I am not
much of a seamstress, so I am pretty pleased at how my new drop
cloth (of course) barstool slipcovers turned out. They are not
really 'tailored' per say, but they get the job done.
liked the barstool that we had. I like their shape. They are
vintage and hardwood, but I was kind of over the bright colors and
design. We've had them for about 4 years now. My husband bought
them at a funky gallery in Wilmington, NC called
Una Luna. They were pained by a local artist, and my husband
didn't really want them to be re-painted. That was my first idea,
but after some convincing, I agreed with him. After all in a
different context, I might really like the bright colors again some
day. However in my current
dining room/kitchen they
were standing out like a sore thumb.
inspired by these very adorable parson chair pleated drop cloth
the box pleats, but I didn't quite know how to translate them to my
barstools since a) because of the bright mismatch-y colors, I could
not have my slipcovers 'Capri' length and b) they are way beyond my
is my result. More casual for sure, but still a much more clean and
less colorful look than the multi hued tribal paint job.
