I know it has been quiet here on the blog, but it has been busy, busy, busy, here at home! This week I have finally got to all of that spring cleaning that I wanted to do while I was on bedrest. OH MY GOODNESS. It feels soooo good! I washed all of the curtains, bedspreads/quilts, slipcovers, and pillows. We cleaned all of the windows, baseboards, under beds. I cleaned out couch and chair cushions, closets, drawers, cabinets....You get the idea. My goal was for my house to look as clean and fresh as it did when we first moved in (it was brand new!). I was cleaning cracks with a toothbrush people!
Now that it's done I'm wanting to do a few things to spiff up the decorations a bit. I haven't really done much since we first moved in 8 years ago, and I need a change. I know for sure that I want to slipcover my couch. I have two couches in my living room, one I covered a while back, and the one that's left needs to be done now. It is so nasty! I think I want to cover it in a neutral so that if I want a change all I have to do is change the pillows and I can have any look I want quickly. (Here are a couple of examples.)
I'm trying to find some decorator weight fabric in a khaki or light beige color that is cheap (price not quality). I was surprised to find very few solids in decorator weight fabrics when I looked today. Does anyone know if any of the big stores like Hancocks or Joannes will let you use the 40% or 50% off coupon on that much fabric? I'm wanting to spiff up some other rooms too, cheap DIY style, do you have any favorite projects or links? I can't wait to hear from you guys! This is going to be fun! xo, Sam
