Recent slipcover job


This is a recent slipcover job I did. There are actually 4 pieces, 2 loveseats, sofa, and the chair can't been seen from this angle. They were all done in an off white upholstery weight fabric. The client uses these in the summer and takes them off in the fall for a "summer" and "winter" look. I received a phone call from the clients cleaning ladies, telling me how much they loved the new slipcovers. "They looked so much nicer than the ones that were there before and they were so much easier to take on and off." I'm now re-making some cushions from one of the gals!

Measure Twice, Cut once, and Pray without ceasing

















I made this cornice for a designer. It had to be a perfect fit, I think it turned out pretty good! The cornice fits flush against the wall without any returns. When the installer lifted the cornice up into the spot, it sat on the window frame, and was such a snug fit, he was able to leave it up there while he climbed down from his ladder to reach his drill. It's held up there by 2 screws hidden under the welt at the top.
