chair was pinned by somebody. I couldn't believe when I saw the photo on your blog out of the magazine...I've hung onto that pic guys really nailed it!
I wish I knew what the name of the fabric is. Love it, love it!
