Sofa Make Over

We had a little Sofa Make Over this week. We gave it a new slip, our Sofa has always been gorgeous, but it was time to preserve it a little more, and since I've wanted a cottage white slipcovered sofa, literally since the late '80's, it was time.
 The Green Floral you see is the Vintage Estate Sale Fabric I bought over a year ago, which will be made into new pillow slips.

The view: Sorry for the foggy day photo, taken with my IPAD
Before: Our very old pretty Beige Damask sofa, when I purchased it I was inspired by one of Rachel Ashwell's photos in her first book. I still love it which is why I wanted to give it a slip, and not re upholster.
Have a wonderful weekend one and all, we are celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary today, we'll be breathing in some Ocean Air, and spending some much needed quality time together. tami
