Updating a sofa dating women from russia
It wasn’t super-stylish–that skirt screams –but it was way more comfortable than the sleeper-sofa and the price was right. A perfect match is a fantasy, and I needed a couch for the real world and our real life. The last time I needed to wash the cushion covers, I just gave up and threw the batting away.It was too much trouble for a poor solution to the problem.And, she decided that she wanted the covers to fasten with buttons. It took a bit of experimenting, but she was able to do it!This positive growth experience increased her feelings of affection for the sofa. She read about how some other bloggers removed the skirts from their sofas, but that wouldn’t work for hers.Then I found the sofa we have now at Salvation Army for 5.00. The fabric isn’t faded, stained, snagged, or ripped. Oh, I tried stuffing them with batting (like you can see in the photo above)–but then they were just a stiff, bulky mess.
She was excited by this idea, and she found an on-sale linen floral fabric that coordinated with the existing upholstery and the wool rug in her living room.I’m strong, and I’ve held up well under three kids and those two little dogs. They still haven’t forgiven her for getting rid of the brown chair–and they gave her no end of grief when she replaced him with that green retro number she thought was all that. They love to work themselves down into my cushions and sit there for hours.I know my back cushions are a disappointment to her. I give them a good perch from which to watch the street.Further, she decided that she would use the fabric from the original cushions for the backing fabric.She thought this would make the new cushions look as if they were made for the sofa, and it meant she didn’t need as much of the new fabric.
