Well today I am tackling that beast and attempting to make a slipcover for it. You know how you always have a certain minds eye picture of what the finished product will look like? I only hope it comes out looking half as good as it does in my head!
I got six yards of heavy white canvas for $6 a yard and I am printing the fabric myself using a stencil I cut.....again, in my head it will look fabulous!
This piece is tricky because of the curves and I have never slip-covered such a tailored piece before. It is really well made so just getting the tailored skirt off was a real pain in the arse!
There were about a million upholstery nails in that thing so I had to use my pliers and puuuulll with all my strength to get that skirt off!
It's not the easiest thing to heft around either...awkward shape so it tends to tilt and pivot exactly when you don't want it to.
ANYWAY...I'm going for it. I printed a test of the stencil I cut for this and I think it's going to look soooo good. Well, at least in my head...............
Wish me luck!
