Featured Designer & DIY Slipcover Giveaway!

As my regular readers know, I've been in a sofa dilemma for some time now. They were perfect at our old house, but we moved last year and I left my old decor palette behind! I'm done with the green, red & gold and unfortunately, the sofa print has red flowers. I love the rest of the qualities - big, sturdy, semi-dark - all needed for boys & dog!
These are the sofas:




(everything you see will change!)  



One option is  to just buy new sofas. But like I said, I love the size & quality and it would cost a pretty penny for new.  Plus, these are only 4 years old. 

So here is another option: making my own slipcovers! I did re-upholster a 3-seater sofa in my 20's so I should be able to pull this off. In that experience, the main problems I had were not knowing HOW to finish the back of the seat cushions. I pulled the material, folded it, ran long threads and attached a stretch of elastic!  It wasn't pretty. Luckily, no guests ever looked at the backs of the cushions! 



But now, that problem is solved! I've met Shelley from Custom Slipcovers By Shelley. She has a business of making custom slipcovers to fit your furniture perfectly - if you live in her area. If you don't, guess what? You can STILL get that perfect slipcover by using her new instructional DVD! 

And even better, YOU CAN WIN ONE! 
Enter below to win this do-it-yourself DVD worth $48.50. 

See what Shelley has done and now you can too!

The followers are in the far right sidebar under the green tab "Decorate with Me." If you don't see the faces, try re-freshing the page as sometimes blogger acts up and doesn't show followers. Thank you for entering!

I didn't find HTML code to add Shelley's button to my blog so I put a link to her blog on my sidebar. I also added your button. Let me know if there is a better way to link Shelley's button. Thank you!

Hi. This is my first visit to your blog, via Shelley's blog. Love the revamped furniture you've been slipcovering. Nice work! I have been wanting Shelley's how to video for a long time, would love to win it. I have several pieces of my own to slipcover and then the skies the limit, right?!

Hi! I'm following both your blog and Shelley's.
Wow - those before and after photos are amazing! I will need to know how to do this when we move. Our couch has been messed up by cats and a dog - hair, slobber, etc. This would be better than buying a new couch! Thanks for the giveaway and thanks for sharing it with me on twitter.
