I love a good before and after...


I mentioned before that my sister and I have been working on re-designing her front room. The room is starting to take shape and I am loving the direction that it's going. Before her front room had a lot of dark tones and had a "heavier" feel. She wanted to lighten things up and head towards achieving a more modern and refreshing feel.
The existing couch is in great shape so my sister wanted to re-purpose the couch rather than spend the money on a new one. In many cases, furniture may just need a little face lift to breath new life into a space and this is exactly what happened. My sister enlisted the help of the talented Shelly to makeover her couch with new cushion slipcovers to go over the existing ones and to make these gorgeous pillows. I think she did an excellent job! I'm excited to show you the rest of the room we're getting really close to being done.

AFTER...




Don't you think it feels good to reuse existing furniture pieces? I have been really happy with my rocking chair and love seat makeover done by the talented Katie. This has been the year of slipcovers and upholstery.

Hands down that is THE most amazing sofa slipcover ever. Excuse me, I have to go pick my jaw up off the floor.
