Temporary Solution

March 5th

Couch, recovered recession-like

Add one African-themed throw quilt to the couch and voila!

Temporary solution

A recession-inspired solution that will work just fine for the time being. Thanks for the great suggestions! I see a new couch, paid in cash, in my future…

  1. I like the throw. I was going to suggest Amy Butler’s book Midwest Modern. She has some slip cover type things for inspiration. With all of your fabric-sense and stash you might have some cloth on hand. And, the book is really fun to look at.

  2. Reminds me of a couch I saw in the latest House Beautiful: http://tinyurl.com/cvstp5

    Great solution!

  6. Nicely done!

  7. Looks great! I like how it adds more color too!

  8. I love throws on couches! I always have one. It adds color and protects your couch–the throw is easier to wash than the couch. hehee
