I am on a serious mission to complete my dining room. And, today I am one step closer!
New slipcovers are finally in da house!!
You may recall that the chairs originally looked like this...
They are Ethan Allen, and I found them at a consignment shop. I always intended to have slipcovers made. It just took me awhile.
The fabric is 100% cotton (Diversitex Prairie) from fabric.com.
Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home wrote a great post about slipcovers HERE. I've referred to it several times.
I took Mary Ann's advice and pre-washed the fabric to prevent shrinkage. Let me tell you... washing 11 yards of fabric is no easy feat. Mary Ann's workroom does it for her. Mine did not.
I ended up sweet-talking a local dry cleaner into washing it in an industrial sized washer for me. When I picked it up, he was none-too-happy that he only quoted me $20. Oops! :)
I'm so thankful to be able to cross this off the to-do list. My window treatments are being made now, so hopefully, the final reveal will happen soon! Stay tuned...
