Instant Slipcovers by Chair Aprons

Why Wait....

Miss Mustard Seed


I have always loved the look of slipcovers on dining chairs.  They add a certain charm and informality to a dining room.  I love the versatility of being able to change the look with the seasons too.  Slipcovers are practical, because they can easily be removed for washing.   The only downside to slipcovers, in my opinion, is expensive if they are custom made.  However, it sometimes beats the alternative of having the chairs reupholstered if you are in a hurry or don't have an upholstery person you like.  When I was in High Point at furniture market in April, I ran across a solution, that I think you will find interesting and affordable, if you like the slipcover look, but don't want to spend custom prices.  They adjust to fit almost any size dining chair. 
Plus, they ship quickly so your instant transformation can happen quickly! 


Here is the display booth at market.  Sorry the photographs aren't better.
 (ok, so it was the end of the day and I was exhausted!)

This was my favorite pattern.  This neutral pattern would work in so many places.

 Here is one of the wall displays.  The little boxes they come in are really cute.  These 
would make great gifts for wedding, mothers or friends.

Here is another display not he opposite wall.
I thought this was a clever way to display the patterns.

These four patterns/colors were popular at the show..

Dove Linx

Indigo Chevron

Swedish Blue

White Linen

If you want to order from me email me at for pricing and options
These will be included in my online shop which will be debuting in the next couple of weeks.  
Stay tuned for more exciting things to come!!!!

    ps - chair aprons aren't for me - but i think they are really cute - they are great for the 'traditional' home - the chevron is my fave -- i'm just super modern when it comes to home decor - but i totally appreciate this look and the clientel who would go for it - i think it's a GREAT idea!!!

    1. You are too sweet! Thank you so much! I love that bathroom featured on your blog?

  4. I have to reupholster my dining room chairs but these look like a fun option and will add more fabric to the space if the skirted option is chosen. Excited to see your shop, Lisa!

    1. Thanks Lisa! It will take a little while to get it rolling but I'm working on it!

  5. Great resource! And, I'm excited about this online shop!! Are you still working with BambooPink?

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I love your blog and always read it! No nice of you to pop in and visit my little blog! Hope you are have a wonderful day!

  7. This is a great idea! My dining room has way too much wood. I don't want to paint any of it, but I've thought of slipcovers for the chair seats and backs to add color and hide wood. I can't wait to see your online store!

    1. It's going to take me a little more time before it's up and running. My blog designer is swamped so once she has time, we will get it up! I still have much to do!!! I hope your day is wonderful!

  8. What a great idea. I have always loved a chair that has a slip. So cute!
