UGLY Pink & Blue Paisley Get's Slip Covered!

Here is my old chair from my office many many moons ago! The fabric worked then but, not now. So... I had them (yes, there are two of them) slip covered in a wonderful brick red & white checked fabric. But, one of the slipcovers needed to go to the dry cleaners & when I walked by the uncovered chair I thought "I need to show this on Susan's Met Monday"

Here is another view of the naked chair.

That fabric is pretty BAD!!!!!! Isn't it?

Here is the matching chair sitting in my Dinning Room.

A close up of the back detail. I just LOVE Those Buttons & the way the seamstress did the detail work.

Another view of the back.

So many of you have commented on them when I use them in my Breakfast Room. This is a photo of them from Winter 2008. This post got a lot of comments on the Red & White chairs. I hope you enjoyed seeing the Metamorphosis of the Ugly Pink & Blue Paisley Chairs to my beautiful Red & White Jewels. You know you can find a lot of other fun ideas. Click the button on my side bar & go see Susan & the other girls. Thank you Susan for another fun Met Monday.

Love them -- I would love to have this same look in my dining area! They look wonderful in their new "dresses".

I love the slip-covered chairs. Who does these kinds of things? I have a wing-back and two sofas I'd like to slip-cover, but have no idea where to turn for professional results.

Those turned out so adorable. Your are right, the old fabric was just...not real pretty. I have always loved the checkerd look. Very nice.

Oh those buttons are wonderful! Good thing the chairs are being used in a way that people can see the buttons. The red checkered fabric completely changes the look of those chairs too. They are so cheerful looking all dressed up.

Amazing what slipcovers can do! Love them in the red and white! Loved the table with the red, white and blue!
