A few updates.

Y'all.  Someone please tell me where January went?!  Seriously!  What happened to it?

A few weeks ago I told y'all about my deal of the year so far.  The $75 Ikea couch.  It came with a white cover that I tried to dye.  There were some problems.  I thought there might be since the fabric was older and had some stains.  Dye is cheap so I wanted to at least try.  My goal was to get a light blue color but it ended up looking like splotchy denim.  Not really the look I was going for.

So yesterday, I ventured into Houston and got a new cover at Ikea.  A little more expensive than dye but the fabric is a better quality than the basic white cover and the color is perfect.

Here is a quick flip I did a few weeks ago and never posted.

And now for something I LOVE.  One of my favorite parts of the job. Seeing made over pieces in their new home!

Do y'all remember the two-tone, baby boy dresser and the small blue end table?  If not read about them here & here.  Well, they are now part of one of the cutest nurseries.  I love that it is decorated with color and not a baby theme.  So cute.

Isn't it great?!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  I am hoping to finish up a great dresser and end tables makeover.  :)

  1. Love the couch cover! I've been thinking of getting one for our older couch. The nursery looks fab! Great furniture makeovers!
