I got it done! Remember the dropcloth teaser I posted. Well here is the full project. This is the chaise lounge that fits wonderfully in my sunroom. Unfortunately, one certain German Shepherd/Rottweiler puppy named Max thought it was a great chew toy. We came home one day and Max had dragged it across the living room in our previous house. He was still a lap size puppy at the time.
After reading about the wonderful things one could do with Home Depot drop cloths, I decided it was time to tackle the slip cover I had been thinking about. Here is Max checking things out mid fitting. This is still his favorite peice of furniture. But now he naps on it rather than chews on it. Thank goodness!! I am afraid he could do a bit more damage now that he weighs about 100 pounds more than when he originally claimed the chaise.
We are a very pet friendly home. Max isn't the only one to share this napping spot with me. Baby had to check things out also.
I think she agrees! This project was a success! I love that it turned out just the way I imagined. And slipcovers are as easy as they make it look on HGTV shows. I still have to finish the pillow cover, but couldn't wait to post.
Here is another close up of the pleats. What do you think? Can I consider this a success?
