{ csn slipcovers save the day! }


Wow, it's the middle of summer already - unbelievable! One of my little goals for the summer was to gradually start re-decorating my living room. I am so inspired by The Nester's beautiful home and am hoping to incorporate a few of her touches into my living room. I would copy it exactly if I could! So far I have given away my 1996 over-stuffed over-sized couch and love seat and got a free couch from my Aunt. I love the shape of the couch and it's in perfect condition, but the upholstery didn't exactly go along with my dream living room. So, I decided to use my latest gift certificate from CSN Stores to order a white/natural slipcover for this couch and matching ones for 2 of our dining room chairs. I am happy to say that I've received the slipcovers (they arrived by Purolator Courier yesterday! woohoo) and they look just as nice in person as they did online.

I also purchased an arm chair with matching ottoman for only $90 on craigslist and would like to either re-upholster it or purchase a slipcover for it as well. The current upholstery isn't bad, but once again doesn't go with what I'm dreaming of. lol I also plan to paint the living room, replace the curtains, paint the coffee table and entertainment unit. I am thinking this will turn into a fall & winter project, though! Summer is running out too fast!


PS. I would take pics of my re-decorating progress, but my silly Sony 4.1 Mega Pixels Cyber-shot camera is permanently on the fritz and a new one is not yet in the budget! So annoying.
