20 DIY Slipcovers You Can Make!

I recently had a slipcover made for my brown, brown sectional. It completely changed the look of my room! A slipcover is a great way to change up the look of a room without having to invest in a new piece of furniture. And slipcovers are for more than just sofas. You can slipcover all kinds of furniture from ottomans to headboard and more. Plus, you can make slipcovers out of unexpected materials too!

I’m sharing 20 of my favorite slipcover ideas. Check them out after the break!
