My Storefront with My Vintage Chenille Bedspread Slipcovered Creations






I just had to take a picture of my storefront with all the lovely slip covered chairs I made with vintage chenille bedspreads and lovely rose fabrics. Most are for orders from my online shop at ETSY.COM . I will soon be making a few sofas as well. The weather has been beautiful , so I have been bringing them all out to show off the the world (or at least Union Street). The blue, yellow and white pieces on the right were made for a customers 90 year old mom. She is moving into her new apartment next week and these will be a lovely surprise for her. It was my pleasure to make them. A very special endeavour indeed. Her inspiration for me was a wonderful designer, Makenzie Childs. She mixes fabrics and trims in a lovely way. Her upholstered pieces are whimsical and wonderful. When i delivered them today, My client was so thrilled. She said they came out even better than she ever could have imagined. I was thrilled !! The next order I will be making is a wing back chair made from a clients Mothers bedspread. It is a beautiful bubble gum pink wedding ring design with beautiful thick fringe trim. She has passed awhile back and her daughter is so pleased to have this as a wonderful memory of her. Yet another very important and meaningful project, I am honored to have the privilege. I would love to make some thing for you. See more of my pieces at www.vintagechicfurniture.com big hugs to all...:-)

  1. They are beautiful - wish I still had my blue and white wedding ring chenille bedspread - but I loaned it and never got it back. You do a fantastic job on the chairs - are they slip covered or actually upholstered?
