This custom made slipcover was created for a client who lives in Huntington Beach. She wanted a simple and cozy slipcover for this comfortable slipper chair that sits in her master bedroom. She stopped by the store about two weeks ago with samples of some of the fabrics in her room, including the towels from the master bathroom and photos of her new headboard. We spent some time with her browsing our fabric sample books and came across this heavy weight cotton blend that she just loved. The color was perfect and the texture was just right.
We ordered the fabric from Carole Fabrics and to our surprise it arrived only a few days latter. Usually fabrics take about a week to arrive. As soon as the fabric arrived my mom was very excited to get started creating this snug slipcover that fits perfectly. I love the simple skirt. It has just the right amount of soft ruffles at each corner.

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.

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 boutique. 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.
