~So Easy Slipcover ~


I wanted to make a slipcover for this French chair so the wood trim would show.
I used tissue paper to make a pattern,
cut out the duck fabric, and started sewing.
  A tuck here and there and the slipcover fit.

Chair Slipcover

I used Velcro to connect the arm sleeves and made support straps 
out of the fabric to hold the slipcover in place.

Remember to pre-wash the fabric before sewing.

Now the room is looking lighter with the light color slipcover!!!

~ Annie Sloan Pure White Dresser ~


I'm so excited to be updating the master bedroom.  
I completed Mr. Sweetie's dresser this afternoon in 
Annie Sloan's new color Pure White.

Chalk Paint™ Painted Dresser

I love the Pure White on this dresser.  
Just two coats of paint and a thin coat of clear wax.  So easy and fast!!!

I decided to leave the hardware alone...just took it off during painting.  
The key holes I painted and sanded when dry.

My dresser that I painted in Louis Blue and Old White
needed something spiffy on the drawers
.  

I stenciled an agapanthis leaf arch and crown with gold Gilding Wax.  
I just love the look!!!

I'm painting two wood frame French chairs with beautiful gold velvet fabric.  
My Mom gave me these chairs and I love the fabric but want to 
Frenchy the wood with Old White and clear wax.
I will do a tutorial soon on how to paint around fabric without ruining it.
