My husband and I bought this couch from a thrift store when we got married seven years ago.  It was ugly then, but in good shape.  Seven years later, it's ugly and falling apart.  One day while browsing my favorite blogs, the clouds parted as I stumbled across the wonder and glory that is The White Slipcover.  I watched Youtube videos, read countless tutorials, and finally mustered up the courage to attempt to create a white slipcover of my own.  With my own two hands and a couple packs of white dropcloth, a white slipcover was made!  Was it a long and treacherous journey?  Heck to the yes it was!  But I'm super glad it's done.  Even my skeptical hubby, who typically, bless his heart, nearly hates everything I've created for our home, has told me how much he loves our "new" couch. 

I now find myself wanting to rid our house of all other possessions just to refill it with white slipcovered furniture.  This. is.  bad.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
