Kitchen Chair Covers

Hi !I thought I'd share my red slipcovers for my "new" kitchen chairs. I bought the red and white checked and red and white striped fabric from Ikea. Did some red and white striped piping.

We are pretty much slobs here, so I knew the white covers wouldn't stay white. These covers are washable and than if I want, I can take them off to reveal the white seat. Now I won't worry if someone spills or drops something.
I'm getting my ,mantle decorated for Valentines and will take pic's as soon as the sun comes out-don't know when that will be-it's so dreary outside. Thanks for all the great comments on the Valentines pillows. You should try one. They are fun to make. Have a great day!


  1. Oh, I love your red and white! My kitchen 'dinette' is actually an old (probably 30's or 40's) dining room set with pressed back chairs that I bought at an antique market for $125. It came with the table with an extra leaf and four chairs! And it was already antiqued a bright red, which I love! I also have a bench from a NC cotton mill that is painted in bright royal blue enamel paint, and an antique cabinet of my grandmothers that is antiqued mustard yellow. Can you tell I love color? So glad I've found your blog! Becky G. in GA

    And no, I am not - as my word verification suggested - psycho! Too funny!

  2. So adorable. I bought a "new" chair at an estate sale that needs recovering in the seat. I've got the old one off, now I need to find some fabric and get it finished. Thanks for the inspirations.

  3. Oh Leslie...these are sooo perfect!! You are a true artist and a great seamstress also!!

    Someday I hope to sit in those chairs in that darling kitchen...and we will talk and laugh and just have fun!!

    Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  4. What a cheerful, inviting kitchen table. Wonderful job on the chair covers.

  5. Hi Leslie!
    I knew you were a kindred spirit, we're slobs over here too bwahhahhahaha!
    Your chair seat covers are so darling, you did a beautiful job. You are so industrious! Could you wave a little of that over my way teehee?!
    My dad's girlfriend unearthed my mom's sewing machine and they brought it to me yesterday evening when we all met for dinner. It's a Singer Featherweight - the one I learned to sew on. Brings back tons of memories.
    Happy Tuesday and happy crafting to you!

  6. Hi Leslie,
    I agree with Cindy, your chair covers ARE perfect. What a fabulous job you did on them. Your Valentine's Day pillow are precious as well.
    Thanks for sharing with us all.

  7. Leslie,
    These are just perfect, do you do outside orders????? I have four chairs in my kitchen that need covers ! Please email me at sanjos333@yahoo.com if you do! Sandy

  8. What a beautiful job! Hearing your comment about white not staying white reminds me of my sister. She used to have these gorgeous white couches that were all pillow, no couch if you know what I mean. I told her when she had kids (or even got married) she'd be getting rid of them. Or at least recovering them. And yep, she has a nice shade of brown now. Hides the dirt, ha!

    P.S. I have a Stylish Blogger award for you at my site! http://www.nounsandviolets.com/2011/01/and-the-award-goes-to/

  9. Those are wonderful!!! You did such an amazing job on those....love them!! Love the red and white, it's so cheery!!!

  10. Oh now stop! You are making me drool all over my laptop. These are so adorable and washable to boot! I really like the stripe with the gingham. Can I come over and have a latte? I'll bring them with me. (I think I might have already invited myself over before - hope you don't mind.)

  11. love the chair covers..... so fresh and cheery! Oh man, I wish we had Ikea here. I have only to been to Ikea one time and that was about 15 years ago in Paris. I have been dreaming about going back to one ever since! Happy day...

  12. You did such a professional looking job on those chair covers Leslie! I especially love the striped piping with the checked fabric. I wish you lived nearby, so maybe you could show me how to cover the cushions on my living room chairs. I did one so far, and it's kinda awful!

  13. Oh, I've got to learn to sew again! These are the cutest seat covers! I just love your cherry display! So yummy - and Valentine-y!
    Hugs, Patti

  14. We love your chair covers! They are so bright and cheery! We also love the striped piping that you picked out they add the perfect touch!

  16. Do you do custom orders? Please let me know.
