Your Slip Is Showing....

I'm back with a tad more of operation spruce up the basement. David and I want our basement area to be a comfortable place for our family and friends when they're over visiting and swimming at our backyard pool. And the room's current garage-like status just isn't cutting it. So, we've decided to do a few quick little makeovers to the space before the summer gets underway.

Meet our fifteen year old couch. While adorable and comfortable, she needs a little help.


Add a trip to Target and a whopping $60 later and now we're sitting a bit prettier in the basement!


Please bear with me and pretend like I pulled the iron out. I know the slipcover is, um, totally wrinkly. It's just been one of those weeks and I just didn't get to it before I snapped these pics. Actually, these shots were from our test run- I promise some lovely finished photos soon! Finished what? You'll just have to hold tight, because that's going to be an exciting surprise! Well, exciting if you're like me and a trip to Home Depot is "exciting." I know I'm not the only DIY dork around here!

Purdy cute for $60 smackers, right? And it makes such a big difference. Imagine if it was ironed....


For further proof that it's been another one of "those" weeks....


The best picture of me, ev-er. Happy Thursday, friends!!

  5. Love it, oh, and ironing is overrated. It's just going to get wrinkled again when you sit on it. Can't wait to see your changes!

  6. Ha! Love your shirt though! And the slip cover is a perfect backdrop for some great pillows and will really extend the life of that couch. Great find.

  7. Interesting!

    I've really been contemplating doing this to our couch. I really hate to invest in new furniture right now, and I'm really sick of looking at what we have...maybe this could be a save...for a while atleast.

  8. I think it looks great! Even sans ironing, but I also hate to iron with a passion so perhaps I'm just used to the look?

    Anyhoo, looks great! The weekend is nearly here!

  9. I have too many pics of myself like that last one, haha. Don't you love going through pics on your computer and finding stuff like that? LOL. The slipcover looks great though and I think it will definitely make the basement more inviting for your guests. Those pillows are pretty too. =)

  11. I have a love/hate relationship with our slipcover. It was super wrinkley at first but straightened out with some quality couch time : )

  12. I have the same slip cover on your couch at school! Except mine comes off all the flipping time because A. my roommates don't care and B. the couch is too small for the cover! Yours looks perfect...minus some ironing (; Loving the pillows!
