Remember back a few weeks ago when I was talking about ordering a slipcover? I couldn’t believe all the feedback and advice I got. It seems like everyone’s got an opinion on this matter.
Well, I went ahead and ordered one, and I ordered one that most people suggested I didn’t get, which was my favorite.
Well, you see, I’ve never had a slipcover on anything before, so I guess the advice just wasn’t making sense to me. And I love plaid, and wanted to look at lots of it. And I know they always say to do a neutral slipcover and then add patterned pillows, but that just seems like it would take a lot of time or money to get enough nice ones.
And I wanted my sofa de-grossified and de-embarrassing-fied like, yesterday.
So this is what it looks like now.
Well, no. This is what it looks like now:
It looks pretty decent until you sit on it. And we’re sofa-sitters around here, so I’ll have to develop a new compulsion to tuck in the sofa every time I walk by. It’s OK. I already compulsively chop the pillows, so I’m there anyway.
So I don’t love it. In fact, when Chris came home he said “Well, that’s a little disappointing, isn’t it?” That’s not what you want to hear.
But I do love parts of it!
I love the fabric. It’s a soft ultra suede and it’s easy to clean. The color and pattern are so fresh and clean looking too.
I love the little ties around it and I love the back view of the sofa coming into the living room.
See? It’s charming from here!
How can it be so un-charming from the front? I think I must be doing something wrong. Any ideas?
Maybe I should go straight to the source and ask Surefit myself.
I’ll keep you updated as the sage continues….
