I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before! I use drop cloths all the time for the furniture painting aspect of my business, but never sewed on it or upholstered with it. It is super durable, dirt cheap, and really cool fabric. A 12′ x 15′ drop cloth only runs $31. I used about half of one to create the slipcover for this adorable chair, which leaves plenty for pillows and possibly another small chair. What a deal!
This particular chair is going in my own home, but my mom and I are always up for custom work. If you have a chair that you would like re-upholstered, whether it be covered in a drop cloth or another fabric of your choice, stop by the store anytime. We are located in Santa Ana and busy sewing away on most days.

My mom is a DIY kind of gal. When I was a kid I remember trips to thrift stores, strolling the hardware store isles, and of course spending hours feeling fabric at the yardage shop. She was constantly transforming bargain buys into treasures for our home. With a fresh coat of paint or a new slipcover, she gave old furniture new life. We have always enjoyed being creative together and in 2008 we turned our hobby and passion into a business.
Alchemy fine living is a creative business. We offer furniture painting services, upholstery, and custom slipcovers. We also sell a few hand crafted items on Etsy.
I'm Deana, the author of this blog. My mom, Connie, taught me from a young age how to spot a deal at a flea market or a thrift shop. She could always spot the hidden potential of an old, worn out piece of furniture. I learned to sew when I was four years old and all through the years I helped my mom with DIY projects around the house.
In 2008 she & I turned our hobby into a business. We re-do old furniture and hand craft items for sale in our Etsy store. For those who, like us, love to DIY we offer lots of tips and advice in our tutorial videos. We also offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services for those who don't want to tackle the project themselves.
