A couple of weeks ago I shared with everyone how I was taking part in the Impossibilities Challenge.
My little sofa make-over may end up being impossible after all (basically due to lack of time and energy), but I thought I would share my progress with everyone.
My project is to bring some life back to my boring sofa (without breaking the bank)…
The first part of my mission was to find a bold floral print fabric without spending a fortune. I found some great options at JoAnn, but some of them were $40 a yard! Eek. I was hoping to get 2 yards. I decided to take a trip to the Loomcraft Warehouse that’s about 1/2 hour away from our house. This place is awesome! I raved about it before when I was in search of the perfect dining room chair fabric.
Check out all the options…
And all of them were less than $15 a yard. I ended up with the last one because I liked the dark brown background, and I think it will look great on the sofa.
I also found a remnant for $2.50 that was almost exactly the color and texture of the original sofa so this will come in very handy.
My master plan is to replace the back cushions on the current couch. I have some sewing to do!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun and/or crafty? What do you have planned for the week ahead?
