i love love getting email! i receive questions, compliments, suggestions....i love it all!
one of the most common questions is regarding the white slipcovers on our sofas.
sofa set #1
this is the loveseat from the set.
when we moved we brought our red floral couches with us.
they are really pretty they just don't
really go with the look i am going for in this house.
so rather than spend a fortune on reupholstery,
i opted to try slipcovers.
(the picture below is from our previous home)
the loose, white slipcovers are from wal-mart. you heard it hear first. wal. to the mart.
they are the classic sofa slipcover. if the link doesn't work in the future,
hopefully you can just search that name.
they do have a subtle stripe through them (white) and don't
fit my couches as tightly as the picture online...but they do the job.
and for the price point and one cent shipping it was worth it.
so if you see LOOSE white slip covers in my posts they're the wal-mart ones :)
sofa set #2
if you see TIGHT slip covered couches in my posts...these are from ikea.
yes, they get dirty. yes, you need to wash them. :)
the loose covers are easy to pull off and throw in my washing machine.
so far with the tight, ikea covers we have just spot cleaned them. eventually,
this white set may move to the downstairs family room to fulfill a "beachy" look.
at that point we will put some pieces that are a darker shade with more texture,
but until then i love these up here!
i don't mind a little smudge here and there, but that's just me :)
