DIY: Laziest Slipcover Tutorial

I cannot tell you how many chairs I have rescued from garage sales and thrift stores. Great chairs that just needed a new slipcover to be fabulous again!

If you are aware of how expensive quality new chairs are, you can see the appeal in finding a well-constructed chair that just needs a fresh new slipcover.  But, because I am completely lazy, frugal and not a seamstress, those chairs sit in my garage or hide under  a blanket in the corner of a room for years. YEARS I tell you! I want the slipcovers, but not the cost of hiring an upholsterer.

If you are the same way, grab all those lonely sad chairs from your garage because I found a solution for you, the lazy slipcover tutorial from Pink & Polka Dot! If you love a casual cottage slipcovered chair, you’ll LOVE this tutorial!
