Last Weeks Projects and Today’s Snow!

As I sit here on this very snowy Sunday, watching snow come down and pile up I am thinking about the list of projects I have to do and also the things I completed this week.



Earlier this week I installed a cornice in a Kitchen, the one I demonstrated on the last blog. The customer was happy how it turned out. It was designed by JCR Design Group.

Then for the rest of the week I worked on slipcovers for 2 chairs and a banquette settee. The customer chose an off white, canvas like fabric that she purchased and washed and dried before she gave it to me. The chairs and settee were just a basic style in a neutral fabric. I only took one before picture of the chair.

I worked on the settee first and then completed the chairs. I pretty much followed the lines of the original piece. The other factor in these pieces, was that there was very little tuck in room, especially the settee. The back of it had about a 1/2″ tuck area and none down the wing area.

Slipcovered Settee

The settee did not have legs, the customer was going to put them on after I delivered, so had to use the kitchen chairs to hold it up!

And now for the Snow!

    Great job, as usual, on the cornice and slipcovers. We have a lot of snow up here, but not as much as you! It is hard to believe that it is spring!
