Replacing our purple sofa that has been a little too loved has been high on our priority list since we moved into our farm house. But, between thousands of dollars of unexpected home repairs and our college student budgets, buying a new sofa has not been a feasible option. We decided that maybe a slipcover would be a good interim fix, but even slipcovers are pretty expensive. Well, when I found a Pottery Barn slipcover in my local swap group, I was a little more than excited to work out a deal.
Wrangling it over the purple sofa was quite a task. It kind of made me think of trying to fit someone's skin over every crevice of a different person's body. But eventually, we got it on. And I am pretty impressed. Sure, it's not a new sofa. But for $30, it makes a pretty big impact!
Please ignore the post-Christmas toy craziness lurking in the corner. We are in the process of some major toy organizing here. And I need to make some pillows, but it's getting there. It makes me much happier to sit in the living room now. = ) It's a good feeling.
Have you ever tried a slipcover as a temporary or permanent fix?
