I admit it. I’m lazy. Not in the ‘I don’t want to do anything’ kind of way, but in the ‘why do it the hard way?’ kind of way. Hence, my latest project was born. Behold my 10 minute (seriously!) easy, no sew slipcover!
About a year ago I got some fabric really, really cheap at Joanne’s. That’s why I bought it. In other words, I don’t love it. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it. Translation: I didn’t want to spend hours sewing slip covers with a fabric I wasn’t even sure I’d want to look at a year from now, much less longer than that. Plus, be honest; can you tell this is put together with pins?
Even if you can, just say you can’t. I’m sensitive like that.
Wanna see what’s underneath all that ‘no-sew slipcover’ beauty? Behold (there’s that word again) the ugliest chair cushion EVER. If you dare, take a look, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
So now you know. I HAD to cover it, or one more look and I was going to turn to stone. But hey, it’s a solid wood chair and was purchased at Goodwill for $20, so I’m not complaining.
All it takes is plain old safety pins. Nothing fancy here folks. You basically wrap the cushion like you would wrap a gift and use safety pins to hold it in place. Oh, and I didn’t have any help doing this. I mention that because if I did, it would have been even tighter looking.
We picked up this chair at Goodwill for $20 I think a few years ago. It’s been screaming at me for a new chair cushion all this time. Now I think the wood needs some spiffing up, I’m just not sure what to do with it yet. Baby steps.
