Welcome my sweet Friends! Do you know what today is? It’s my birthday yippee! Do you know what month usually boasts the most births in the United States? No not September, it’s August, but pretty close! In my family, September is by far the busiest month for birthdays with me, my son, my sister, my dad, My grandfather (resting in peace now), my niece, and two nephews.
Anyway I wanted to put something fun together for my birthday, but I am way more excited about my next DIY adventure, so since it’s my birthday, can I just share that instead?
See this stack of fabric:
That’s four bolts of white bull denim washed and ready to go…for this…
The big brown beast!
I used to have white carpet and a couple of pairs of small sticky fingers roaming around, so the brown made sense. Now that I have my new hardwood floors (see them here), and the small sticky fingers are a bit bigger and much less sticky, I am ready to go lighter and tackle slipcovers for this big thang!
Although people say that a white slip-covered sofa is perfect when you have kids because you can wash the slip covers. There’s no way they’re easier than no maintenance because your sofa is the color of dirt.
So that’s how I’ll be spending my birthday and the next several days.
UPDATE: My slipcovers are done! See the big reveal here now!
If you missed my last birthday, you might enjoy this post I shared last year, Guess who’s turning…how old??, which is a fun look at 43 random facts about yours truly. 🙂
Hope you have a great day!
I’ll be back Thursday sharing what I made with these:
