Brown chair makeover

We got this brown chair to fill a void in our living room when we bought our house. It's an ok chair, I guess, but microfiber was starting to get worn down on the arms and cushion and it was just so blah.
So I decided to liven it up.

This is actually the second slipcover I made. The first one was a brown background with a large-scale red, blue, green, and yellow print. I liked the fabric a lot, but when I went back to the store to buy more of it, they were out and then I found this print and I fell in love. Now I smile every time I see this chair!

And a new chair deserves new pillows right? Don't you love the hummingbird?
This chair makeover was just a part of my ongoing living room makeover. I also recovered the windowseat cushions that my mom helped me make last fall. Now I need to recover a huge stack of pillows and find some accessories and then the room will be done!
