Slipcovers – Before and Afters.


Slipcovers are a great alternative to changing up your furniture, instead of reupholstering it.  It also gives you the option of washing them, if you buy the right fabric.  But that is a discussion for another day.  In this post I just want to show you some before and after pictures of slipcovers.

Before

A barrel back chair, before and after. The shape of the Chair makes it a challenge, and the fabric was also a challenge but in the end you get a beautiful chair, that looks like it has been reupholstered.

After

 

Before

Another plain brown chair that the customer wanted more of a Shabby Chic look to and chose and beautiful floral fabric to start with.

After

Here is an older chair that is in a dated floral and tufting.

Before with tufting.

Lets update it with a newer, fresher fabric and no more tufting.

After

Now to Sofa Slipcovers!

Before

A sofa before in a red and yellow cording slipcover, customer wanted a more neutral look, in a white slipcover. At the time I took these pictures my camera wasn’t working right.(or I wasn’t working it right) so the pictures are a bit fuzzy, and then I decided to try to get artistic with the after photo.  So sorry about that!

After

Another example of a change-up!

Before

This job actually had two identical sofas in this lovely green fabric, but the client was changing up everything in the living room and went with a large black floral slipcover. Once again you have to really look at it to realize that it is a slipcover.

After

Before

This chair was again in a dated floral and had a gathered skirt. The customer wanted to change the look completely by getting a more elegant fabric and giving it a straight skirt with pleats at the corners.  The outcome is more up to date slipcover for a more elegant look.

After

So that is just a few of the examples of how you can change your old worn out or dated furniture into something new and fresh!
