This is my living room a couple of months ago, without my new rug, without my christmas decorations, and minus a chair and with some extra side tables. I'm a mover and a shaker, and things dont stay the same for very long around here
I have 2 white slipcovered chairs and 1 white slipcovered sofa, and 1 off white/tanish slipcovered sofa.
I like to spot treat any little stains, turn over pillows and wash as little as possible. Yesterday it was time to wash them though
So I stripped all my chairs and sofas down, and even took the covers off the throw pillows
My daughter "helped"
I kept yelling "pillow party" and she was diving into the pillows and biting and laughing. To see the world through a childs eyes is a great gift
And I took the extra 3 minutes to clean under the chairs. Books, toys, and dust bunnies love to live here
Have I told you yet that Macaroni is a mountain climber? Thats what we like to say because he loves to climb on the backs of the couches, and hes so athletic, he runs like a bunny
And then he found a good place to lay down
On a serious note, I love slipcovered furniture. With a baby and dog and me being extremely clumsy I love that I can just throw it all in the wash. Its better to wash the whole piece together, because otherwise I find that it'll look different colors. And the real reason I love it so much I guess is because I dont want to be hovering over my family or guests. If something spills, it spills. I choose to enjoy our home and worry less.
