I also want to let you know that I'm excited and honored to be featured today at Julia's fantastic Hooked on Houses. You really don't want to miss her site, but beware: one look and you will be hooked for sure.
Now, some of you may remember this project in the works from a few posts back:
My new little green chair was in need of a slipcover to make it fit in to the decor better, and I'm proud to say I actually finished it! Hurray and thank goodness just in time, because I was getting close to pulling my hair out!
This was not the easiest shape to choose for my first ever slipcover. All those curves and the rolled arms had me scratching my head and pulling out threads more times than I care to admit!.
I did get some helpful hints from out there in the blogging world, and I appreciate the pointers and the comments from you my blogger friends! But still, I trust you not to look too closely. There are a few trouble spots, but I've redone them so many times I don't think they're going to get any better.
So I'm just going to call it a day and say this project is done.
I think the whole thing turned out pretty well considering
I didn't have a clue what I was getting myself into!
When I found myself in a jam I just took a deep breath and carried on. That seemed to work, because I didn't get too rattled over all my mistakes, like I usually do.
The fabric drop cloths were easy to work with,
and for $9.00 you can't beat the price!
In a house full of people, a spoiled dog and two cats, a cover that's easy to take off
and wash with bleach is the best kind.
I figure I can't go wrong with fabric that is supposed to absorb paint!
So, now I can cross this project off my to-do list. That feels so good!
I'm going to make a few pillows with the left over material, and then get started on some painting.
Every time I cross one thing off the list, I always seem to add two more!
Do you do that too?
Thanks for visiting, and hey, let me know you were here! Until next time,
Stop by for a visit at Cindy's Romantic Home.

And a big thank you to Julia, at Hooked on Houses!
