Got an ugly armchair? Justine at Sew Country Chick shows how you can make a slipcover to make it pretty again. As an added bonus, you can remove the slipcover when it needs a good laundering. (Definitely a plus when there are kids or pets in the house!) The one-size-fits-all slipcovers you can buy at the store never truly fit and the fabric is usually atrocious. Make one yourself and it’ll fit to the dimensions of your exact chair, and it’ll be from a fabric that you love. Go to her blog for the how-to.
