My "New" Sofa

It feels like I have had this red sofa for ever. Actually it has been about 5 years. I am tired of it and want something new unfortunately that is not in the budget for the near future. Today at the thrift store I found a throw/slip cover. It looks exactly like the ones Pottery Barn sells for $99.00. Mine was $13.00 plus tax.

Before. I took this picture with my new phone.
First it looked like this. Needs more tucking....

Better. Getting there.

Final look.
I decided to check out Big Lots for throw pillows. First I was going to Home Goods. Big Lots has some surprisingly nice items and good prices.  Overall I am happy with the way it turned out. Maybe it will keep me satisfied until I can buy a new sofa.  I will be joining Susan for Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Click the button on  my side bar. Thanks for stopping by.
