Anyway, slipcover #2 came about a couple of years ago, right before B's birth, I think. Today I noticed that it probably couldn't stand another run through the washing machine and that elbow grease and upholstery cleaner weren't going to get a couple of stains out. I pretty much refuse to buy a new couch until we can either a.) be sure that our kids won't puke, spill, color, put muddy feet on it or b.) afford to buy one that's leather or some other easy to wipe clean material. So it was off to Home Goods to get another slipcover. I had every intention of getting another cream colored one, or maybe tan. I ended up giving my living room a mini-makeover.
People, this was not intended to be my Sunday afternoon. And because it wasn't my intention, I didn't take any before pictures. So bear with me. Here's a cell phone pic from several months ago that shows the color of slipcover #2, which is pretty much the color of the original couch.
B's little black Kritter chair (from Ikea) fits right in with the Cracker Barrel rocker my parents got C when she was not quite 2. I'm really loving the black and white theme. I also went ahead and did our mantle up for fall.
We're all about impromptu in our family anyway. Thursday after school, we had an impromptu ice cream date.
