You know you've been dying to see it

The amazing couch transformation!!

I am mortified to admit that this is what my great-grandmother's couch looked like after 15 years in the care of my feline bebes. But you can still see how great is was, no? I love this couch. It's way cool vintage.


And now, voila! All better. Check it - stripey cushions to add a little punk rock to my dreamy, sagey cottagey couch. Ya know, cuz I'm a rebel like that.


And what will go so perfectly with this darling sofa, one asks one's self? (Yeah. One did. Don't deny.) These. And/or these.

A whole week and this is all you get for right now: a glimpse into my decorating greatness. Hee.

And a belated Happy Mother's Day to all! (Including those whose children are furry and have to have their poop either scooped or picked up off the sidewalk in a baggie. I might have a human child, but I got the preciousfurrypurry kind, too.)

Wow! At first I thought the cushions didn't match, but when you see the pillows with it the whole thing changes. Where did you come up with the idea to do it this way?

I've always liked the cottagey look of couches with multi Fabric upholstery, but I thought that the couch was slightly too formal for a several different fabrics, and I love stripes!
I'm glad you like it, since you grew up with it. :-)

Yes, I did grow up with it. First at grandma's, then Mom & Dad's, then I had it for a number of years, then back to Grandma and now you! It had several different fabrics on it over the years.

I like what you've done! I just got to pull off my cat scratched slip covered chair and reveal a nice purple velvet chair underneath. Yipee!

Oooo, purple velvet! Preeeety!!

I'm on total water bottle patrol around my couch to stave off scratch attacks. And I'm being quite free with the cat repellent.

I am not much of a help, I think both sets of pillows look great

Dawn: I think I won't choose and I'll just get all three. Not that I love them all!

Uh. I don't know why I wrote "not". Because I DO love them all. I'm a dingbat.
