From bedspread to setee cover

When this nice all white chenille bedspread was purchased years ago, I didn't realize it was a full size - it has been stashed away until yesterday when I decided to look at it closely. I have no full size bed, so the next best thing to do was to recycle. The wicker settee on my screened porch needed a quick fix for the summer and the other cover I made earlier was beginning to fade. All I had to do to make this work was measure the length for the hem, being careful to not cut into the basket work design of the spread. Hems on each side gave sufficient coverage to allow a portion to drape over the back of the settee. Using the same four bed pillows makes for an easy fix to last until fall. Love to recycle anything - that's my goal. Do you recycle items - move them to another spot in your home - most any item serves multiple purposes - as Gayle says "think outside the box". Oh - the small tablecloth on table was made earlier from another bedspread.


  1. Fantastic idea!! And a great way to recycle your bedspreads. I think it looks great, Bettie!


  2. Very nice Miss Bettie, but I would expect no less!
    I love, love, love the table cover too!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! I used to use a bedspread as a cover for my old, worn chair and a half! Great minds think alike!

  4. Alright, I decided to post the pics! Thanks for the "re"inspiration!
