Ticking Stripe Sofas


I have a small hand-me-down settee in desperate need of a makeover. Right now I have a piece of fabric tossed over it to hide some of the heinous 90's burgundy, navy and hunter green postcard-print upholstery. Yeah. As usual, I won't have a ton of cash to spend on the project, so I'm thinking a simple ticking stripe might be the answer.


How cute are these two ticking stripe sofas? The welt on this one seems to have been cut on the bias. Fun!

I have a hand me down loveseat from my grandmother that I was thinking of slipcovering in navy and white ticking. Post your fabric source if you find a good one!

I have a little french chair that I upholstered in a blue ticking stripe 15 years ago and I still love it now. It's a classic. Definitely a good (and inexpensive!) way to go.
