Need to Make a Slip Cover But Not Sure How?

These are the best slip cover tutorials around to help you achieve that farmhouse look for a ton less. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or not, these lovely ladies have made it super easy to follow directions and make your own slip cover for pottery-barn lovers such as myself.

Personally, I love the detailed advice from Honey Bear Lane. Her slipcovers look so professional, even I want to tackle this major undertaking.


I also really love Miss Mustard Seed’s bleaching drop cloths for that lovely white look. Here are her instructions for getting painter’s drop cloths to look like a million bucks. If you are working with drop cloths from any hardware store, make sure you wash before sewing. Marian’s a pro at upholstery projects. Check out some of her work at


If you’re not looking for a hard tutorial, this no-sew one is perfect from I think her covers look absolutely perfect and it comes to show decorating doesn’t have to be expensive. Great job girl….and thanks for the awesome tutorial.


Melaine at mysweetsavannah also has a wonderful tutorial on how to add farmhouse style with simple drop cloth tips. Check her out as her blog is amazing and inspirational.


Another great source for preping your drop cloth comes from Farmhouse 40. Great information on how to treat and make your house look super fresh and rustic. This also comes in handy if you plan on making curtains or anything else out of drop cloths.

I love this next one from pink and polka dot. For those of use who really need something 35486afac7a3d4c4dc33f1ccf10f0ec4less complicated and easy, this is the one for us. It’s also super easy to remove and wash when needed.


There you have it. These tutorials are great to generate ideas and get started on tackling all your furniture makeovers. While some may be more difficult than others, you have the resources you need to begin. From washing, prepping, bleaching, to actually sewing or not, I hope you too can transform your space into the farmhouse of your dreams.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great and blessed day!
