did i really just make a slipcover???

i'm beyond thrilled with myself for finally finishing such a big project. 

it really wasn't as hard as i had imagined and turned out better than i ever hoped for!!

i will say that it isn't 100% complete....i still have to attach the cushion fasteners.  

drumroll please....


isn't the ruffle fabulous?  i am in love with that part of it!!


this arm turned out better than the other arm...


see?  it's a little loose and not quite as tight as the other side.  :-(


this is the view from the entry to the living room, which comes from the kitchen, where you enter my house.  it's a bad layout!


and here is a shot with the table too.  it's in desperate need for a repaint, so that's on my list right after i finish slipcovering the loveseat!!!  oh, you didn't know i still had a loveseat to do did you?  yeah, well, i have two cushions done, so i'm on my way.  i'll post a whole living room shoot after i finish that. 
i'm just on the lookout for a really cute throw and some pillows.  i can't decide whether or not i want colorful pillows or burlap and lace....such hard decisions.  for now she sits bare...


have a great mother's day weekend!!

Finally! Geeesh. In all seriousness, it looks really good, and you make me want to learn to sew every time I see something you've done. Maybe this year is the year for me to learn. :)

It turned out beautifully! I like your colors! The burlap would add some neat texture, wouldn't it!

I know the ruffle is better than mine but seriously you don't need to brag about it :) it looks nice. Honestly I don't know which would be better either, color or burlap. So many options !?
