Guest Room Chair

I finally found the Slipcover we had made for our simple parsons chairs. I had it made before we moved and then couldn't find it, until this week!!! It was mistaken for quilting fabric and tossed into the fabric basket.
I was so happy to find it because we've had an ugly brown parsons chair sitting in the corner of the guest room for months now!!

Because we're planning on outfitting the closet as a mini craft room, I'll need a chair for scrapbooking and sewing. And when it's not in use in the craft closet, it can be used in the guest room as a chair for putting your socks on, or just dropping your overnight bag on to :).

I found the fabric at Fabricana, and I also found a very nice seamstress who sewed it up for me for $50. It was the best $50 I ever spent, my sewing skills are amateur at best, and definitely up to the task of slipcovers, I'm at a throw pillow level! So for $50 I have a beautiful slipcover and my sanity is still intact, as are all of my fingers :)

Total Cost:
The chair is from Craigslist for $5
The Fabric cost $22
Seamstress fee $50
Total: $77 for a totally customized slip covered chair for our guest room!


  1. I love it Ashli! The fabric is perfect for the room...oh, and keep that seamstress...what a deal!

  2. Fantastic slipcover and fantastico deal on a seamstress!! WOW! Great color for the guest room too :) Hope all is well at your Manor xoxo

  3. Wow... what a difference a slipcover makes! I'm a sucker for stripes. It coordinates beautifully with the curtains.

    Some throw pillows for the bed in that fabric and the red dots from the curtains would be fun and you could put your own sewing skills to work. ;)

  4. The slipcover looks great. I live in your area so was wondering if you could pass on the name of your seamstress?

    Thanks so much

  5. Awesome! The room is coming together nicely. I'm hoping to see some of the chair fabric and the drapery fabric in the quilt along with the rest of the mad colors you're going to use.

  6. The colors are coming together nicely!

  7. Just love it, girl! Well done again!!!!

  8. Fabulous! And please be sure to let us see your mini craft room when you are done with it....I LOVE CRAFT ROOMS!!!

    Many Blessings,

  9. I agree best $77 and the chair looks like it's $300. Love the strong colour....

  10. Beautiful! I need to catch up on all the things you've been doing around your new home!

  11. Here's the woman we use to sew our slip covers:
    for all you local peoples, she's located on the North Shore! Hope that helps!

  12. Sorry here's the right email:

  13. I love it! We moved 7 months ago and I'm having the same problem. I've lost some things that I need!! I'm so glad you found it!

  14. Such a terrific fabric choice Ashli... the chair looks fabulous!!
