In case you can't tell....I am whispering. I don't want my husband to hear.
Here's the dealio. My LR sofa had gotten pretty much trashed the last few years with my dogs. Gotta love em...but they will mess up yo stuff.
There is this one side right by the window where Zipper likes to stand...waiting for SOMEBODY to come home. Anybody.....I just want my peeps here. BUT.....while I am here let me rub up against and slobber all over this sucker.
Here is the deal.....I decided to put a sheet over it about 2 weeks ago. Like I was trying to protect it :) That was just to trick the eye.....because I had something in mind.
Before I got the dogs, I was all ready to recover it in white linen.
Bought the fabric and everything....but for some good reason I could not pull the trigger on that one.
So I had it done in a brown linen.
Thank you Jesus.
But....I could not take it anymore so I called my slipcover guy Jim Brown.
He is the one I told you about who comes to your house and does it. Brilliant.
Here she be. At first I was thinking I would paint the legs black and have no skirt. But....I am a little old school in the fact that nothing else has a skirt in the room...so I needed the softness.
We cut off the skirt to help me visualize.
This is the same sofa I have had for 20 years.
Here is the before from that long ago.
It was all tufted madness. So I had those puppies removed [5 years ago]. Yeah...I know...tufting is BACK. But people....seriously dust and other critters will get caught in those holes.
Jim started at 9:00 AM. Here he is pinning and cutting.
Meanwhile I had to run a few errands.
I happened to be in the West End area of Atlanta and well I popped into Jonathan Adler. Lookie what I saw......
Very similar to this from the Atlanta Show House.
See those furry benches???? Oh by the way, this is the last week to go! It closes on Sunday.
Here are a few pictures that I left out from the first time around.
The guest retreat designed by Christy Dillard Kratzer and Heidi Pierce.
Can you see that wallpaper?
Another view. The wallpaper people....
Believe me when I say...you must go. Now. Today.
Oh yeah...I am really bouncing here.
Back to JA.
I am loving this sofa....the arms...the legs.....
The tufted look...I know...I know....don't get me wrong....I love the way it looks.
I love this fun chair. Man cave.....
Oh yeah...back to the sofa.
He brings everything. Even his lunch.
3:30...finished. 6 1/2 hours. Smack down.
That is all you are getting until I get it all fluffed up.....
It is still covered with a sheet :)

On another note....here is a before picture of a bath I am working on....
I guess you could say....we got some work to do here....
I got this picture from Jenna Sue. They did this on a budget so go check it out! Only problem is this vanity [which comes with the sinks is 59"].
Needs to be a double vanity. 58 stinkin inches. Most every one I have found is 59. Might have to go custom.
Like how I went from slipcovers, to the show house, to Jonathan Adler, to bathrooms. That's how I roll.
What chu up to today????
I am on beach countdown....5 days.
