This time, we planned to slip cover a chair of hers and next time she is here we're going to do a chair of mine!
Via her sister-in-law, she introduced me to Miss Mustard Seed. OH. MY. The first night together, we simply watched her slipcover tutorial videos and she is so adorable, plus she knows her stuff! Anyway, I just loved watching her and thought that was fun in itself!

Isn't that a great makeover? She estimated it cost about $30 to make this slip cover and all the piping - very worthwhile for the amazing difference!
