Our objective at Slips and Sills is to provide a service that satisfies each of our clients' individual tastes and preferences. Our service is building custom slipcovers, pillows, and draperies. We provide a consultation and then work to achieve the creative vision of our clients by building the desired product.


Change the look and feel of your room, without buying new! Slipcovers allow you to adapt to the seasons, by switching your couch cover from light to dark, or simply remaining neutral and switching your throw pillows. Our slipcovers are removable, durable, and washable. They are custom-made to meet your every need and desire. Whether you have children, pets, or simply enjoy the odd glass of red wine, Slipcovers are the way to go to keep your living room looking fresh and new. We cover anything from bar stools and banquettes, to love seats and ottoman’s. So keep one Sofa off the curb, and come see us for your custom made Slipcover.

Window Treatments

If you want to add some classical style to your home, we can’t recommend Roman Blinds highly enough. They are versatile, convenient and elegant. When compared to drapes, the Roman Blind makes your room look three times larger. Get the luxurious appearance of draping curtains combined with the convenience of the blinds. The beauty of a Roman Blind is that you can make it out of any material you like. We offer several different styles, and strive to remain up to date with the latest trends in home design. So put away your old drapes, or recycle the fabric, and come see us at Slips and Sills for your custom Roman blinds.


Do you have a piece of furniture that’s out of the ordinary? A real masterpiece in disguise? Maybe you have a piece that’s simply taking up much-needed space in your home or garage, and you know you’ll never get around to fixing it up yourself. Slips and Sills will either purchase your piece, or do the restoration for you We work to restore the original appearance of a piece and bring it back to life. It can be as simple as removing dirt and grime, or completely rebuilding recovering. So please dust off your old classics and give us the chance to bring a masterpiece back to life. Send us a picture to arrange a price, and the pick up or drop off of your piece.


  • Slips and Sills by Mary Mills did a wonderful job on my new roman shades. I’m very particular and I had something specific in mind. Mary assured me we could accomplish it and now it looks better than I had hoped for! Mary was prompt, professional and a dream to work with. I will call her again for my future projects. -Sally Herman, Montreal, Quebec

  • “Mary Mills delivers the project with complete satisfaction. Her website is admirably well presented; it reflects the style and the quality of work she has done.
    Mary Mills has everything to win your heart along with any prospective projects, either of mine or of yours. Many thanks.”

  • We employed Mary from Slips and Sills in 2012 to make a custom slip cover for our sofa. She set to work quickly and competently right in our home and completed the job within two short days. She was very professional and easy to work with. We would recommend Mary and her company, Slips and Sills to all of our family and friends and hope to use her services ourselves again someday if needed.
