Dining Chair Slipcovers
Finding inexpensive Parsons chairs was (surprisingly) easy, thanks to Young House Love.
Finding slipcovers was a bit more difficult.
Our criteria was:
- Cheap ($20 or Less) for Each Slipcover
- Natural or Neutral, to go with the Gray and Gold of Our Dining Room
- Machine Washable
I looked on Ballard Designs, Pottery Barn, and World Market. I even read the post on Young House Love about the linen slipcovers they purchased for their chairs….they shrunk their slipcovers in the wash, and then dyed them brown.
I thought I could do something similar, cheaper. When I was in Austin, Texas a few weeks ago visiting my friend Erin, I picked up 8 linen slipcovers for $10 each at IKEA.
I got home, put them on the Parsons chairs, and they look rumpled and messy. The dimensions weren’t right, and they were too white. I attempted to shrink one and it still looked like garbage.
So, those slipcovers are going back to IKEA.
As much as I didn’t want to admit it, I knew we needed something stretchy. We found some “antique gold” slipcovers by SureFit on Target’s website for $14.99 a piece (with elasticity in them). Perfect color, right price.
