Have I shown you this sofa? I'm willing to bet that at least two of you are going to comment and say, "HEY! I have that same sofa!"
She sits next to this sofa in the new house. In the old house, they were in different rooms and that was good for everyone. Blue denim for the playroom. Earthy green, Ethan Allen floor model for the family room.
The new house has a much bigger family room and the long-term plan was to buy a beautiful sectional. But with the state of things right now, that plan is on long-term hold. So what's a girl to do? They don't look horrible together, but they don't play together all that well either.
How about some new earthy green back pillows for Big Blue (as we call the blue sofa)? I'm not looking for matchy-matchy but they play together much more nicely now.
See? But it's time to hang something on the wall, no?
It's one of my more expensive projects, but for $80, I've got a new look for my sofa that will keep me happy for a long time. That makes hubby happy. And you should know that it wasn't my $80. They were an early birthday gift from my Mom. Thanks Mom! That makes hubby happy too.
The new pillows came from Overstock.com and they're actually floor pillows but they're perfect for this use. An easy and relatively inexpensive way to update an uphostered piece.
