~~~Coffee Table SlipCover~~~

Hi Friends!

I'm linking up with Savvy Southern Style
For
Wow Us Wednesday...


Well...I meant to get this written yesterday...but life happens. lol
But this is what I was attempting to work on and
finish yesterday. A slip cover for our coffee table.

Before
After...


This is the 2nd slipcover that I have made for
our Fam Room Coffee Table.
Hubs and I are "put your feet up and get comfy"
type peeps in the evening.
We enjoy our relaxing time.
Earlier this year we decided to use
what we had, our coffee table, and make it more comfy
for us to put our feet up on.

We bought a 2 inch batting foam...didn't
want to go to high as this table is already
couch level. 

My first attempt was too light weight of a
material and the seams didn't take to well to
the wear and tear of us constantly putting our
feet up.

So...I found another fabric I had stashed
and threw it over our table until I could
get this pinned and ready to sew.
That was probably 2 months ago that
I did this...procrastinator for sure!

All pinned and ready to sew...

A pretty good fit...the first try.
Yesterday I was determined to
pin and sew this *easy* project.
Easy...YIPES...I broke 3 needles
before I had to go to JoAnns and
purchase heavy duty Jean needles.
(Note to self, there is never an easy
project with a fickle old machine, old
lady doing the work and
a mouth that would need some
soap...yep a few ugly, bad words
were spoken before this was all said
and done).

The view from where I was sitting last evening!

Oh and I brought my only 3 hydrangeas in to
let them dry.  I put water in the pitcher and will
just let it soak up and evaporate...
the hydranges with reatain their color and look
beautiful for months to last.

But I lurve, luv, LOVE how it
FINALLY came together.

Be blessed!

Nice job Lorena! what a great idea! Our coffee table gets our feet too but ours is a hope chest that holds blankets so I just toss a blanket up their for our feet. ♥
