OOooh I just opened my inbox to see these photos from my seamstress! I get to pick up my sofa and her fancy new dress (aka slipcover) tomorrow~




Now the debate will be on whether we should leave the wood feet as is, or paint them an old grey???

Oh wow, looks fantastic Holly! That slipcover fits like a glove. My vote is for a greyish-blue with some serious distressing on the legs.

I say paint em. Robin's egg blue or a lovely shade of gray. Awesome couch

Mary said...

Oooohhh...thats a tough one. I would get it home and get it in the room first just to be sure. Grey sounds fabulous, but maybe the dark legs would "ground" it a little more with your dark floors. Hmmmm.... ~mary~

Love the idea of painting them..! Can't wait to see it finished and in your house!! = )

Maybe I'm cautious....I'd leave it wood for awhile, then maybe paint it grey. I know it'll look fabulous no matter what! I love your furniture!

Love the sofa and your blog. I vote grey too, since we all know you love it. I'm looking into getting a slipcover made for my sofa and also a wingback chair. What do you think a good price is?

Looks great! I'm torn between leaving them and gray. Apparently I'm the only one!

Holly you have me so envious that you've found a lovely seamstress with great prices and fabulous talent!!! Oh how I wish I could find a seamstress to sew slipcovers for a few things without charging enough to make me bankrupt! ;) (Any recommendations on how to search for one?) Can't wait to see the sofa and all of your auction goodies. :)

Oh, I love the couch! I like the legs as they are:) They would go beautiful with your floor!

Donna said...

I love slipcovers...needing to get one done for my own sofa - SOON!

Jo said...

I would say paint greyish-blue and distress!!!

I vote for grey- and I echo the previous question about price. I've made a few slipcovers myself, but I have a chair that I would like for someone else to tackle. I have no clue what to excpect! Any rules of thumb I can use to make sure I'm getting a good deal?

My vote is for the legs painted grey.

Thanks for all the input ladies!!

Pricing really depends on what fabric you choose. For this cover I went with a bit pricier fabric which cost $120 in total. But the labor was $180, which seems to be unbeatable in my area so I am very happy to have found my wonderful seamstress!
