I’m going to skip to the end….the moral of the story; I had more fun setting the table and playing with dishes than I did sewing up a dining room slip cover
skip down to see the pretty pictures, or you can read the blog.
(but there aren’t any good sewing instructions)
After Jerry built us a dining room table we realized we didn’t have chairs. We found a couple not so desirable oak chairs that I knew I could attempt to cover with a slip cover.
I saw a great idea, I’m sure on Pinterest, to buy an inexpensive painters drop cloth to sew the slip cover. If you try this out, a good cheat tip: place your pattern with the bottom of the slip cover skirt on the hemmed edge of the drop cloth!
Small, quick projects are my “specialty”. I tried to make a quilt once. I finished about 80% of the quilt top, realized it was off, and my Mom fixed it and finished it up for me. She is the patient quilter. One dining room slip cover does fall under my genre of projects; any more than one slip cover would be questionable. Luckily our decor is eclectic, and our dining room chairs are mis-matched. I finished up the dining room chair slip cover and was getting ready to snap a couple pictures. Yep, you can see by the pictures I had more fun setting a mix and match table full of vintage china, glassware, and flatware. I only took 2 pictures of the finished project.
I couldn’t resist snapping a couple fun pictures. The perfect title “the southern ladies social club lucheon”. The only gthing missing are the pretty vintage ashtrays at each place setting.
