How are you friends?
I'm hoping you're doing well and having some fun.
Mr. DIY and I are still working on the "get the house ready to sell" list day and night and on weekends.Today I painted the deck stairs.(the deck is on the second floor since we have a walkout basement) The deck floor is next...and it's my last painting project.
Of course, we didn't forget the front door and sidelights and the posts and arches on the front porch...oh and the deck.
We still have to clean carpets, do a final clear out of the basement and clean/clear out the garage.(and it's awful)
Did I mention this has to be done by the end of this month?
After all that, the house has to be staged to look pretty.
Which brings me to the ottoman in my bedroom.
I bought it several years ago for $30 when it was on sale at Pier One. It really doesn't look good with the chair in my bedroom the way it is and there may have been an little run in with some of Mr. DIY's barbecue sauce, so I needed to make a slipcover for it.
I ordered some fabric from Fabric.com and it arrived a few weeks ago. I found a tutorial online over at Sew 4 Home and it helped me figure it out. I sat down one evening and measured, then last week I cut out the fabric. Finally yesterday I started sewing.
Not bad for a first try. I'd do a couple of things differently should I have to make another one, but
I think I'll put the slipcover away for now and bring it out when the house is all finished just in case there's another run in with barbecue sauce.
Hope you're having a good day!
