Slipcover Make-Over In Our Family/Play Room

A few weeks ago, I found a sofa with a pull-out bed in it at a yard sale for only $50. It came with a drab grayish colored slipcover, which was ok. Certainly better than the somewhat worn, small scale red gingham fabric the sofa was originally covered in.
However, last night we went to the Penney's outlet to make a return, and I came across an ivory colored, two piece slipcover brand new in the package for only $19.95!
I think it looks and fits a lot better than the other one we had, and like the fact that the seat cushions have their own separate cover. It also has piping, which I don't think is visible in the pictures. It's easier to fit, with elastic at the corners, whereas the old one had 4 buckles in the back, etc.
I put the "after" pic first because it is prettier. ;-)

We use our lower level family room mostly as a play room and a sewing space for me. :-) The boys love having such a big room to play in, and since it is downstairs away from our main living areas, I don't worry as much about the mess they make. Haha I do try to get the family room all neat again at least once a day, though. I can't help myself. Ha










The boys love their tent from Grandpa and Grandma S. :-)











Our new little church also meets down here in the family room for now, until we grow big enough to need a rented facility.




So, as you can see, our family room is a very hardworking and multifaceted space. :-)








Hope you enjoyed the little tour!

Hi Jessica! :) I'm glad you stopped by my blog and also glad you liked my laundry room! I think it's neat that you lived in Australia...I'd love to visit there someday. My hubby is the music leader at our church, and we love it, so i can definitely relate to you guys! :)
Hope you have a great day!
