I love making slipcovers out of something unexpected. A little while back we made one out of a drop cloth and now, most recently, we have made one from a coverlet. This small little slipper chair was bland, just basic white cotton fabric upholstery. My mom and I created this custom slipcover out of a […]
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 […]

Alchemy fine living is a creative business. My mom and I offer furniture painting services, simple upholstery, and custom slipcovers.
We have been painting furniture for clients for over a decade now. The two of us have been sewing our whole lives. We've sewn things like prom dresses and bathing suits, but back in 2008 we decided to focus our seamstress abilities on home decorative items; specifically custom made slipcovers.
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 offer furniture painting, upholstery, and sewing services.
