the couch

I know I've talked about my couch before so if you already know this, bear with me. My Mom got new couches for her living room a while back. She offered me the couch that had sat in the living room for 20+ years. It looks almost exactly like this green one but it is cream.

My parents are keeping the couch in a storage space until my husband and I are done with graduate school (much to my Dad's dismay, he tried to get rid of it this week but my sister went to bat for the couch, thank heavens!)

I am continually throwing ideas around in my head about what kind of fabric to have it recovered in. I love the look of the stripes on this love seat. I think this might be a winner!


  1. that is a great choice. It will look fun and fresh .

  2. I like the strips too. I am afraid with the tufted back that the stripes might get a little wonky though.

  3. i think you might want to paint the legs a lighter color then, although it depends on what the rest of your living room looks like (if that's where you're going to put it). i got a great couch like that for $100 at the thrift store a while ago. it's like new and i love it!
