BEFORE AND AFTER -- WHAT A DIFFERENCE!

BEFORE
This is a leather slipper chair.  I normally NEVER do slipcovers on leather because they are truly SLIP covers.  It is especially bad if there is no loose bottom cushion to help keep it in place.  In this case, I was talked into doing it anyway.

This sofa should probably has been tossed, but my client really liked it - it was comfortable - so I made her the slipcover.

Once again, it is easy to see how slipcovers can transform your existing furniture.  I tell people all the time that is just doesn't matter how ugly that chair you picked up at the thrift store or found in the alley is.  As long as the piece is well-made and sound, it is slipcover-able.
