Mission Accomplished!

Well... almost.
I have the two slip-covers in the bird of paradise print completed, and the two with stripes are waiting in the wings.


I love the colors in the fabric with the gray slate tile, gray in one shade or another is the constant color scheme through out the house and I'm certainly using more than "Fifty Shades". (not sure that came out right, but you get the point)
Yes, I know that I need a rug in this room...
I'm looking, but can't decide between seagrass, or a traditional wool with a pattern.


I took these next two photos last night after I finished up the second chair... sorry for the glare in the windows.
This is the view of the Sun Room from the Great Room and this view is the reason I chose a large size print for the chairs, since we would be seeing a lot of the back of the chairs, I thought it should be something worth looking at.





For those of you who didn't see yesterday's post, this is what the chairs looked like before the slip-covers.


You must admit that I turned these ugly duckling into swans, and after I stop patting myself on the back, I plan to get started on to the other two.

Here's a sneak peak!


I will post tips and "how to's" while I'm making the striped slip-covers for those who would like a behind the scenes tutorial.
Hope everyone is having a super week!
