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.
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.
