I’m really not sure when the recycled treasures of slip-covered furniture came into vogue, but I’m super glad they did. I’ve been changing the way my house looks for literally decades with slipcovers. I seriously considered truly re-upholstering this little darling when I first acquired her. It would have been half the trouble I’m sure. In my house though, it’s just not practical. With grandkids and critters, it wouldn’t be two days until it looked just like it did when it showed up here.
Although a bit tattered and stained, it had such a darling little figure…just look at those wings. And, it’s a rocker! Jude barely got out of it long enough for me to do this project. Between fittings and seems….he would dive back into it and watch T.V.
I’m not putting the how’s and whys of slip-covering, although I do want to show y’all how to do that, this is NOT the project for teaching. If you’ve never done a slipcover, you won’t believe me, it always looks easier than it turns out with these little recycled treasures. Y’all give me your input, if you want to learn how to do them, let me know and we’ll do a few lessons.
I love the mixy matchy look, and naturally, red, was my go to….hmmm, go figure!
Do you like the miss matched look of two or three fabrics? I think I used six on this jewel
