We got some new furniture which you got a sneak peak of a few days ago.
Lately I’ve been horrible at taking “before” pictures. This time it isn’t my fault. It is my mom’s fault. I bought these rattan couches several weeks ago and I think she got tired of seeing the ugly fabric and volunteered to help me recover the cushions. Who was I to say no to free labor so I let her take one cushion to make a pattern. Next thing I know, she was leaving my house with two cushions and the entire bolt of fabric. After that it just snowballed into all of the cushions leaving before I could show you how 80s-tastic they were.
I even went as far as emailing the person from Craigslist whom I bought them from. No luck. Their PC crashed bringing all of the vintage goodness with it. Think of the Golden Girls at the peak of the 80s sprawled out on the bad boys. Although I didn’t manage a picture of the entire ensemble, I managed to take this picture of the cushions.
I kid about my mom taking the cushions to quickly. I was the first one to help load them into her car. I am so thankful that she and my dad decided to stay home during her vacation. As a result, she had a lot of spare days and decided to take on this project for me. She is way more meticulous and nit picky than I am so you can imagine how well the recovered cushions turned out. Imagine no longer, here they are.
My only contribution to the project was making the throw pillows. She asked me to make them for both couches so they wouldn’t look so plain, but I only had two pillow forms. I have extra fabric and more pillow forms on the way. The rattan was in great shape so we left it au natural. I have a few more ideas to make it an outdoor living area and I hope to finish soon. I just have to buy the rest of this stuff.
Don’t forget: Today is the last day to sign up for the free pillow covers. Go to this post for deets.
