This all really started with the love seat I found at a thrift store for 35 bucks.  I knew it was Ikea cuz I was looking at getting it that weekend.  So problem solved.

it was a little boring so I threw a red blanket over it.



[AH MESS!!! :-[]


so while at my sisters wedding, we found a fabric store going out of business. So I went in and found this upholstery fabric was like 5 bucks a yard with the compliment fabric to go with it.


I ending up with this and a new wall design, but thats another post.
