Chair for "How to Video"

So last night I taped my "How to Slipcover" Video and demonstrated this oversized chair. I decided to use up the last of my heavy weight white linen that I had on hand and threw on two throw pillows that are a mustard yellow polka dot with a 1" linen pleat ruffle. It turned out really good. It will take about three weeks to edit the video... can't wait to see it.

This chair also has a second slipcover that I made awhile ago that's a tan/khaki brushed twill with the same straight pleat skirt as the white linen cover.

I decided I am going to let this chair go to help pay for the video. So if any of you are interested let me know (email or call me). I am selling it for $300. That includes the chair, two slipcovers (white linen and tan twill), and 2 polka dot throw pillows that have down forms in them. The skirt is lined and the cushion and pillows have zipper openings.

Oh and the chair is super comfy...definitely oversized. It fits me and one of my little boys.

"How to Slipcover Video"

So I am playing around with the idea of making a "How to Slipcover Video" that I can market and sell from my blog. I have gotten lots of emails with questions about slipcovering and people asking if I teach classes. I talked to a videographer today about the idea and am starting to formulate it all and may even start taping next week.

I am excited and nervous all at the same time, trying to figure out how to show everything I want to show. I think I may have to do separate videos for wingbacks and pillows. I am excited to show my methods, time saving tips and tricks, and everything I have learned through trial and error over the past 12 years.
