Makebetter Project: Ercol Chair Covers
I’m on a roll lately, FINALLY ticking some ‘makebetter projects’ off of my todo lists. Of course as they go off, others go on…no wonder my to do app never drops below 30 items. Anyway, last May I purchased a pair of ercol chairs off ebay. One move and living room palette change later, I’ve finally recovered them to a more suitable light aqua. If you remember my inspiration for the room (oh that lovely Anthro aqua chesterfield!) I had previously decided what I wanted to do with the chairs, but spent months searching for someone to make them for me. I finally relented and bought a sewing machine.

I honestly feel like the room feels less cluttered without the pattern! It was my first ‘upholstery’ project and i used a new sewing machine that wasn’t quite up to the job of thick fabric, and I can find lots of flaws BUT they are done and I’m happy! They have already had coffee spilled on them, been washed and are back on, so I think are settling into our place quite nicely!
