Remember these Wingback chairs from way back when? Here's just one of them. I bought them off of Craigslist a few years ago with the intention of reupholstering them someday. Well they intimidated me for long enough until one day I came across Miss Mustard Seed's ideas on slipcovers and she has a great tutorial on it too. I followed the videos step by step.
Until eventually I was finished! As she suggested, I used drop cloths for the fabric. Cheap and easy to work with.
The second one went much easier...
Probably because my confidence was higher. They're loose but that's okay. I like them comfy looking. The piping made this project a little more challenging but it was worth it to get more definition on the curves.
I ran a strip of sew-on Velcro down the back to keep them closed. I didn't care for the look of bows so this works just right for me - nice and clean. Also, I didn't bleach the drop cloth like I've seen suggested. I like the nubby, linen-look to them.
Oh, and the pillows were made with fabric from IKEA. Sadly our IKEA doesn't carry fabric any longer (that was short-lived). I followed Erin's hidden zipper pillowcase tutorial - a very nice tutorial as well.
