Your opinion requested...read on.
If you've been around for awhile, this striped chair will be familiar to you. It is the #1 beloved chair in our home. Everyone loves it and I always gets lots of compliments on it. However, it has finally started to show too much wear and tear (old photo below).
I've been struggling for awhile now, with what to do about it...order a slipcover that didn't really fit, get a new chair altogether, or do the scariest of all: attempt a custom slipcover myself.
I have a friend (hi, Julie) who never bats an eye at making slipcovers for all her chairs, sofas or loveseats. I watched her help my DIL slipcover one of their wing-back chairs once, and she made it look so easy.
So I decided to get brave and save my family's favorite chair, ever!!! : )
Here's where you come in. Do you think I should recover the accent pillow in this floral (below) to match the ottoman? Or...
in this cool stripe I just found? *BTW, I'm only partially done with this. Still lots of work to go, including covering the seat.
Have a great weekend.
