Let your sofa slip into something more comfortable
Spring is the perfect time of year to begin making a new slipcover for your home. I get inspired to clean and change things up a bit in my home once the weather gets warmer and we start to hear more birds singing. My favorite ways to do this is to move the furniture around and change out some of the things in my home and add some new colors. Making a few new pillows and adding a slipcover to your furniture pieces can give you a whole new look.
This year our daughter Julie asked if I would help her spruce a love seat that the cats have enjoyed by making her a new slipcover. Of course, I can do that for you! She picked out a denim twill fabric from one of my favorite fabric vendors, Greenhouse Fabrics. (B6361 Indigo).
Pillows add a pop of color to brighten the room
Slipcovers are a great way to refresh a solid piece of furniture. Does your piece have great bones but maybe the fabric has seen better days? When you decide to slipcover be aware that this will not change the comfort of your piece. If your chair or sofa is solid and only the fabric is worn you have a good candidate for a slipcover. With a second baby on the way and a fresh new look Julie’s ready to decorate for spring. We’ve even added a few colorful pillows to complete the look to Julie’s new slipcover. (I’ve created a video tutorial so you can make one too)

Do you have a piece of furniture that is structurally sound, comfortable and fits your room but the color is wrong? If that is the case this new video tutorial I created can help you give your furniture a facelift.
