My client had lots of items! 2 wing backs, 1 couch, 1 loveseat and 6 dining room chairs! We ordered some heavyweight white linen from Ulster Linen Company for about $28/yd….this stuff is BEAUTIFUL and heavy weight!!!
Wingbacks--BEFORE--worn teal velvet. All of this furniture was from her childhood growing up!
LOVESEAT--BEFORE--The linen was really heavy, but it still had a hard time covering up those dark flowers. I made a separate undergarment (like a slip) out of muslin for more coverage. Just a quick slipcover out of muslin with no piping and a simple hem--super fast.
DINING CHAIRS---BEFORE--Cruel covered seats that were getting worn. We actually just used a basic white twill cotton on these and self lined them. I thought the linen would be too heavy and the skirts wouldn't hang right.
AFTER--love the white contrast with all the dark wood!
AFTER--lots of velcro openings on these chairs to make them work with the wood coming down the center back.
AFTER--used same cotton twill for the knife pleat edge instead of the heavy linen.
COUCH--AFTER--apparently I got too excited to put the new slipcover on I forgot to take a before pic!
Tie opening on back and knife pleat edge.
Finials came off--so I slipcovered like normal and sewed a button hole, so the finial could screw in after the slipcover was installed.
