|After my husband suggested that I attempt to do the cushion myself I was insulted by his comment. How dare he think that I could attempt to do something so important to me, by myself. This piece deserved the fine hand of a real upholsterer who could bring this piece back to it's original state of beauty. But after thinking of how long it would actually take and how much it might cost, I took a quick trip to Joanne's fabric. After finding these two slabs of great layered firm foam I reconsidered the idea.|
|I purchased two pieces. 25 inches in width and about 76 inches long. It was a bit more than I needed and thought I might use the second piece for trim pieces. (Returning home I suffered a terrible "accident" with my truck. I will leave that for my next post, but thankfully I am ok after such a surreal experience) When I returned I asked my husband and friend Michelle who had come by, to help stuff the slipcover. We used both pieces.|
|I now acknowledge that my husband's suggestion was actually a smart one. I spent 34.99 on each piece and used a bread knife to cut to foam to size. I love that the foam keeps it's shape. I'm able to lay on it without making the cushion float up. It is firm and comfortable and I am so pleased with the end result. I'm happy we did it ourselves!|
Question for my blogging friends? So after I washed the slipcover with the dye free, chemical free, perfume free tide in cold water and on delicate cycle and treating it wtih a small amount of oxyclean I am still left with these stains. Any ideas how to camouflage them? Or remove them?
