Barstool Covers - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!



UPDATE: Sorry this post somehow got published before I intended. I must have hit "publish" instead of "save" last night! Now I've updated it with Inlinkz so you can add links to your posts.


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  Last week I shared my barstools that I painted and last weekend I sewed some little ruffle covers to add a little cottage charm.

I figured I could whip these up in about an hour but it took me twice that long!  That always seems to be the way it is when I sew! 

I've been suffering through allergy season this year!  I have two huge olive trees outside my balcony that are in full bloom. I never knew I was so allergic to them!  They are three stories high and I'm on the second floor.  Somehow I managed to get this slip covers made between rubbing my eyes every few minutes! I'm happy I did it! I really like them!

I've been wanting to make some of these for my dining room table chairs but I know now that will take me a long time! Maybe some day.  I just wish I enjoyed sewing more!

I made a cover for a stool out of drop cloth scraps. It turned out pretty good. Love yours! Your home is beautiful, and I always enjoy seeing it, and linking to your linky party. Thanks for hosting!

I have those identical stools from Target! I painted mine white also then cut a round piece of 2 inch foam for the top and covered them with Rachel Ashwell fabric:) Yours look lovely, you did a great job on the slip covers!
