Wood Arm Chair Slipcover

I am booked till me if you want on my list for January.

Lorraine has been my client for YEARS (probably 10 or 11 years)!  I have slipcovered numerous chairs, couches, ottomans, tables, lampshades (see the one in the corner below), etc. She is a huge fan of white. 

She brought me an antique arm chair with beautiful wood arms and legs. Somehow I forgot to take the before pic...oh's the AFTER!

AFTER---- LOVED it! She used a delicate white linen, so of course I had to line it. The underneath was a dark green color.

We decided to do ties on the back instead of velcro...just to add some more detail.

 Front of chair.

She has the most beautiful many antiques and collections!

 Front of arm detail...I continued the piping around the wood and then the skirt wrapped around and velcroed closed around the corner.

Over time, I have found it easier to do piping around the arm looks better too.

She also had me do this darling little bench. She's going to use it as a piano bench. I did do some ties that wrapped around the front legs under the skirt to help keep it in place more.

She had me use the same white linen as the wood arm chair.

Side Note-- I always take December off every year....I am piling up projects and things I want to get done that month.

You always do an amazing job. The arm holes for me seem to be my stalling point. I have a chair sitting in my kitchen that I just can not get started on for that very reason.
