My sister is in China. They are bringing home the newest member of their family soon. Their family is amazing. I wanted to do something – a slipcover seemed like the most obvious solution. Really, a slipcover? I know. She leaves the country and I re-decorate her home. It definitely won’t help their transition, but maybe it will be a little “treat” for her when she gets home.
This was her sofa before – I did this slipcover several years ago before I knew what I was doing – we just kind of jumped in. She’s had this sofa forever. We thought it was on it’s way out when the bottom caved in. That’s when we found another sofa and slipcovered it in some great black denim. In the meantime, this one sat on the outskirts of their family room until one day Dad came by with some boards and built up the base. Good as new. The only problem now – it didn’t match the other sofa. I know, real dilemmas . . . .
There are more ways than one to end up with a “matching set.”
