Slipcovers are often a less expensive alternative to upholstery. They are a great way to give new life to an old, outdated piece of furniture. The great thing about slipcovers, unlike upholstered furniture, is that they can be removed and washed. You can also use slipcovers as a way to change your decor periodically, whether it be a different color for each of the seasons or a more formal style for a special occasion. Whatever your reason for purchasing a slipcover you can be assured that it will be tailor made to fit your piece of furniture perfectly.
Your furniture can be dropped off at our store front or, for your convenience, we can come to your home to create the slipcover. The additional charge for us to come to your home for a pin up is $125. The process usually takes about two hours.

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.
