I did initially hesitate because it was sort of expensive. It is however pretty discolored beyond my ability to fix, and the print really does make me want to go cross-eyed. If not for the discoloration I would sell it or Freecycle it.
Making a slipcover would just bring me back to my initial plan, which I have since realized is too expensive and more time than I want to put in (I have a LOT of home decor projects on my list, I've just moved).
I am contemplating buying the cheapest cover Ikea has and coffee dying it (I figure I could spend 50 dollars on fabric anyways, mine as well let them make it for me.)
Girl has 2 sewing machines and still doesn't want to make a cover herself....figures, haha.
If I do decide to make something though, I will definitely let you know if I have any questions, thank you for the offer : )
