Updating Store Bought Chair Covers

 Digging through bags of laces,
I came across two "store bought" chair slip covers.

They were pretty nondescript which is probably
Why they were pushed aside.

I was altering clothing that day and thought "why not?"

Using a pair of vintage valances, I ruffled the bottom of each
of the slipcovers...adding an eyelet ruffle from a pair of 
vintage curtains as well.



I love the custom look that only took an afternoon to complete,
and the fact I had all of the materials on hand.



I also love to recycle and repurpose....
it makes me feel good :)

Thanks for stopping by today..
You know I love it when you come.

I'm joining White Wednesday this week...

  1. Hi Jana,
    What a great idea, I love the shabby, romantic look you created by adding the ruffles.
