#Ten Minute Slipcover

10 Minutes

This is a super easy slipcover for some kitchen stools. You can see the details in the blog post I attached.
Ten Minute Slipcover
My kitchen is a simple farmhouse style. Lots of white, so I have a neutral background for simple seasonal changes. How I used some fabric to dress up these white kitchen stools is a good example of my style. It didn't hurt that it was cheap and took about 10 minutes!

I found some gingham napkins at the thrift store...5 for $2.99. I took them with the intention of making pillows but then decided they were the perfect size to fit my kitchen stools! They were already hemmed on four sides so I simply pinned them right sides together and stitched around three sides on the sewing machine. I turned them right side out again, gave them a quick press with the iron and Voila! new slipcovers in ten minutes! You don't need to be a seamstress to do this little job or even have a fancy sewing machine. Just a plain, straight stitch is all that's needed. It's so easy to make a pretty change if you can think a bit out of the box!

    There aren't many things better in life than being able to create something so pretty inexpensively and quickly plus being able to change it up the same way. Yay.
