Over at one of my favourite blogs, http://purestylehome.blogspot.com/ Lauren posted today on transforming furniture pieces. She has so many wonderful transformations on her blog, she is a real inspiration. Above is an after photo of my mum's old dusty rose with its new slipcover.
And this is how it looked before. It used about 7 yards of white denim, and my upholsterer does wonderful slipcovers. Because I wanted it look look less formal (it is at the cottage) I asked him to make a short skirt with a little kick pleat at the knee.
Originally there were two of them, but we gave one away to the Salvation Army Shelter, not thinking we would use it. (kick).
