We have had this 1990’s mauve recliner, a hand-me-down from the in-laws for over 11 years . Mauve never matching anything in our living room. I cannot believe I have lived with mauve this long. My accent wall used to be terracotta orange and I still rocked a mauve chair. My problem is I am cheap and the thing is in great shape. So every time I went to purchase a slipcover for it costing around $100, ( I have had them in the cart many times) I would tell myself you can make a slip cover, so I put it back. Besides the ones you can buy are stretchy and clingy, not what I wanted. You know how lazy boy recliners have the cushions attached to them? I didn't want it to look like that. I am loving all the drop cloth slip covers out there in blog land especially with the pleated skirts so this was the look I was going for. I have been reading blogs for over a year now and let me tell you, it has changed my life. I have found my people. People who can talk about decorating, creating, organizing, painting and repainting all day long. You have INSPIRED me, made me up my game. So now I made that darn slipcover.
I will post a tutorial this week I just dont have the energy to type all that up today after yesterday. It will prove that this is the same chair. It doesn't look like it does it?
