My love for drop cloths knows no bounds. Is that how the saying goes? Originally I started off with this floral loveseat. At the time I couldn’t decide if it was ugly or cool. Hm I still don’t know.

Then I took a simple drop cloth and draped it over. Tada!

Before update

I really liked how it looked then and it worked. But I’ve been bit by the decorating bug! I don’t know if it’s the flowers and the sun, but I’ve been wanting to change things up a bit. We are currently under a HUGE project right now, so anything new I did had to be extremely cheap or free. Okay, so free.

Plus the whole draping thing didn’t work anymore. Winston thought it was fun to get stuck underneath it. Extreme dog lovers will think this is cute. Non-dog lovers will be glad they don’t have one. You know who you are.

O? And who’s Winston? Newest addition to our family! He’s a 4 month old puppy, and he’s a retriever/terrier/lab mix.


Currently he just peed in the house so I put him right outside (potty training 101). Sometimes I think he pees just so he can go outside. Not this time though. He’s doing a pathetic bark/yelp like someones hurting him because he wants to come inside. O please Winston, you’re fine. I’m halfheartedly shouting out “no” through the screen door but I don’t think it’s doing anything. He and I both know I’m going to come get him soon so we don’t become that family on the block.

It’s like Winston knows exactly what will irk me because every time I come into the living room he takes all the pillows off the couch. Why? WHYY???

But he’s not all frustration and annoyance. Sometimes he looks at you like this:
And wants to join in on family prayer time:

Anyways, this is a home post, not a dog post! (Maybe I’ll do one of those?)

So with a staple gun and a tug here and there this happened:

I love it! It looks so dainty and frenchy. I can’t tell you how I did it, because I don’t know how I did it. I just pulled and twisted until it looked good to me. Now, it looks like a place where you want to sit and have some tea. That’s a success to me.
How secure is it? It passed the sit and talk test. But I wouldn’t have a pillow fight on it or anything.
Can you still wash it? In this version you can take the seat covers off and wash them. That’s probably all that’d get messy anyways.

    Very creative! What a good idea. Can’t wait to see the next project updates.

    Lol my favorite part: Extreme dog lovers will think this is cute. Non dog lovers will be glad they don’t have one. You know who you are.
