I don’t know if I’m the first to ever do this but I thought you may want to know how I bought drop cloths from Lowes and covered my sofa with them, maybe you have a sofa that you are tired of and would like to try it too.
My sofa is blue denim and more then 10 years old and it’s still going strong, in fact I don’t think it will ever wear out! I’m tired of the blue so I decided to cover it with a slipcover BUT my sofa is so big 96” long and that’s the problem I have with it. The only slipcover that would fit is from Pottery Barn at $179.00… not happening!!!I knew there had to be a way to deal with this problem, I just had to figure it out! So I bought the largest drop cloth that Lowes had, it cost about $25.00 and (I’ve washed it about 3 times so it’s starting to get soft.) threw it over my couch, immediately I liked the off white look. Then the other day I happened to find that I had a smaller dropcloth in my stash and wondered if I could use it to cover just the seat cushions. here’s how it turned out!
You can see how huge the arms are!
You can see how I covered the seat cushions with the drop cloth I found.
My husband lays on the sofa almost every evening and all I have to do is smooth it out, doesn’t really come out of where I have it tucked in!
I think it has pulled the livingroom together and it only cost me $25.00!
Here is my diningroom without the bookcase in it. Gives us a lot more room.
I also changed the top of my step back cupboard…change is good:)
