>Fit for a Queen!

>A pretty ugly thrift store chair is transformed into a slipcovered seat fit for a queen! I’m always in awe of talented seamstresses that complete projects like this…if it’s not a straight line then I can’t sew it – a pattern? Forget it! Lucky for us, La Maison Reid walks us step by step through the process of this ugly to chic project.

A thrift store find…

The finished project just begs to sit and relax in…I can just imagine enjoying some tea while watching the waves lap against the sandy shore…

Burlap buttons & piping add a special finishing touch

The finished chair with slipcover…tea anyone?

Like the burlap pillow? I sure do! Burlap is showing up all over home decorating items and lucky for us there is even a tutorial for making this adorable Paris pillow.

  3. >Wow…thanks for featuring my slipcover! I just found your blog by chance and was surprised to see my chair and pillow here! How did you find ME? I can't tell you how easy this chair really was to make and how scared I was to even try. I'm starting my second chair already!xoxoNancy

  4. >Unfortunately though..I don't face the sea. The view is amazing, nonetheless!xoxoNancy

  5. >@la Maison Reid – found you through a Linky Party…possibly The Inspired Room?…I go to so many that I can't recall LOL! Thought I left you a message on this post but have had some weird computer issues this week so who knows.Anyways, your view is astoundingly beautiful if it is doesn't face the sea – we can still imagine. I have a slipper chair that really needs a cover so MAYBE I'll give it a try…looks scary! LOL!

    >found you through New Friend Friday @ The Girl Creative. I love this chair! You did such an amazing job! Was it difficult? I have two chairs that need slip covers, but I've been a bit afraid to make one.
