My addiction to pinterest is a great one! It is very inspiring and has me cooking different things, wearing different outfits and creating a few things also. I saw a post on reupholstering a couch recently on pinterest and it totally inspired me to possibly do this for my own couch or love seat. So I went to Home Depot and bought two big drop cloths at $10 each. I came home and stood there scratching my head trying to figure out where to begin while my husband looked at me like I had gone crazy for attempting this project. I dropped the whole staple gun idea and went back to my sewing roots. After spending every free minute of my entire weekend, almost admitting defeat and having a near meltdown....I did it! Let me just say that this wasn't easy at all. It is very far from perfect ....very far! But it makes me happy! I still have to get some snaps to tighten up the back of the cushion covers but I wanted to go ahead and show a picture of the transformation.....
I left a flap on the couch cushions so that I could remove the covers and wash them if I need to but that is making them move around a little so I am going to get some snap closures to hold it tight on the back. I just love it!
At one time I had some very dark brown slipcovers on both the love seat and the couch. Then I took the cover off of this love seat and just had it on the couch b/c my couch and love seat totally do not match. Now I am able to finally get rid of the couch slipcover b/c it has the same cream colored base as my new drop cloth covered love seat!
I don't think you can beat a $20 furniture makeover!!!
