Loveseat redo!!

This is the after picture of the love seat/hidabed. The plaid pillows are from the couch, Which is the exact same as the pillows. This blue matches perfectly plus will hold up better to the children. The ottoman fabric color I think looks good with it, So I did not recover it, But it does need to come off and be cleaned, The kids loveeee the ottoman.

This was the before picture of the love seat/hidabed. It was my first try at recovering. It was okay, I loved the fabric until I put it on, Then I did not like it and it matched nothing. But there were holes in the couch before this, And I did not have the money for new heavy duty fabric, So this did in a pinch.

I have made part of my "Keep busy list" during next month's "NO SPENDING". Here is what I have so far.....
1. Plant more seeds
2. Start getting lumber etc. for the raised beds.

5. Paint living room a coffee color.
6. Make new drapes for living room with material bought at walmart closeout sale.
