So. Let's all pretend that it's only been a week (and not an entire year) since I last posted. It's not like you missed much - basically we're still working on all of the projects that we were last year at this time. Let's not focus on the whys. Let's focus on some random positives, m'kay?
We made some progress on our ugly side entryway this weekend. We sanded, caulked, primed, and painted a lot of trim. It was the most boring project of all time but we muscled through and got it done. Finally! My last post about it was in December of 2015!!!!!
I have eight more days to eat glorious, unhealthy food (mmm cheese, I love you chocolate, two heaping teaspoons of brown sugar in my coffee you are my BFF) before I am back on the kale-eating-wagon.
Back to the couches. We have had white, slip-covered Ikea couches for eons. I loved them. I raved about them. I washed them a lot. After something like twelve years, I gave up. My two ninja-like children seemed to find any and every way to get their grubby peanut butter fingers on them whenever I wasn't looking. It just became too. much. work. to keep them clean. About a month ago, my world was turned upside down. We ordered light beige slipcovers from Ikea.
Light beige. So weird. Here is a picture of the cover from the Ikea website. They are the Ektorp sofa covers and the colour is called Lofallet Beige.
They are really nice. I'm still getting used to them though! And I want to shout from the rooftops that the few marks and stains that the covers have acquired since we got them (those children again, ahem) have come clean with a baby wipe.
I'd love to take some pictures of the new couch covers but we've got a bit of a Christmas explosion to deal with first. Maybe next week when I'm on holidays I can clean it all up? Bahahahahaha. That was funny.
By the way, how've you been?
