My Next Big Project

We have been given a love seat and sofa to use in our semi formal living room (is anything formal with kids?).
I love the shape but they desperately need recovered. I am too intimidated to reupholster them, so I will be attempting to make a slipcover. Any tips?
PS. Don't you love our royal blue carpet, yeah me too ;o)


  1. My mom helped me makeover our turquoise leather couch. It was something between a slip cover and re-upholstery. She sewed new covers for the cushions but just had elastic strips on the bottom so we could just slip them on. We attached the main couch cover with a staple gun and a little hot glue. I can take some pictures with better explainations if you like.

  2. That would be great Mary!


I love to hear from YOU!
