I've just finished re-covering my couch! Hooray!! It's been half finished since before Adele was born, so I knuckled down and got cracking on the final pelmet cover.
The lounge was a pebble coloured microsuade which the kids were trashing beyond belief. Last winter I paid to have it cleaned and it cost way over $300 and was trashed again within a week.
So, time for action - the cost for the fabric, which is an awesome Warwick upholstery fabric, was $400, cotton $10, velcro $25 and voila - new couch which successfully hides small spills, slobber and mashed banana. The covers are also fully removable so they can be washed up in the machine too.
Now no more distractions - must get onto those orders.....
