I finally made my drop cloth slip cover!!!!

I have been busy busy the last month or so. School started, life groups, housekeeping, wife hood and motherhood......I could go on and on. I have neglected my poor little blog for far too long! I am back and ready to share some of my projects that I have been wanting to do, but have been putting off. One being a slip cover for this sad little ottoman.

This ottoman used to be ginormous. About the size of a twin bed. We cut it down to a smaller rectangle, recovered it, and cut it down again to its current state. It is wobbly and the fabric is worn and pitiful.


This was my first attempt at cording. It is a bit uneven so don't look too close.

Can you see the big void place on the back wall behind the slipper chairs?

Here is a sneak peek at what will be living behind those chairs!

I am not sure of the color yet. The lovely owner of Urban farmhouse gave a sample off of one of her old pieces a few weeks ago. Hopefully Home Depot can match it for me. Stay tuned. Didn't I say "stay tuned" about four or five months ago when I was working on the boys room and the school room? I am a total procrastinator which is why I am joining the procrastinator party over at the Inspired Room.

Join me in two weeks when I reveal my totally finished boys room

And hopefully completely finished school room!

And this cabinet will be painted beautifully.....I can't wait!!


  1. Wow, you are so clever! Your new piece looks beautiful. What an inspiring blog too.Best wishes, NM.

  2. Oh, I can't wait either! The slipcover looks awesome! I am so excited to see what you do with that cabinet! Can't wait to see the boys room and school room too! So glad you are back! : )

  3. Just found your blog via NM and I am so glad I did. Funny how God leads us, even in blog land.

  6. I love the ottoman. I actually have one that I slip covered the exact same way with white cotton twill. Yours turned out so well! Well done and thanks for sharing.
