Dropcloth Slipcover---Finally!

Well folks. I did it. And I didn't even swear in the process! I did break two needles on my sewing machine and I did almost break down and cry a time or two, but in the end, I ended up with a decent looking slipcover.
I was inspired by this double ruffle/pleat look I saw over at the home of always inspiring Miss Mustard Seed. I thought there was a chair with a similar look which was truly my inspiration, but I can't find it.

***Edit- I found it!

Gorgeous, right!?

It sure beats what the bench/ottoman looks like without the slipcover!

This is the beginnings of my master bedroom makeover...but I have to finish downstairs first!

This lamp redo is part of the bedroom project as well. I've really been into the deconstructed shade look lately. I decided to rip apart a shade I had, right down to the bones. Once the rest of the bedroom comes together, I'll decide if I want to add any wire and beading to it. Right now, I'm loving the bare bones look of it.

Remember when I found this lamp at Goodwill? A little paint and a nekked shade give it a whole new look!

Go see Miss Mustard Seed and she'll give you some useful tips on making dropcloth slipcovers.

It turned out fabulous! I love it. Oh I know too well the sewing blues. Broken needles and all it seems you came through the process alive and with a beautiful finished project.
