Drop Cloth Turned Slipcover

By Alchemy Fine Living on Nov 13, 2012

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before! I use drop cloths all the time for the furniture painting aspect of my business, but never sewed on it or upholstered with it. It is super durable, dirt cheap, and really cool fabric. A 12′ x 15′ drop cloth only runs $31. I used about half of one to create the slipcover for this adorable chair, which leaves plenty for pillows and possibly another small chair. What a deal!

This particular chair is going in my own home, but my mom and I are always up for custom work. If you have a chair that you would like re-upholstered, whether it be covered in a drop cloth or another fabric of your choice, stop by the store anytime. We are located in Santa Ana and busy sewing away on most days.
