I found this slipper chair at an estate sale many years ago for $5.00.  The fabric was rather dated and needed some help. 
Since I was veering away from the off white furniture in my great room, I found this fabulous fabric at my fabric store. In light in a taupe room, it comes off greige.  In a blue room, it comes off as a cool pewter.
It is a beautiful pewter colored chenille. It has a very good price of $20.99 per yard..  That is fantastic when you are looking for a well wearing upholstery fabric.
A close up.
My great slipcover lady sewed this cover.  It is a great seat for the bathroom vanity. 
The chair blends well with the taupe bathroom tile.
I think it brings a great texture to the master bathroom.
I have also used the leftover chenille in making auction projects.  I think this fabric has become my new matelassé.
If you are interested in this fabric, I found it at King Cotton Fabric Store in Huntsville, AL.
