Independent PUBLISHER of books on everything from Architecture to Zuni Jewelry
In her second book, author Marge Jones guides readers through the process of refurbishing items for virtually every room in the home by using more of her alternative slip-covering technique. With detailed, step-by-step instructions and 350 photos and diagrams, 19 projects will have you creating covers for various style chairs—channel back, wing, twin barrel, dining, wooden trim, and recliners—as well as barstools, ottomans, throw pillows, boxed cushions, neck rolls, sectionals, and sleeper sofas. Readers will be given tips and ideas for making Roman shades from old drapery, towel bar drapes, valances, and repurposing linens and shams. Marge’s method of making these beautiful coverings eliminates the muslin or paper pattern-making process, saving valuable time and energy, while achieving a tighter, more attractive fit. Once again, snug-fitting, easily made custom slipcovers will fit so well that your furniture will look brand new. For individuals of all skill level.
