Shabby Chic chair

Before...old and dated, but very cute lines

After...I loved the soft floral of this fabric, it went well with the lines of the chair. My client loved the transformation and so did I. I love being able to take something old and dated and turn it into the focal piece of the room.

white on white chair

Before... I have done this chair 3 times now for this client.

After... She used quilts for the cushions, white linen for the mini ruffle on the cushions, white jaquard for the arms and skirt, and white denim for the rest. I loved the way it turned out.

We made the pillow out of a dish towel from anthropologie.

Old pink wingback

So I took a chair and ottoman slipcover back to this client and she loved it so much, she excused herself and showed back up hauling this old pink beauty up from her basement by herself and sent me on my way with it. The blue toile fabric covered the tufting perfectly and we added a 2.5" pleat ruffle on the bottom to match some pleat ruffle pillows we did for the couch.


love the pleat ruffle

My New Pillows for My Front Room

most of these fabrics I already had and I pieced them together. I did find the mini zebra print that I absolutely love. I was short on my white linen, so I used white linen napkins on the back of several pillows.
I was able to reuse my pillows that have a letter embroidered on them. I also bought a new green throw blanket, which came with a piece of ribbon tied around it, so I used the ribbon on some of the pillows too. I love when I can use what I have and turn it into something fabulous.

Green Velvet Arm Chair

Before... which I loved and didn't think I'd be able to make that great of an improvement, since I already loved it; but my client really wanted something she could take off and wash, so the original wouldn't get ruined.

After... my client chose this darling turquoise damask fabric, which turned out to be such a great contrast against the dark wood. We did a little one inch pleat ruffle along the bottom, so the legs wouldn't get covered up. There are velcro openings on the back under the arms, so the slipcover can come off. I loved the after on this one!!!

Plain white chairs



Here is a set of plain white chairs that my client chose a darling red floral to recover them in. They completely changed the look of the room.
