White Slipcovered Chair…

If you have been reading my blog for a while
now, you know my obsession love for white slipcovers.
Well, I still do not have a full living room full of
white slipcovers, but I do have a lovely
shabby chic comfy reading chair with an extra lovely
white slipcover now…

Before…

Confused yet? Well here it is in the short version…
So I bought a chair for nearly free on craigslist,
& I ordered an Ikea Slipcover off of Ebay to go on the chair.
I had measured the chair & thought it would be a near perfect
fit, but needless to say.. it wasn’t.
My husband & I pondered for a while about what to do,
but a white slipcover was a must…
So we got the saw out & decided to take the back of the chair
apart & trim the back off…
After trimming the wooden back down with the saw
we put the upholstery back together to get ready for the slipcover.
I think I may be the only one who ever altered a chair to fit the slipcover,
but the slipcover was prettier, so it won.

After trimming the back down, the slipcover fit
perfectly. I am still waiting for the wrinkles to fall
out on the chair, but for now I am loving it.

 This tiny corner of the living room before the big
slipcover chair…

 I love that chair… but it was too small for the corner
& not as cozy as it is now…

I love the durability & the quality of this Ikea
slipcover so far. I would for sure recommend them…

This corner is by no means done,
but I am loving the changes so far & looking forward
to many more changes coming soon…

I wish I had better pictures to show you,
but these are just some quick photos that I took
before we left on vacation..
But you get the idea of the wonderful cozy white
slipcover. Do you love that leather ottoman? You can
read more about it {here}.

I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season so far!
I am having the most amazing time in Michigan &
enjoying every second with family & friends.
This weekend was full of fun Christmas parties &
last minute Christmas shopping.
& the weeks to come are filled with fun times with
family & friends.
Talk to you soon…
