Today you're in for a really special crafty treat: a chance to win a How To Slipcover DVD! Everyone has had a piece of furniture they wished they could redo or update at some point - if you're like me (have kids, pets or other mess making entities) this will include the bulk of your soft furniture. Mass produced covers never seem to fit quite right or come in the right fabrics. But doing a professional looking cover on something like a chair or couch can be a pretty daunting DIY project for even the craftiest of people. Until now.
Shelley, of Slipcovers By Shelley, is a mom who taught herself how to slipcover and from her experience has built up a successful slipcovering business. And she knows her stuff - check out some of these amazing transformations she's done -

So amazing!! Her "How to Slipcover Video" walks you through the basics of slipcovering and gives you the skills to slipcover just about anything. Shelley is self taught and learned through trial and error over the past 11 years so she's sharing her techniques, tips and shortcuts so the rest of us can do it too. Her dvd is available for purchase here. But today we've got a special giveaway:
