My client picked up these two chairs and ottomans for $25/pair. They were from a Marriott Hotel that was replacing their furniture. WHAT A DEAL!!! She chose a white duck cloth to freshen them up.
We also did 2 arm chairs and 4 side dining chairs. These required some thought… she sent me an inspiration pic, so I knew it was possible, I just had to figure out how to get a skirt on the back with the wood piece down the center of the chair.
AFTER--SIDE CHAIR--my solution was to run the piping on the outside of the posts, attach skirt to piping. Then use velcro to attach the sections to either side of the vertical wood piece.
SIDE NOTE-- Brainstorming some new ideas. I am located in Utah.
1) 2 day workshop--- day1- slipcover main body of a chair
day2- skirt, cushion, and pillow. 4-6 students/session
2) Job shadowing- come to work with me at my studio for 3 days (slipcovering, appts out, photography, blog, quickbooks, etc) 2-3 students/ session. This would be geared towards someone that has already started or wants to start a slipcover business.
3) Skype mentoring--sign up for the day you have a similar item and follow along in real time.
Tell me your thoughts! What interests you the most, and what would you seriously consider signing up for?
