Sneak peek


I spent the entire weekend on a project I've been putting off for five years - slipcovering my enormous dingy off-white sofa.

Sunday night I collapsed from exhaustion with two seams left to go on one seat cushion. (Four back pillows still need done, too.)

Will give you more details when I get it all done. In the meantime, look at the difference!

    Whoa - are these yellow things uncovered cushions or really what your old sofa looked like?

    Looks great so far, wow

  2. They are what the old sofa looked like. Techincally, they are somewhat uncovered cushions. The sofa came with a slipcover years ago, which we eventually removed when it got too dingy to clean.

  4. You've done a GREAT JOB! I know I should invest into doing that instead of thinking about getting a new couch. Cream + Kids = NEGATIVE!

  7. It was a ton of work but now that I am no longer aching from it, I'm so glad I did it. Will post how-to details when I get it done.
