that you wonder why didn’t occur to you before?
Something so simple and easy
that took just a few minutes to do but made a big difference in how a space looks?
This time the inspired idea was about a new look for the outdoor sitting area
and it involves a re-purpose of sorts
This outdoor area is a favorite spot for our family to sit and relax.
and a place where our family gathers in the evenings
Right now it has a seating group that is made of all weather wicker.
You might remember a few of these pieces-
they were originally around the fire pit and wearing pretty red toile cushions.
I decided I wanted a more neutral look
pretty white cotton slipcover
I have one that we use most of the time
and I like to have a brand new back up set for special occasions
and I left them on the sofa’s and washed and folded up the older ones that weren’t too bad yet
but were going to become the
back up –back up in the closet until a fresh set was purchased.
The more I looked at the living sofa across from me
the end cushions… the seat cushions
and sipped my coffee
it might have been the extra caffeine in that extra cup of Peets
I got those back-up slipcovers out and did a happy dance.
I could hardly believe that they actually fit
They are a little on the loose side- which I love and think slipcovers should be like
and they have been out here for the past month or so
(yes, I know…late sharing Summer projects over here)
I chose the easier, quicker and less expensive way
for $100 total
Even better- I am putting the chunk I saved towards a little something else
I am thinking about
I might have to have an extra cup of Peets more often
