in the meantime, i have been obsessing over slipcovering the couch. we have a 2 piece sectional. it's green. it has served us well for many years. it was one of the first purchases papa smurf and i made together when we moved in many moons ago. it's really comfortable. i won't lie. in fact, papa and i can each lay down on our couch while watching a movie. it makes for a very homey couch for snuggling on rainy days or watching freshly fallen snow while sipping cocoa.
however, it is green. i don't really like it. i want a new couch. i can't justify spending the money on a new couch. there are about 95 bajillion other things to do with our money than buy a new couch. oh...the thought has crossed my mind though. several times.
instead of a new couch, i settled on some $10 dropcloths from home depot and a $2 bottle of bleach!
somehow, i though that it was entirely possible to transform my 2 piece green monster into a svelte little baby like this!!
i will sip some tea while bleaching and trying to locate my sewing machine which has gone m.i.a. in fact, i'm really not quite sure that i ever had a sewing machine or knew how to sew in the first place. wish me luck. other bloggers make sewing slipcovers look so darn easy!
