i had 2 different pairs of chairs - one a simple mission style and the other a sweet queen anne style - i wanted to group them around a white table - so i pulled them together by sewing together some matching slipcovers - i used a soft washed linen in powder green and accented them with a sweet kicky pleated ruffle .. the chairs will eventually be painted off white to go with a round table. ..

I'm in the process of undertaking a slipcover for my cozy chair for the first time...send me a little sewing mo-jo!

Thanks for sharing,
