It's been almost a year since the fire, and I saw no sense in washing my slipcovered sofa until the dust had settled. For the most part, it has. The denim covers, however looked a little pale.
So let's do the sensible thing and just get it all done at once, shall we?
First, The Teen Minions removed all if the slipcovers, and we freshened the cushions with Spring Rain Room Spray and let them air out. That took care of the faint scent of smoke.
I wrangled the eddies of fabric into three piles...
...and called in the big guns.
Several hours later, we had a fresh deep blue sofa again, and we're ready for Family Movie Night. Care to join us?
Let's lower the lights a little and I'll give you a mini tour. And yes, that dresser still needs to be redone, but I think it may just stay right here as the sofa table
The area is tight, which I why I chose a sectional. It gives everyone plenty of room to stretch out together while gathering us and defining the space and creating a seperate entryway. I like slipcovers because spills, rough housing, animals, and nacho incidents are no match for my washer, and denim because of its casual beach house vibe and superior durability. Repairs are easy, and if something can't be fixed, I can just whip up a new piece on the sewing machine.
The TV cabinets were from Target. I liked their sleek look and the clutter-busting storage they provide.
The dye job really breathed life back into color.
We ran a power strip under the sofa so that the kids can plug in anywhere, because although homework is serious business, designing costumes while chatting on Skype is not.
In the top left, you'll see an unsettled corner of my life.
I'm working on it!
So, how are we doing here?
