I realized I missed that furniture from 3 years ago – not the actual furniture but the fact that it was WHITE. I had slipcovered those couches and a chair and I loved the all white.
The drop cloth fabric I used to slip cover the couch we bought to replace the one we gave away, wasn’t pure white.
And every house out there in blogland that I swooned over was WHITE. I needed to get my house back to more white.
This was the only piece back then that wasn’t white. I thought about slip covering it but really wanted to reupholster it. I stripped it down a year or so ago and it sat neglected for months. I finally took it to the Springfield flea this past fall and sold it to a lady who was excited about giving it a new life.
This year I finally have my all WHITE look back. I made some slipcovers out of pure white fabric. I gave away the couch that was slip covered in the drop cloth that wasn’t pure white. I still have some tweaking to do – I would like to add a bit more furniture. Either a large leather chair like my husband has always wanted or a couple smaller leather chairs. But for now I’m just happy to have it white again. And no, I don’t worry about stuff happening to my white. White is so washable. If all else fails – bleach it. And it doesn’t get as dirty as fast as you would think. I’ll be posting about my living room furniture soon. For now I hope you enjoyed the stroll down memory lane through my house as it looked 3 years ago.
