I wasn’t able to get my post up yesterday, because I was shooting a local home in Rochester. It was such a fun day! I love photoshoots, styling, tweaking, etc. Anyway, today I’m going to share about a slipcover I made for my studio desk chair. Remember this desk chair that I got a couple of years ago when I rearranged the furniture in my studio and office to make both spaces more functional?
I moved this chair into my studio when Jeff was working out of my office during the stay-at-home orders and I liked it in there. It’s a pretty comfortable chair and the small scale suited the antique teacher’s desk I use as a work surface in the studio. I just wanted to customize it a little bit and while I was playing with fabrics to make a slipcover for my office chair (you can find that post HERE), I decided to make a slipcover for the studio chair, too.
I made it out of an antique embroidered curtain panel that I’ve had in my stash for years and it turned out so sweet!
I followed the same method I share in THIS slipcover tutorial.
Of course, it’s the embroidery that really makes this slipcover special…
The back of the chair is my favorite part, though! I had enough fabric that I was able to really show off the embroidered panel on the front and back.
My mom helped by cutting, ironing, and pinning all of the ties while I worked on pinning and sewing the slipcover.
I finished off the bottom of the slipcover with a little ruffled skirt.
So, the one last thing I might do is paint the legs since they look a little dark and heavy in comparison to the feminine slipcover. It’s much more noticeable in photos than it is in person, though. So, we’ll see! Until then, I have bigger projects to finish up like painting the bathroom cabinets…
