Old dogs, new tricks.

I’m hopeless at remembering to take ‘before’ photos. I had to trawl back through time before I found one that was good enough to show how the old couch looked. Brown. Corduroy. Mmmm. The bonus is you get an old photo of 3.5 year old Fraser and six week old Lincoln to enjoy.

Couch in old fabric

And here’s how it looks with a charcoal commercial-grade fabric. It feels like mock suede and looks FAB!

I just got my Ampersand cushion cover from Aunty Cookie last week. I’m totally in love with my ‘new’ old couch. She’s a sturdy thing, a little over ten years old. With a solid wooden, sprung frame it was well worth recovering to give it a new lease of life.

And this week, I get to lay all over it because Matt and Fraser are away in Sydney all week.
