New Life For A Tired Sofa

I have had this sofa for about 10 years and recovered 2 times. The above pictures are before and after. The fabric was a muslin, but I couldn't wash it and it was sure ready to get a change somehow. So, I slipcovered it in a beautiful white matlasse. It is so soft and cushy. It was my first ever sofa slipcover. I thought it turned out beautiful. I am changing my entire den to white. It is so soothing and cool for the summer. I will be making pillows and slipcovers for other chairs in the room. Will update you later! Got to go lay down on the sofa! Ahhhhh!!!

  1. Gina,
    you're so close to me! I'm in Raleigh! just wanted to let you know, i'll be featuring you this friday.

  2. Gina, did you use Jeanelle's DVD or did you wing it? I'm about to tackle my first sofa. Did you do a muslin first or start with the matelasse? Any tips?

    Thanks so much,

  5. Hi Gina,
    I just saw you over at pink and polka dot!
    I know I've seen this slip before, but you the man!! This slipcover is as perfect as upholstery. So gorgeous I can't stop looking at it. The family is gone. We can talk anytime.

  6. Wow...nice! I just finished a wing chair but can't imagine tackling a sofa just yet. Beautiful job. I'll bet it was hard to work with being so thick?
