NEW LIFE FOR AN OLD WING CHAIR

 My client just moved into a cottage here in Coronado and decided her old furniture needed a new look.  She ordered this fabric from Ballard Designs, though I don't think you can get it anymore.
She has two Cairn terriers and they love to sit on the furniture.  Luckily, these covers are washable!  
I can't tell from this picture which dog, Princess Fiona or King Riley, is enjoying a chew toy and ignoring one of the new slipcovered chairs, but I was informed that as soon as I left, toys were abandoned and the dogs hopped up to make the new chairs their own.  

Slowly, but slowly the cottage is coming together.  There are still things for me to make and once they are completed and installed, of course I'll be sharing those pictures with you.

Love this fabric Tamerie, so unusual, and great to work with if you want to add a pillow of any colour.
