I'm filling my pockets.



Here is the finished pocket organizer from my last post. (Anything that cuts down on "Where did I put that" time will help to maintain sanity!)

That is a good idea! You should sell them on etsy!

Sweet!

May I contact you about slipcovers?

I have this settee, practically brand new but with very uncomfortable fabric...so I thought about slipcover.

I'd like to ask your input, don't know if it's appropriate here, please let me know how to contact you ?

Thank you.

Katie,

So I have this tall wingback style settee (8900 Brianna Settee) just like the one pictured in the link below.

It's practically brand new except for the really rough, uncomfortable feel of the fabric. With its dimensions being 58"W x 37"D x 43"H, how much do you think a custom-made slipcover for its size would cost?

Thank you in advance for any insights you can offer.

Bob,
Prices vary in different parts of the country, so you will need to talk to someone in your town. Slipcovers can cost as much as upholstery. My prices are slightly less than the cost to reupholster, and I ask the customer to provide the fabric, which allows them the opportunity to shop for a bargain. Slipcovers require more fabric than upholstery, so be careful about using an upholstery yardage chart.

I just found your blog today and wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading it--it is very inspiring. From the ruffled slipcovered sofa to the ornate slipcovered mannequin form in your inspiration list-It seems you have found the 25th hour in the day!

Much thanks and keep up the fabulous work!
