New Sofa Cover!

We bought our Ektorp corner lounge a few years back from Gumtree, it comes with washable white with blue flowers covers. Having 2 kids, washable means a lot but white is just too much work. The sofa looks more brown even though I tried washing them a couple of times.




Hasben was suddenly very excited in making over the house after watching some reality show on TV. He was keen on changing our lounge covers but finding out they cost $409 in Ikea, it was a bit of a let down. So we tried our luck on Gumtree and miraculously, we found this red cover in NSW. The seller was very nice and was willing to post the whole bundle to us! Mind you, the total weight was more than 8kg!

We waited excitedly over the weekend for the postie to arrive, and when he finally did, it was like opening a birthday present!




The lounge now looks awesome (Thanks Kelli!) and I even refurbished our old cushions. I combined 2 cushions into 1 to make it look more fluffy and bought this black-white furniture fabric from Spotlight ($6/m clearance).




I spent the whole afternoon today making the cushion covers and loved the end result. Hopefully, any chocolate stains will not be too visible against the dark red of our new lounge :) Our next makeover project will probably be the guest room... Hmm...
