BEACH COTTAGE MAKE-OVER

This sad, seen-better-days-sofa got a new outfit!
What a difference! Okay, so it's kind of boring, or at least it is not as festive or as colorful as before, but even I have to say that it looks infinitely better. In fact, it doesn't even look like the same sofa.
As many slipcovers as I have made (100's, maybe even 1000!) I am still amazed at the transformation that takes place. Slipcovers are the best way I know to completely change the look of a piece of furniture and the room it is in.

Hi Tamerie... that is so pretty! You are right, I would never have even guessed it was the same sofa! xoxo Julie Marie

Great transformation! I wish there were slipcovers for people as we get older!!

it does look infinitely better - but were there also new cushions for the piece? The "before" photo shows some pretty over-the-hill seat cushions! I don't think even your marvelous slipcovers can fix that, can it? LOL

I agree....what a huge difference and so much nicer looking. Great job, Tamerie!

I had to giggle at Janet's comment ~ lol
