These are the sofas:
(everything you see will change!)
One option is to just buy new sofas. But like I said, I love the size & quality and it would cost a pretty penny for new. Plus, these are only 4 years old.
So here is another option: making my own slipcovers! I did re-upholster a 3-seater sofa in my 20's so I should be able to pull this off. In that experience, the main problems I had were not knowing HOW to finish the back of the seat cushions. I pulled the material, folded it, ran long threads and attached a stretch of elastic! It wasn't pretty. Luckily, no guests ever looked at the backs of the cushions!
But now, that problem is solved! I've met Shelley from Custom Slipcovers By Shelley. She has a business of making custom slipcovers to fit your furniture perfectly - if you live in her area. If you don't, guess what? You can STILL get that perfect slipcover by using her new instructional DVD!
And even better, YOU CAN WIN ONE!
Enter below to win this do-it-yourself DVD worth $48.50.
See what Shelley has done and now you can too!
Here is Shelley working on one...
Her DIY dvd will show you how to fit your sofa with the material inside out...
use piping, make the cushions and add a skirt.
This will be you very soon making your new slipcovers!
