New Slipcover For My Ikea Sectional + Giveaway

New Slipcover For My IKEA Sectional

Hi friends! I have completed a mini makeover of sorts in my family room, so today I am revealing part 1-the new slipcover for my  IKEA Ektorp sectional!!! I have been working with Comfort Works on this slipcover and I am overjoyed by how it turned out. They do Ikea & Pottery Barn slipcovers as well as custom, to get started you simply select your swatches, they usually arrive in a week or so. They have a beautiful selection of fabrics from linen to velvet. This was the tough part, I wanted a change from the Blekinge White but still wanted it fresh & a little modern.

Decisions, decisions….

Selecting Fabrics

After much debate I decided to go with the Liege/Biscuit, it has a waterproof Nano coating [see video below] which repeals all liquids, as if I needed another reason to love having a slipcover:).  I do like the white look but as soon as I put this new slipcover on, it was love at first sight. And with all of the white in the room, it is a nice contrast.

The slipcovers came in 2 cotton draw-string bags, pretty color, right?!

They were super easy to put on and the bottom of the base cover is a gray ultra-suede, very durable.

I am so thrilled with change in the room, I cant wait to see it all decked out for the holidays. Better yet when my family & friends are drinking red wine in here, I won’t be a nervous wreck, lol.

There were many afternoons spent over coffee debating which fabric to choose.

Once the slipcover was on, I took a spray bottle filled with water and spritzed, I then took my iron and began to steam. It took all of 15 minutes.

  32. excited to know there is good alternative to Pottery Barn for slipcovers for PB upholstered pieces – the swatches look wonderful

  34. That looks great and that is the same fabric I chose years ago. I wish mine had come with that coating since I spilled coffee all over the arm and it ruined it. That coating must be new.

My husband and and I went to IKEA this past weekend (3 hr drive) to test drive the Ektorp and my plan is to purchase this coming week…I’m nervous despite all the good things I hear and my husband (and parents) think I’m nuts to consider white with 3 kids. This source is a good thing…just in case! 🙂 Thanks for the on- going inspiration, you never fail me! Happy Holidays!

  41. We’re looking for a new couch. How has your ikea couch held up so far? Looks nice with the new cover!!

  43. The slip cover I have now is SO bad – it never really fit. I would love to get a better one, but choosing a color is tough.

  44. I actually have a question – your new color is not as white as your other sectional. DO you miss the lighter color?

  45. I NEVER get tired of looking at your rooms! Because of you I have a white Ektorp and it has held up with 4 grandchildren, thanks so much,

  46. Love it! I am going to finally pull the trigger and buy the Ikea sectional. Furniture buy is so hard because it can be very expensive and I do not want to be disappointed.
