OMG! Antique Sofa Chenille Bedspread Slipcover Shabby Chic Wonderful

WOW! I am amazed every time I make a new slip covered sofa with lovely vintage chenille bedspreads and wonderful rose fabrics. Each one is just so pretty and unique. I go a little crazy with mixing different patterns of fabrics, each with a different lovely sprays of roses, swags and scrolls. I find I am most loving the white pink and aqua combos. I love to use a bunch of different vintage trims; bedspread fringe, pom pom, and brush fringes.

One of the things that makes them so wonderful is you don't have to live with just one fabric that you love. You can always change around the cushions and pillows to get a whole different look. It keeps us interested and we don't get bored with something we really love.

I am so excited about these and can't wait to make more. I have been on the hunt for more good vintage and antique sofas, love seats and chairs that i can transform. With that, I am also hunting out fabulous chenille bedspreads to use. Keep an eye out for more of My chenille slipcovered creations in my Etsy store http://www.vintagechicfurniture.etsy.com/ . Custom orders also happily created just for you :-)

  2. ...if only you could see the hearts coming out of my eyes when I looked at that sofa...

  3. Debbie,
    I so wished I lived closer (in California now),so I could come & soak up your store. I know I would always be in trouble with the hubby, because I would NEVER leave empty handed!! Keep up the great ideas.......& blog more often, some of us are waiting with baited breath to what your going to create next!!!
