Drop Cloth Slip Cover

So the other day I was paging through Pottery Barn and saw this..

a drop cloth slip cover.

I thought to myself, well why not!!??

So, I headed to Lowe's and purchased this..

to cover this...

from a year of this..

The Pottery Barn slip cover was about $100 plus shipping for the size that I needed. The Lowe's drop cloth was $30 for about the same size.


It was really easy to do, I just tucked a little here and snipped a little there. No sewing what-so-ever!!!

It is heavy enough to cover the blue but still soft enough to sit and eat or relax on and I can wash it!!

I am very pleased with the way it turned out!

I just need to fill it with some pillows now!

(sorry about the pictures, my lighting in the kitchen is still under discussion. I mentioned recessed lighting to the hubby and he said "where?", not sure what that meant other than I think he is trying to avoid the situation. I am also hoping to get down to Ikea this fall and look for a new light for the over the kitchen table as well as some other goodies!)

Hope everyone is having a great week!
I am looking forward to a little break in the weather this weekend, it will be about 70 during the day and down to the 50's at pit!!!!

This looks lovely. Can you even believe that change for $30! Great thinking. You are so clever.

Oh my gosh! I have to try this. I purchased a slip cover from Target a few years back and returned it. I sweat and stretched and practically busted a rib trying to get the dang thing on :)

I've always wondered if slipcovers stay put or need to be tucked back in a lot!? Casual beachy style..., just the way I like it!

Thank you Pottery Barn! What a nice easy update.

BTW, that was sweet of your friend on today's post.
