Slipcover..My first attempt!

I've always admired all the lovely slipcovered furniture on your beautiful blogs, so I thought I'd give it a go.
My neighbour had put out an old brown velvet lounge and ottoman out on the kerb,so I sent my boys to do a roadside rescue.
I didn't take a before,but trust me, it was UGLY..
I checked out youtube and found an easy tutorial and away I went.
I used a french blue toille quilt to make the cover.
I reversed the quilt for the top section.
I added some pretty trim to cover the seams.
For my first attempt I'm quite happy.

Add a french tray and some pretty roses and I'm a happy girl..
