Easy-Peasey Chair Make-over!

A good friend of mine GAVE me these chairs. They are feather/down filled, in excellent condition and so comfy! However, they are very 1970's Palm Beach in decor. One day I will probably fork out the cashola to have them reupholstered, but for now, I need something quick and cheap. I found these really cute slipcovers at a CSN store for about $35 each, and ta-da! New chairs. Even though they're in the man cave (sports, tv, media, dude) room, I think they are really cute! lol.

NOT MY TASTE, but they were free-ninety-free!

Miss Ivy wanted to show you just how comfy they are!

The after shot! I LOVE THEM!

Miss Ivy is not allowed on the new slipcovers, so she decided to chew her bone instead.

The bows add a touch of girly to the testosterone zone. :)


  1. Wow! Did you sew the slipcovers? Gorgeous--would be perfect with the burlap accessories featured on SNS!

  2. Hi Ann! I bought the slipcovers from CSN stores for about $35 each. Not bad, eh? And you're RIGHT! They would be perfect with the burlap accessories! got me thinkin' girl! Thanks for visiting. :)

  3. The chairs look so dreamly now! That was a fantastic investment!

  17. I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to
    create your theme? Great work!

  18. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
