Thrift Shop Shakedown Challenge with Artsy Chicks Rule {& We made a Video!}


Well hello, awesome Friends! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I've spent the last few days decking the halls around here, and we are almost done! Today I'm sharing something non-Holiday related, but FUN!  You may or may not know that one of my blogging besties is Nancy from Artsy Chick's Rule. She lives less than 30 minutes from me, and she and I have very similar styles as far as our décor and what we blog about. She's a thrifty gal after my own heart! You may remember seeing … [Read more...]

How to make custom cushion covers with Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer

Hello there and welcome to part two of my Sectional Slipcover Tutorial: Covering the Cushions! If you missed part one, you can catch up here. There is nothing unique about covering sectional cushions verses sofa cushions, except maybe that the cushions may not all be created equal as often is the case with a standard sofa. For this reason I measured each sectional cushion individually, so each cover is custom to that cushion. That accounts for the very tailored fit my cushions … [Read more...]
